  • DIY Glitter Resin Tray

    Don't be fooled by its luxe looks, this glam tray is a surprisingly easy DIY project made using a mixture of glitter and resin. Most of the work is in the mixing – after that, you just set it aside and let it cure. Be sure to work outside or in a well-ventilated area as resin fumes are toxic. Ready? Let’s begin!  Read more ➜

  • Learn to Weave

    My mother is a weaver, so the apartment I lived in as a kid had a loom that took up half of our living room. Growing up, I loved sitting on the ground and watching the loom’s pedals going up and down, with the sound of the shuttle moving back and forth as she worked.

    Since then, I have often dreamed about having that loom back in my life. But in the meantime, I’ve learned that you don’t need to invest in a large professional loom to learn the basics of weaving. You can make your own loom out of a simple piece of re-used cardboard instead!  Read more ➜
