Picture of Carleyy's Blog Round Up - July 26th

I am excited to present the third post in my Blog Round Up series!  May you be inspired to make your own crafts and share them with the world!

This week I'm broadcasting live from Siggraph 2010 in Los Angeles.  Siggraph is a special interest group for graphics and interactive techniques.  The coolest thing I've seen so far is a taste simulator that changes the taste of food through smell.  This could be a new form of interactive simulation.  I have seen the future!  Keep a check on my page for pictures and highlights of the conference.

Step 1: Decorating Accents

My roommate and I are in the accent stage of decorating our apartment.  We've got all the furniture, now we need to add those final touches.  Here are some decorating ideas for those home decor embellishments.

This is a cheap and easy way to decorate your walls with out the hassle of painting or installing wall paper. It is a string wall mural found on re-nest. There are so many different ways you can configure string on your wall using this technique!


Maybe you need something pretty to adorn your table or counter?  These chic bud vases are made out of light bulb.  Find similar crafts at unplggd.

Yulia's paper art includes some elements of paper quilling. There is a tutorial for a quilled butterfly on instructables. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-quill-a-butterfly/ A tutorial of the style is available on craftastical. http://www.craftastical.com/2010/05/tutorial-quilled-monogram-letter.html

I was doing an Instructable on how to make those amazing paper perfect pictures, but mine resulted in something not quite as good. It was a butterfly. A very cool butterfly. :D

The light-bulb vase thing has appeared here on Instructables a couple of times: http://www.instructables.com/id/Light-Bulb-Vase/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Reusing-Lightbulbs-as-planters-or-mini-terrariums/ http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-hollow-out-a-lightbulb-and-make-a-stand-for/ (and more!) (not quite so pretty as the one at your link...)

There are a lot of great re-purposed light bulb projects. I really enjoyed the form of this vase and the picture.
