I can`t take anymore red underwear, red socks, red mugs, red pillows, red candles, red ugly disturbing nightgowns- no red please!

I saw this very simple yet fun DIY on Globetrotter diaries and had to share it; not because it`s St. Valentine day today, no, just because I-like-it.


– Thick black construction paper, or cardboard
– Scissors, or utility knife if using cardboard
– Prime lens with a wide aperture (A 50 mm f/1.8 lens is great here)
– Ruler

Dreaming a home

I haven’t forgotten blogging or home DIY.  Honest, I haven’t.  But the weekend had to be spent updating some technology around here.  Because of that, I’m taking advantage of what and who has gone before!

I think I could spend years just browsing the blogosphere and learning how to do things.  There are so many creative, intelligent and capable folks writing and photographing the entire process from beginning to end.  I could fall, like Alice, right down the rabbit hole – and not mind a bit!

This post is meant to be a kudos of a kind for the creators.  For the people who figure things out (because that’s just how their brains work).  For the people who freely share information  (because that’s how their hearts work).

My Time Well Spent

Paper Flower Key Holder

Here’s how:

1. Cut out a circle in the cardboard that is a bit larger than a quarter.


2. Cut your wire hanger in a section that is about 10î long.

3. Bend it like you see in the photo. It should have a hook and an area where you can glue it down. Each end should have a tiny loop. The tiny loop at the top is for the nail.


4. Hot glue the wire on top of the circle of cardboard.


5. Cut out 6 layers of book pages in a flower pattern provided using straight edge scissors and pinking shears so that your flower has texture.


6. Staple the layers together in the middle in an X (this is my big flower making secret)


7. Fold up the top layer to cover the staples and continue folding up the layers to make your flower come to life.
