on the cinder block planter what did you use to cover the bottom of the blocks to keep the dirt from coming out
If you click through to the actual blogpost, cinderblockplanter , you’ll notice that it takes you a blog, Traditionally Modern Design. Reading the actual description, the original creator used cut up cinder blocks and liquid nails. You can also use heave duty canvas, mesh, or concrete board and liquid nails to get the same effect. I’d probably use the canvas or metal mesh so that moisture would not collect, but note that the canvas will have to be replaced as it can deteriorate over time.
I am looking for the owl hat that is multicolored... the rows are different colors. Any ideas?
The owl hat I featured a while back has been removed. I’d suggest using a “Shell Stitch” hat pattern (which can be Googled), and alternate the colors. It will give a similar effect. Then just embellish like you would for the owl hat…ie, ears, nose, eyes, etc.
I started following you when Olive was just a few months old, if that. It's great to see her now, modelling the things you make!
thanks! sorry I haven’t been posting like I use to, but Olive is definitely keeping me busy…Oh, and I’m expecting another little girl in just 6 weeks. It’s been a whirlwind experience with our expanding family, but I’m looking forward to having 2 models now!!
Hi! I just started following you tonight (which means I just spent all night looking through all your posts [:) and I was just wondering if you had any ideas for Christmas presents from one broke college student to another. I've been feeling extremely crafty lately and it's that time of the year! Hope your holidays are kicking off swimmingly!
thanks for the follow!
I would first have to ask, what does this particular friend like? Their personality and likes/dislikes are going to dictate the type of gift. Me, I’m destined to feed the world one friend at a time. This year I’m going with “gifts in a jar.” Easy. Economical. Who doesn’t like food? Here’s a recipe for Pasta Fagioli Soup Mix from Taste of Home. (And it looks great in the jar!)
Here’s some more ideas for food gifts. Or maybe bake them your favorite cookie! (I’m notorious for my chocolate chip cookies.) Now if you’re not the foodie type. Why not offer to clean their place? Or wash their windows?
I hate to get philosophical, but you don’t HAVE to spend money. I think this time of year we all get caught up in the hoopla and we forget what really matters. Friends and family.
My holidays are definitely in full swing and I’m excited to share my DIY’s with all of those who follow my blog. Hopefully this weekend I’ll make some progress and being posting next week!
