{June 16, 2011}   It’s a Newborn Geocache!

I’ve been geocaching for a few years now. Managed to find them in all sorts of different countries, France, Germany, and Cuba included.

Quick lesson: Geocaches are small containers hidden all over the world, found by following GSP coordinates. The finder writes their name, date, and trades an item if there is enough room. More found here at

A few weeks ago I put together a newborn geocache of my very own! It’s quite easy to make one, if you want to get in on the fun too!

I used magnets bought from the dollar store, black duck tape, and a mint tin from Starbucks.

After a bit of stretching, wrestling, and pulling the tape off me, I stuck the magnets and tin together.

Then it was just a matter of finding the right fence to hide it at. Near my apartment window, where I can watch people try to be stealthy, Perfect!

Geocaching can take you to places you’ve never been in your own neighborhood.

{April 3, 2011}   Fairy Tale Fashion

There is nothing like a good story from a Golden Book to bring me back to my childhood. This reuse fashion creation, turning classic stories into a beautiful gown fit for a queen is an amazing idea! Designer Ryan Novelline brought this Fairy Tale to life, using discarded books and the golden spines to create a well fitted corset.
