One of our favorite blogs these days is Made by Joel， the toy and craft projects that artist Joel Henriques makes for his kids. He manages to make A LOT out of ‘；nothing’；： dollhouses out of Cheerios boxes， puppets from paper clips and cardboard， cities from paper. The thing that we love is how Joel’；s creations affect our thinking. We find ourselves mentally applying his ideas and his sparegeometric cushion covers， modernist sensibility to our grown-up lives， looking at ordinary stuff as art materials， and solutions. We want his paper dollhouse furniture made life-size…；…；and wonder if the principle of slotted wood he uses in his toy animals could be used to make furniture， or a room screen..personalized graduation gifts

…；how we might apply the wonderful colors in his slotted building disks，
or even the disk themselves…；
Joel makes sure to explain HOW to make his marvelous inventions –； often including templates and drawings， like this plan for a backyard playhouse

…；we find ourselves learning about how things work， like how to use？his favorite tools：
And we start thinking “；yeah， we can do that”；， imagining our big ideas…；
Hi everyone, Heidi from www.makeyourlifecolourful.com here, today I would like to show you a home decoration project that I designed around the April CCB Challenge theme which is “Woodgrain“.
T.G.I.F. ?Seriously. ?This week has been a killer! ?But it’s slated to be a gorgeous weekend around here, and I also have a fabulous new accessory to show you how to make today. ?All this craziness in my household has translated to MUST USE HAMMER. ?I’ve been playing around with a few hammered wire designs lately, and I finally hit on a design and supplies that I feel 100% comfortable encouraging beginners to try out – I’m excited to share with you how to make hammered wire jewelry. ?I started with earrings today, but I love them so much you better believe this will be part of a matched set, I’m thinking next week I’ll play with a few other designs!
For those of you who aren’t sure what an electric bike is—they’re essentially ordinary bicycles with a battery-powered motor. They’re designed to give you an extra boost when you push the pedals, making them perfect for hilly terrains or during long-distance cycles. While most e-bikes are chunky, heavy, and likely to cost you a small fortune, the new AM1 electric bike by Analog Motion is designed to be sleek, ultra-light, and affordable.
