Joel Henriques

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..

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.
