DIY The simplest tea box

               This year I received many gifts for my birthday. Among them was a gorgeous vintage jewelry box. But, unfortunately, I have so many jewelry boxes that its fate was to remain almost empty. Because I wanted to see it every day I found another use for it: a tea box.

                I am a big tea drinker and I always wanted a box where I can store my tea bags. Now I have found the best solution and I will show you how simple the whole process was.

DIY Pyramid box

               Before receiving a gift you always see the packaging. It can sometimes give yiu a clue to what it’s inside, at least about it sizes.

                Thinking about this, I have created especially for you a pyramid box. You cannot find something like this for sale so I assure you that it will be a splash.

               Bend it on the interior stripes and make a hole in each end of each side.

                Glue three sides on each other, and the fourth one left it unbound. This will be the “door” of the box.

DIY desk organizer

            Yesterday I noticed a piece of wood in my husband’s working area. And as I thought it was very lonely, another great idea popped into my head. So I did not waste any time and I asked him if he needs it.

            Fortunately, there were plenty laying around there so he let me take it.

            And what do you think I wanted to use it for? To make a handmade desk organizer.

            I’m sure you’re wondering : from a simple piece of wood? ? Wellllll along with some other useless things, I successfully completed my project.

DIY Pringles can craft

                How can you not love Pringles potato chips! With their incredible salty taste that you cannot get enough of? I don’t know about you, but when I eat chips, I cannot stop until I finish the whole box. I know it’s not very healthy, but I don’t do it every day. A once in a while pleasure won’t hurt me, right?

              And let me tell you another reason why I like it so much. Because of their can. A can of Pringles can easily be turned into a cheap storage space.

Untitled-ENGLISH

                 How many times have you found yourself misplacing the needle while sewing? And then you’re carefully looking  for it but in the end the needle wins and it stings you.

                 I found the best solution: a pin cushion.

                 But of course I wasn’t going to make a usual pin cushion. And while I was looking at my mannequin jewelry holder a crazy idea popped in my head: why don’t I make a mannequin  pin cushion?

The sand box

             Every season has something special.

             I love autumn because it brings us so many fruits, I love winter cause it’s the giving holiday and I adore spring because that’s when all the trees bloom and the town is full of different scents.

             But I can truly say that my favorite season is summer.

             Yes, I know it’s unbearably hot.

             Yes, I know it’s  the loudest season.

             But summer has that something special that fills my heart with happiness every year: the seaside. I look forward walking down the beach, feeling the wet sand under my feet, run towards the waves or just relaxing under the sun.

DIY paper basket

DSC02009

        Do you remember when we were kids? I don’t know about you, but I was eager to grow up, finish high school, leave my hometown and come to the capital for college.

        Now all I want is to be able to turn back time to be a child again.  Not to change things but simply to enjoy my childhood more. To spend more time with friends, to appreciate more the people around me. To take advantage of every moment with my parents and my sister.

        Eheeee I know that is not possible, but sometimes nostalgia takes over me.

        And so it hit me the other day. I don’t know why, but it brought to my mind middle school and my desk mate.

        I remember how we used to go to the library and borrow 2-3 books  to make a report (not like now when I just seek information on-line).

        So I remembered one of my favorite classes called “technological class” where the teachers helped us materialize our imagination.

        And then my next project was born: to recycle a wrapping paper that I kept (for reasons i don’t remember). Continue reading »
