I’m pretty sure this is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Dalton Ghetti has a gift. An incredible gift that you all must see.
A razor blade, sewing needle and a sculpting knife are the only three tools Dalton uses. A magnifying glass? Nope. Just those three tools and an incredible amount of patience. He’s never sold any of his artwork and spends anywhere from a few months to years crafting one pencil.
The full article feauturing Dalton is online on Odd Stuff Magazine, and can be found here. It’s a must read, to say the least!
Crazy cool, right? I was speechless after I saw these photos. The best part? These are real, crafted by an outta this world artist. Cheers to you Dalton, you are truly one-of-a-kind.
Introducing our first harvest…
And yes, they were just as delicious as the look.
I entered two of my little DIY projects in this week’s Pottery Barn inspired Challenge on the CSI Project website.
Have you guys heard of this site before? Every week, the CSI Project posts a new challenge and invites bloggers to post their personal creations on its website. It’s a brilliant concept, and a great place to get ideas and inspiration.
I posted my Pottery Barn inspired DIY Chalkboard Garden Tags (for step-by-step instructions, click here)…
And my Pottery Barn inspired DIY Necklace Storage Solution (for step-by-step directions, click here)…
There are hundreds of projects already posted on this topic on the CSI Project website. Fellow bloggers – you continue to amaze me with your crafts and creative ideas! Keep the brilliant creations coming…so many potential projects, so little time.
Even though I had nearly a perfectly perfect weekend, I still have that Sunday night feeling in my gut…the work week is once again knocking at the front door all too soon!
Anyway, I have the fabric bug. I could spend some serious cash at Premier Fabrics, not because fabric here is expensive, but because I like nearly every design. Hear me out…
Best Friends Collection
Large Houndstooth Collection
Zig Zag Collection
I’m eyeing the Suzani Collection fabric for my dining room that’s in progress. So far I have the chairs, table and rug nailed down, but the curtains are driving me nuts – I swear, there’s too many options out there. Enough to drive a girl crazy, that’s for sure. If none of the above fabrics caught your eye, there’s many more here.
Happy week to you all – where did summmmmer go?!
