Sparkle Cards!

What you'll need:
-glitter (of course!)
-blank white cards (or you can cut card stock to whatever size you want)
-some kind of glue pen (I used the Stampin Up 2-way Glue)

Take the blank card, doodle or write something, and sprinkle on the glitter. Simple as that. :-)

 This one's my favourite!

^Hahaha, the glitter that was left on the pavement when I finished making the cards.

Polished Rock Ring

What you'll need:
-Polished rock, geode, or some lovely little stone
-ring blank
-e6000 glue (or I'm sure there are other types of glue you can use!)
How to make it:
Take the ring blank, put a dot of e6000 glue on it, and press the rock onto it! 
Then all you have to do is wait for it to dry and yay, you have a new ring!

I'm loving my new rings :-)

DIY Sun-catchers (or whatever you want them to be!)

What you'll need:
-plastic beads
-circular cake pan
1. Fill your cake pan with a layer of plastic beads. If you want the outcome to be a sun catcher, you should use a lot of transparent beads. If you just want it to be a little plate or decoration, you can use whatever kinds and colours of plastic beads you want.
2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and bake the beads for 20-30 minutes. (Mine took around 30 minutes)
3. Wait until it entirely cools. I put mine in front of a cold vent, and after a while they began to make a cracking sound which meant they were detaching from the bottom of the pan. Then you can just turn it upside down and tap the bottom of the pan a couple of times. It should come right out! Done!

By the way, the lemons in this photo are earrings! And you can get your own fruit earrings here!

My mom saw mine and decided to make one, too!

Flowers, flowers, flowers

It's been so nice outside, and I have been going crazy taking pictures of flowers. I was recently introduced to an iPhone app called Duomatic, and that's what I used to create the pictures below! You basically just select two photos and then the app turns them into one. It's really easy to use and is super fun!

Royal Futura

I was so excited when my mom came home today with an awesome find for me- a Royal Futura typewriter! It is such a lovely colour and I just had to put some pictures up! I can't wait to start using it some more.
