CYBER MONDAY INFOGRAPHIC!

MONDAY! MONDAY! MONDAY! As it turns out Daily Infographic and Cyber Monday have something in common, most of the views/shopping take place while you are at work. You lazy good for nothings, what am I paying you for? Anyway if you’ve never heard of it, Cyber Monday is like the Black Friday of the internet. Black Friday of course being the Friday after Thanksgiving when everyone goes out shopping at an indecent hour for some pretty good retail savings. Violence has become a regular part of the frenzied event, this year including a woman pepper spraying fellow shoppers for an advantage as well as a men shooting a gun to intimidate shoppers.

A LITTLE INFOGRAPHIC TO HELP YOU DECIDE ON GIVING THAT GIFT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

3D PAPER STAR WREATH!

This comes from www.littlebirdiesecreats.blogspot.com .


I had a bunch of this pretty Christmas paper left over from last year (it's Making Memories' Mistletoe line), so I decided to use it up before I didn't love it anymore. I've been meaning to make a star wreath for ages, and after seeing a friend's 3D stars lining the wall on her staircase (super cute idea, by the way), I decided to try them out. Easy and darling! Here's how to make a 3-D paper star wreath for yourself.







3-D Paper Star Wreath Tutorial
Supplies:


*Patterned papers
*Scoring tool (scoring board, bone folder, or stylus)
*Hot glue gun
*Wreath form (I cut my own out of chipboard, but you could use a wooden one from the craft store)
*Buttons, brads, and ribbon

black velvet: it’s not just a name for a horse anymore! or kitschy paintings of kittens! or a ridiculous, cheesy ’80′s song!
wait. the horse was black beauty, not black velvet. just kidding.
also, that song is stuck in my head now. go listen to it. it’s ridiculous.



alright, let’s talk about this cake. aside from the fact that it’s uber-black (totally metal!), it’s also effing delicious. italics for emphasis and seriousness. it’s that good.
most scrumptious version of red velvet cake i’ve ever made. true story. you know how sometimes red velvet cakes are super-gorgeous to look at, but once you take a bite you realize it’s just a good-looking hea…
