Craft Nook Organization Party

I felt the need to add party to the title to spice things up a bit. You know, not everyone likes the word organization. But really, it doesn't have to be a four letter word. I think as long as you have the right tools to do it with and enough space in which to organize it can be down right fun. What I don't like, is the cost of organizational tools.

The mark of a beautiful city, just a few years ago, was impressive infrastructures, soaring skyscrapers, bright lights and fast cars. Today, however, the standards of progress seem to have shifted. People are now working on creating greener cities, rich in natural resources and blooming gardens. Indeed, the concrete jungle is now transforming into a lush, green landscape. The beauty of today’s green movement is that you don’t need vast hectares of fertile land just to build gorgeous gardens…

Easy Stained Glass Window

Don't toss your broken glass pieces! Turn them into a beautiful stained glass window for your patio. I used dollar store glass marbles These windows were 18" x 36" and I picked them up for just a few bucks on Craigslist Watch how easy it is to do here! Once I finished gluing on the glass pieces I filled the window with a small layer of resin to smooth out the sharp edges. Worked perfectly! Instead of a torch to pop the bubbles, you can use a long arm lighter.
