how to make a ipad + kindle cover from a book

>> 2.15.2011

adding a bit of your own personality to your tablet pc is a simple as hollowing out an old book. you could buy one {like this from pad + quill} or go the diy route and create your own.

all you need is:
an old book that is at least 2" larger than your tablet pc on all sides, an exacto knife, a ruler, glue, a pencil, fine grit sandpaper + some patience.

how to:
1. open up the book + lay your tablet pc on top
2. trace the outline of tablet
3. use an exacto knife to cut shaped hole, stopping at the back cover
{it is easiest to work a few pages at a time}
4. lightly sand inside the hole to smooth pages
5. add a layer of glue where you just sanded + allow to sit overnight {with a heavy object to weigh it down}
6. insert your tablet + that's it. you are protected in cool school style!


bleach pen batik

>> 2.14.2011

yeah, it's martha monday!
i'm loving this bleach pen technique... so pretty! here's what martha has to say about it:
"Bleach is usually off-limits where colored fabric is concerned, but this decorative application gets our full approval. Using a bleach pen, we created the look of batik (a type of patterned Indonesian textile) on a blue runner and napkins for a coordinated table setting. Try this technique on pillowcases, curtains, and even canvas tote bags."


that's the fork i know

>> 2.11.2011

'where’s the salad?
the salad comes after the meal.
but that’s the fork I know.'
pretty woman is one of my all time favorite movies! charisma she had, table manners... not so much. me however, i learned to set the table from the day i could reach it. and i am pretty sure i've wooed a few of my friends with my etiquette {or at least i think i have as i am always invited back for dinner}.

so how important is it that our kids learn to set a proper table? humm, pretty important in my book. but it can be fun for kids with 'diagram' placements. be sure to check out the free download here.
