Anyhow, prior to my cocktail extravaganza, I was crafting away this weekend. I am in a very crafty state of mind these days. I've been making these magazine bowls for friends, it's like knitting. But instead of a basket of yarn, I have my basket of folded magazine pages.

|Coiled up pages, original DIY here|
|Another use for the coil|

Also, block letters are all the rage these days, but they are hecka expensive. I thought I would put some old cardboard boxes to good use, along with pages from an old dictionary. I was sort of inspired by this pinata DIY.

|S is for Songbirds, tweet tweet|
|Some branches and tissue paper make a simple decoration|
|Here's one of those paper flowers|
I gave the letters to my friends as a housewarming gift. They loved them! Now I just need to find some time to make the whole alphabet!
