DIY Magnetic Notepad

I have to admit, I am a bit of a push over when it comes to magnetic note pads. But, I don't like the price. I guess I could add a magnet to any old note pad, but I never do. I loved finding this DIY project on the Curbly website [link]. Plus, there are free downloads for the pages to print at home: four grocery lists and four task lists.


Wrapped Bracelet DIY

Here is a visual tutorial for making a bracelet with flexible vinyl (PVC) tubing, thread - wool, silk etc to your taste, double sided tape (5 mm width), and a knitting needle. Here is a link to the full tutorial, it is in Russian [link]. If you would like to translate it, try using Babblefish. 


DIY Sharpie Dinnerware

I have seen this technique on a lot of blogs and I have read a lot of reviews about this project. My first concern would be the comments about the toxicity of the ink. I search on the Sharpie website and found the pens to be a "Quick-drying ink AP certified nontoxic formula". First hurdle accomplished. The next concern I had was the ink washing off. I don't have a tried and true solution for this. I would recommend against putting it in the dishwasher. But other than that, I think it is a grand project and one worth trying. As I said, there were a lot of sites with instructions but the one I found first was at The Sweetest Occasion [link].
