Okay, this might just be my favorite thing I've ever made... but I say that a lot. And thank goodnesss for my friend Shauna and her baby girl Katie for sharing their amazing nursery with me! Make the pictures look so, so good. Make one for your baby, or just to hang in your home like I did. Here is my eHow tutorial:

Can't believe it is August and I'm just getting around to putting my patio together. I took an old wicker couch and gave it a makeover. And, because bar carts are so big right now, I found an old medical cabinet and took the doors off to create this outdoor side table. Both of these projects were so easy to do. And, the best part is, they were super inexpensive! The most costly thing was the cushions. I think I paid about $100 for them on Overstock.com. The wicker couch and the cart I got off of Craigslist for $40 combined! Craigslist is the best! Check out how to redo your own with my eHow articles! And, send me pictures!!! I will post them!

This project was so fun to make! But, it took me a little while to figure out how to actually get the damn thing in the air. It all boiled down to the tail. The kite itself is light weight and "papery" due to the freezer paper (I thought of using freezer paper myself, thank you very much) so it needs a little weight. A loooooooong thin plastic tail (like 15 feet long. You can cut and tape trash bags together) would have been best, but you know, plastic doesn't really look the best in an article. That's a little blogger truth for ya! I used two long pieces of ribbon and I got it up. Did't get good pictures though, because it was nearly dark by then. Don't get frustrated if yours doest fly on the first try. Play with the tail length and make sure you've got a breezy day, or it really is just hopeless! Good luck!
