Valentines Day DIY

17:52:00




Valentines day is just around the corner so I thought it would be fun to show you how to make some cute valentines day cards that are really easy to make.


All you will need is:

  • brown paper cards (or just get any colour card stock and fold it in half to make the card)
  • red and white paint 
  • a paintbrush
  • a black pen


I didn't actually take photos while I was making this but I figured the process was pretty self explanatory.


Mix the paint to your desired colour and paint the front of your card, leaving some unpainted parts around the outside.

Then when the paint is dry simply write whatever you want over the top.


You could write:






Question:
What are you doing for valentines day?


Till next time,
Erin xoxo.

Coastal Bushwalk

19:27:00

A while ago my Dad took some of my friends and I on a bushwalk and I thought I would share some of the photos I took with you. Most of the photos were really bad because I took them with sunglasses on and I couldn't really see what I was doing. I probably should have taken them off.

The walk was in the Royal National Park on the coast as you can probably tell by all the photos that have headlands and water in them. Which was a nice change from the other bush walks I have been on.
But then after we had walked through lots of trees and I almost stepped on a deadly brown snake we made it to a small waterfall that you could swim to and stand under.
The only problem was there were quite a few eels that got a little too close for comfort in my opinion and I found that I don't like having them swim over my feet. Especially when I slip on a rock and almost fall right on top of one (almost because my friend caught me).
The eels were friendly and were being fed bits of bread and meat by a little boy.
(My friend kicked water in the air so I could take a photo of it)

We wanted to swim here as well (the photo below) but unfortunately it was too windy and there was so much sea weed it smelt really bad.
Instead we wandered
Along the rocks.
and watched the water crash against them.


Till next time,

Farewell January

17:25:00

Honestly I don't know what happened this past month. It seems to have come to an end so fast. For me, two weeks in January were spent camping which was probably the highlight of my month. While I was camping I filmed a few things and when I got back I decided I would stitch them all together to make one big video. Okay, maybe not all of them, if I included every clip we would probably be here for days.

I've never made something like this before so it's not perfect but I hope you enjoy watching it nevertheless.






Till next time,
Erin.

DIY Calendar 2015

10:00:00

So this is kind of late...

Still, better late than never.

This DIY is really simple as all you need is;
Some card stock,
Scissors,
Glue,
Twine/yarn/or any other type of string,
a hole punch,
a printer
and a calendar template for 2015. Just search 2015 calendar template and find one you like.
Click the link to use the same one I did.
Some card stock
A gold pen


Step 1.
The first thing you will need to do is print the calendar out. I printed it onto normal A4 sheets of white printer paper and then stuck it onto card stock to make it stronger but you could always just print it straight onto the card stock to save yourself some time.

Step 2.
Glue the printed template to a piece of card stock.


Step 3.
Measure where you want the twine to be threaded through and punch a hole in the top of each piece of card stock.




Step 4.
Cut your twine to your preferred length and thread it through the holes on the left side of the card stock. Then cut some more and do the same for the left.
After each piece has been threaded through leave some space at the top of each and tie a knot.




Step 5.
Now attach the two piece of twine and tie them together in a bow.


To change the month shown at the front just untie the bow. Flip the page over and pull the twine through the holes and tie the bow at the top again.






Step 6.
(optional)
In the space left at the top of my card stock I used a gold pen to write some quotes.
If you have space to fill you could do the same of print some photos that you like from the internet or ones you have taken yourself and stick them at the top instead.


You know what the great thing about making a calendar late is???
You don't have to print January. I still did though. Oops.

Also if you have any ideas for a future blog post then feel free to let me know :)

Till next time,
Erin xoxo
