Twisted Yarn Buttons and Shawl Sticks -I-

I love making my own molds from old vintage buttons and other findings to use with polymer clay.  The other day I was rummaging through my large tin of "collectables" and pulled out this old vintage button I had for years.  It reminded me of some knitting or twisted yarn.  We decided to make a mold from it and then see what it would look like recreated in the clay.


Adding mica powders or antiquing with paint gave it quite a different look than the original piece.



We then decided that it could make a really neat shawl stick so here are a few that we made up.

HARLEY-DAVIDSON ROLLS OUT NINE NEW MODELS FOR 2010
More Performance, Features and Value Across Six Motorcycle Platforms

MILWAUKEE (July 25, 2009) - Harley-Davidson roars into 2010 with nine new motorcycle models, the most expansive new-product introduction in the history of the Motor Company.

Across six model platforms, Harley-Davidson achieves a fusion of tradition and technology in a motorcycle product line that offers more power, luxury, and style, and more value.

"This ambitious new motorcycle launch reaches to our riders with the incredible passion that Harley-Davidson has inspired for more than a century," said Bill Davidson,

Harley-Davidson Vice President of Core Customer Marketing. "We are thrilled to offer our customers nine new models and a full selection of products for 2010 that lets their enthusiasm for enjoying great motorcycles continue at full throttle."

Highlights of the 2010 Harley-Davidson® line include:
As the new king of the Harley-Davidson Touring line, the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited model delivers the performance upgrade of a Twin Cam 103™ engine, and features standard equipment items previously offered only as accessories on regular-production Harley-Davidson Touring models.

The new Road Glide® Custom model looks lean and mean, with a slammed suspension, 18-inch front wheel and a new 2-into-1 exhaust system.

The Wide Glide® returns as an all-new Dyna® model done in old-school chopper style, with black laced wheels, a chopped rear fender, black "wire" sissy bar, 2-1-2 Tommy Gun exhaust and an optional flame paint scheme. Priced starting at $14,499, the Wide Glide is also a great new value.

The new Street Glide® Trike brings stripped-down, hot-rod styling to the three-wheel category, and joins the Tri Glide™ Ultra Classic® in an all new Trike family for 2010.

Dressed in satin chrome and denim black, the new Fat Boy® Lo presents a darker and lower interpretation of the motorcycle that still defines the fat-custom segment.

The 2010 Street Glide® model gets even more hot-rod soul, with updates that include a larger front wheel, slimmed-down exhaust, and a new tail light assembly. Street Glide takes a classic Harley-Davidson Touring profile to a low, light and lean extreme.

No motorcycle on the road today matches the modern street attitude of the three exciting models in the Harley-Davidson VRSC™ family: V-Rod®, Night Rod® Special and V-Rod

Muscle®. The explosive performance of the liquid cooled Revolution® V-Twin engine keeps VRSC at the top of the power cruiser food chain in 2010.

The American motorcycle legend that is Harley-Davidson Sportster® features six models for 2010, including the $7,999 Iron 883™ introduced mid-year 2009 and four others priced less than $10,000.

Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations™ (CVO™), masters of shimmering chrome and bold paint, offers four new limited-production models for 2010. The CVO Softail® Convertible is a versatile urban touring motorcycle, while the CVO Street Glide is a high-performance hot-rod bagger. The CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® and CVO Fat Bob® models are refreshed for 2010 with new paint schemes and styling details. All CVO models are powered by a Twin Cam 110™ engine, the largest displacement V-Twin offered by Harley-Davidson.

Look for Less: Anthro cupcake stand -0-

I'm excited to announce my newest contributors, Sarah and Emily, from the blog Boxwood Clippings. They have great taste and are always coming up with simple and chic DIY projects. I love their latest cupcake stand tutorial and I think you will to! 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
We are always trying to make our house-keeping budgets stretch far, and today we’d like to share our latest project. On a recent trip to Anthro, we spied this cupcake stand…absolutely gorgeous, right?! We fell in love, but not with the price tag, so we thought we’d try our own version. We were thrilled with our results and saved our pennies too!

boxwood  clippings_candlestick cakestand diy 2

Here is what you’ll need if you’d like to make your own:

boxwood clippings_candlestick cakestand diy 1

Candlestick: Your candlestick needs to be a sturdy one, and the prettier the better. Ikea always has fantastic ones, alternatively the craft store will always a variety in stock. We got this one a while ago at Ikea on clearance for $2.

 Dome: These are very frequently found at the thrift store. This one cost $1.

 Plate: We brought our dome to the thrift store and matched up a plate for the perfect size.

Hot glue: We simply applied hot glue to the top of the candlestick, and pressed the middle of the plate to the candlestick. We turned the whole thing upside down to dry.

This project couldn’t have been simpler, and only cost $4. We know you’ll love your results too!





We are sisters whose goal is to have it all…balanced, organized and beautiful lives on a tight budget. Join us on our blog, Boxwood Clippingsfor daily tips on design, organization, bargains, DIY’s and much more

Today I am featuring the home of Kayla Taylor. She currently is sharing peeks of her home on her instagram account. You can follow her @kaylawtaylor.

Here is what she says she loves most about her home:

I fell in love with my house the second we walked through it. It has been the perfect blank canvas for my design experiments and in three short years has already evolved as we have grown as a family. I have loved personalizing our house with secondhand finds because it has made every piece of furniture feel intentional and unique. I love our house. Someday we will look back at it as the place where first steps and first day of kindergarten pictures were taken and I feel like filling it with beautiful and inspiring things pays tribute to the important and special place that it is. 
 
Enjoy!

Small Updates Go A Long Way -0-

A few months ago my cousin Angela contacted me about giving her some quick and easy tips on sprucing up her Living Room. Her husband is in Dental School so her budget for changes was pretty m much nothing. Here is how her Living Room was looking originally:


The only word I can think of to describe this is brown... Since her budget is almost nothing she had to keep the furniture. So she changed out the pillows and made a chevron rug by painting a $60 ikea rug. 

This helped brighten up the space but it was still missing a few things. 




Her main concerns were that the room felt too dark overall. In general she just wanted it lighter and brighter feeling. Here is what I suggested she should do:

* Paint the room a lighter cream color
* Add more mirrors, one over the fireplace and one where her bridal picture hung in the corner of the room.
* Paint the end table and coffee table a lighter color
* Get rid of the curtains all together
* Add some floral to the fireplace, layer on some art and add color! 
* Add blues and greens where possible to balance out the warmth in the room. 

Angela got right to work making some small changes that made a big difference in the space!



She bought some cute paper from Paper Source and covered her coffee table books to add some additional pattern to the space. Angela also has a pillow shop on Etsy, Sew Hip and Humble, so she was able to sew the pillows herself. 



She followed my advice and painted the walls a lighter color which I think helped tremendously to brighten up the space. 


She got rid of the tuscan style art and candlesticks she had above her mantle and added some lighter decor. The mirror also really helps to brighten up the space. 


She created the subway art to put above her shelf using a decal from this etsy shop. The art displays places that have special meaning to them and the light blue color helps cool the space down and add a lot of color!  

The curtains she had before were nice but they made the room feel a little cramped. She replaced them with bamboo blinds which add a lot of texture to the space. 


She followed a similar tutorial to this to make a mirror for the corner of the room. I also suggested framing a print from a calendar to add some cheap art. She bought this one


She bought these little birds a the dollar store and painted them! 

By keeping all the existing furniture and just making a few changes to accessories and art she was able to totally transform her space!

Stitch Markers and Stitch Marker Holders -I-

This time of year has been much busier for us than the past.  Some of it is due to our working on creating new items to sell through the yarn shops.  We held off making stitch markers for quite some time because we thought the market was already saturated and so who needs another stitch marker, right?  So it has been really exciting to see how a simple item like our Brilliant Bloom stitch markers has become a very popular item.  The markers are very light so they do not tug or pull on your work.  We also make them in 12 different styles and colors so people like to collect them all.


We just finished a large order for one of the local yarn stores.  Some people would think making this many at a time could be tedious or boring but we really enjoy this sort of thing.  We just put some music on in the studio and Dave has his routine and I have mine -- it is like a mini "assembly line".


Of course we wouldn't want to do this every day but when you make large amounts at a time, it can help you perfect your craft.  And while in this "production" mode, it is perfect for talking and discussing ideas while we work and brainstorming for the next new idea like our Rainbow Lollipop stitch markers.  


We originally created this pattern for crochet to coordinate with our handcrafted crochet hook handles but we received a request for some with the ring for knitting.



So that led to the idea of making a stitch marker holder to attach to a knitting bag and are made in the same fun bright colors.





If you do not live in our area and would like to purchase some for yourself, we now have them listed in our Etsy shop.
