watery worlds...






I was looking for a pattern with snow globes and founds some pretty neat images I thought I would share. The pop-up paper globe is from Up With Paper (where I actually used to work, the ring is from the moma store and the others I found on blogs or Print and Pattern.

I'm not a cat person, but...


I saw this and almost fell off my chairs, precious!!!

more snow globe - mason jar ideas!




How incredible is this idea from Anthropologie? You can give gifts this year submerged in a snowglobe or just make a pretty snowglobe for fun. My fave is the teal mason jar. Here's how you can do it yourself:
You will need:
All can be found at a craft or haberdashery store.
*A jar of your choice (with a lid)
*Figurines or jewellery
*Anti-rust sealant for metal pieces
*Clear-drying epoxy
*Distilled water
*Dash of glycerin
*Large silver or white glitter (smaller versions will float at the top)

Steps:
1. Use clear-drying epoxy to adhere your piece to the inside of the lid. Let dry per instructions.
2. After the epoxy dries completely, fill your jar with distilled or boiled water (at room temperature, of course).
3. Add just a dash of glycerin so the "snow" falls slowly.
4. Add as much glitter as you like. If you don't like the look of glitter, you can usually find faux snow at craft and haberdashery stores.
5. Screw your lid on tightly and enjoy your snow globe!

PS. This idea came from well worn blog, check it out!!!
