We all know how cute miniature photos are, but let's talk about how awesome BIG can be. If you want to really make a visual impact with your photos, but don't want to pay beaucoup bucks for a 48" x 36" print (plus the cost of a frame), this is the way to go. Continue Reading
In the spirit of the new year, we're taking a look back at some of some favorites from the archives. Because old acquaintance should not be forgotten, we're bringing some inspired projects back to mind. Today, take a look at a DIY photo booth that is sure to be a hit at any 2012 bash!
Who says fabric is only for sewing? I, a self-proclaimed fabric hoarder, have lots that I don't see myself cutting into any time soon since I am waiting for the perfect project for it. In the meantime, that beloved print can still make a statement in my home! Framing fabric, like the photo above from Cape 27, is a great way to use fabric as art. How about more easy ideas?

I have a starburst mirror hanging in my bedroom above the bed, and my husband is always making some comment on how he is sure he will die from being impaled by one of the "rays" in the middle of the night. He's so supportive of my home decorating. I also love utensil art, as we've seen in my kitchen before. You can imagine, then, that I'd appreciate this DIY utensil starburst mirror! Continue Reading
Whether it is spending more time at the gym to get rid of that last bit of baby weight (hey, it is a little harder after the third baby!) or organizing your photos, we all tend to make resolutions at this time of year. But how good are we at keeping them? Here's an idea to help us in the making and KEEPING of our resolutions. Continue Reading
Starbursts and typography. Two words that were oh-so-hot for artwork in 2011. Another two words that came to mind rounding up our hands-down-favorite art/wall projects were 'unusual uses.' From cupcake liners to shoe polish, the materials used by these creative individuals was nothing less than inspirational. And did we mention that the resulting artwork was outstanding as well?
This holiday season, Curbly asked our friends, peers, and favorite design bloggers to stop by, have some hot cocoa, and tell us what gifts they'd like to receive this year. Today, we're excited to welcome Ez Pudewa, the founder and editor of Creature Comforts, one of our favorite handmade lifestyle and design blogs.
Hi there! My name is Ez (pronounced ee-zee) and I am most often found on my blog Creature Comforts where I write about DIY craftiness, share my photography, and post design inspirations...as well as any other thing that strikes my fancy. For me the holidays are all about the time you spend making memories with your friends and loved ones. It's fun to dream about presents under the tree, but even more than the gifts that will be unwrapped, the laughter and craziness of my huge family squeezed into one small house are what I look forward to most of all this holiday season. (Okay...and an iPhone. I'm hoping someone in my family will grant that one holiday wish for me). ;-) Continue Reading
If you're like me, the thought of a 'Home Sweet Home' sign conjures up images of women in petticoats sitting in a sewing circle. Quaint, yes. Modern, no. For those of us who love the sentiment but not the antiquity, check out these very modern 'Home Sweet Home' alternatives.
How fabulous is the image above? From Etsy seller handz, the 11-ish by 16-ish print will set you back a paltry 23 bucks.
Mom and dad and two little chicks, how cute is this print Continue Reading
No sir, I don't think white walls are boring... they are merely just a canvas for something awesome!
I am a big fan of stark white walls filled with colorful collages of artwork. I appreciate it in my own home as well as others. For me they evoke the feeling of a light and airy space and I love pops of color scattered throughout. Today I was crafting with a friend who has a fab little bungalow in the Venice Canals part of LA and she also loves her bright white walls... And her place still has lots of personality from the interesting and colorful artwork and accessories throughout. Continue Reading
Can you guess from what inexpensive material this starburst was made?
Hi, I'm Holly.First, let me say that I am super excited to be here on Curbly today for my very first guest blog post ever! Fingers crossed it all goes well....
So, I am a little obsessed (ok more like, a lot) with vintage sunbursts, starbursts, whatever you like to call them, wall art. I own some brass urchins that hang on my home office wall as well as a funky vintage starburst hanging planter that hangs on my bedroom wall. Oh, and a West Elm mirrored starburst hangs above my stove. I even collect a certain brand of vintage mid-century dinnerware in a pattern called Franciscan Starburst: Continue Reading
