I found this craft pumpkin vase tutorial on 52 Weeks Project and thought it was adorable! It actually reminded me of my DIY Painted Mason Jar Decor a little but because of the bright colors and the vase aspect. However, this idea is much more crafty! I would’ve never thought to use a pumpkin as a vase! Brilliant!
I wanted to share it for three reasons.
- My crafty audience will love this idea
- I wanted to give the artist credit because she deserves creative points for coming up with this!
- I will never make this because I honestly can’t think of a way to improve it. It is lovely.
So, if you like he pumpkin vase, check out 52 Weeks Project. The link above will take you to the tutorial, which is very easy to follow.
If you try it, let me know what you think!
I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it.

Books are inspiring. We can get lost in the world that the author creates, fall in love with the characters, or even change our outlook on life because of them. These people have been inspired by books and have gotten tattoos to remember the effect.

I recently got a new sketchbook. The first thing I do with a new one is to decorate the cover. Usually this consists of a massive collage of drawings, paintings, and sometimes bits and pieces of articles. This time, I preferred to go colorful and a bit less in your face.

Start writing and doodling.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there!
I was thinking about it today, and realized that I really don’t know anything about Mother’s Day. I know that it is a day to honor and celebrate mothers, motherhood, and the influence of mothers in today’s society. Of course, I researched it a little bit.
Mother’s day was first celebrated in the United States in 1908. The first memorial was held by Anna Jarvis, for her mother, in Grafton, WV. Afterwards, Anna campaigned for Mother’s Day to become a recognized holiday. Mother’s Day was accepted by other countries and is now nationally celebrated. Most countries celebrate the holiday in April or May and give cards or gifts to their maternal figures.
This is where it gets interesting. Four years after the creation of the holiday, Anna Jarvis created the Mother’s Day International Association and trademarked “second Sunday in May” and “Mother’s Day”. She believed that “Mother’s” should be singular because each family was supposed to honor its mother. It wasn’t meant to be a plural possessive commemorating all mother’s.
Visit the Mother’s Day Wikipedia page for Mother’s Day dates around the world.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
I found some more fun packaging designs via DailyDawdle!! I hope you enjoy them.
Creative fruit-flavored vodka packaging. I think this would be irritating to take it out of the packaging but I like the idea of it peeling like fruit.
I don’t think I need to say anything about the mustache packaging for the paint brushes!
I can’t tell if the watches are actually submerged in water or if it is just supposed to look like water. I would be more likely to buy something like this if it was actually in water though.
Coke cup packaging. Inventive!
Now this one is crafty! A cheese grater that peels like a pencil.
This one is my favorite: Fit Bun packaging is designed to look like abs. Ha!
I’m not 100% sure what this is supposed to be but it amused me so I shared it. Any ideas?
Unfortunately, there wasn’t much info on these writings and drawings, but I thought it was interesting. Read some of it if you have time.
This really shows that doodling reveals what brewing inside. There’s a reason for each and every one of them…
