Some time ago I received a book about architecture. Build, draw and learn - a book where you explore the great ways of architecture for you and together with your family. A great book for those of us that would like to know more about architecture or would like to be a architect, this is a great book to start with.
The book takes you though existing architectural masterpieces and architects work. You are introduced to a wide scale of product that architects uses in their every day modeling and you are challenged to make your own architectural exercises.
The last couple of days it has been all about spring cleaning at the office and in my stock. So there is empty cardboard boxes all over the place, that I until now just wanted to take to recycling. But then I visited this blog and saw these great cardboard box projects at this super blog. So I will save boxes for the easter holiday and then we can create castle out of them.

I love Wollfiller and their ideas. My best woolen cardigan has prolonged its life several years because of their ideas.Today Design Sponge feature a series about DIY hearts one of them is how to make woolen hearts for valentine day. Super idea why not take your loved ones beloved old sweater and add a heart any color any shape - just for the love. Old or new sweater will still be full of love. Take a look here at Woolfilller or over at Design Sponge.
In my daughter's kindergarten, they have decorated all their windows with these amazing stars, so simple and yet they make an instant christmas feeling. This star is relative easy to make and even if you decide to make it out of print paper(as I did) it will still have a "glow" to it. I also made one in news paper- see below.
50 years of decoration christmas tables is just amazing. Every year a number of people from flowerdesigner, a cook to an actor get the hornor of decorating a christmas table with Royal Copenhagen china their style. It makes the Christmas tables interesting to see every year - you will recognise the china, in new compositions of colours and interpretation of christmas. See more pictures and the rest of the Christmas tables at Royal Copenhagen official site.
Years ago I made this article about upscaling my kids small plastic animals and other funny thing. Collect a big pile of mini toys that your kids will not miss or will give you an ok to use. Take the selected frame and place all the figures the way you like — take at picture to remember the "pattern". Spray paint all the figures.
When dried — glue them to the canvas with a glue gun, and you will end up with a modern art peace to give someone, or put on the wall.
White mummies are
a fun project for Halloween or a ”scary” party.
The mummies are
reasonably simple to make.
You will need: *Juice bricks *Adhesive / glue
stick *White masking
tape (gauze, cloth patch on roll, white fabric cut into strips or a discarded
white T-shirt cut *into strips - there are many options) *Plastic eyes (available
at hobby shops) alternative paint the eyes directly on the mummy.
How to: Start by removing
the disposable straws. Wrap the mummy from
the bottom of the juice with tape -the more random, the more real it seems.
Remember not to tape the hole for the straw. When the juice
carton is completely covered, you can glue the eyes on and then mummy ready.
The straw can
alternatively be taped to the side again, or placed next to it.
Mummies that will
make Dracula's thirsty for juice
We have too many apples, even if we give to friends and family. So now we started our own little Apple juice farm. The taste of freshly pressed apples is amazing and is plenty reward for the hard work of collecting, cutting and squeezing.
While enjoying the last sun strokes, I have started thinking of Halloween and I am not alone. The 10 of October H&M will be launching their "All for children" collection, where 25% of the sales will be donated to UNICEF's work in India and Bangladesh. The fantasy world of H&M has a little bit spooky and a lot of Marie Antoinette, pirates and a "little mermaid" costume - I would love to be 6 again for a day or two. Mark the day a get a bite of the collection and help at the same time.
inspired for your next party. I have folded a lot of boats in different kinds
of paper and sizes. Use them as place cards or goodie boats. Use a map as tablecloth or cut the map in pieces of A3 (297mmx420mm) and use it for place mats. Set sails for new adventures
