You're late, you're late, for a very important date! If you are always running a few minutes behind, it's time to craft yourself a solution with this DIY wall clock!
It’s the most common of queries after a guy doesn’t call you for a second date: what went wrong? A girl can go insane ruminating on such a question. Maybe you talked about your dog too much, or maybe you had a piece of lettuce stuck in your teeth all night. Rather than drive yourself up the wall with “maybes,” it’s often better to just write it off as not meant to be and get on with your life. A new website may be able to tell you the exact reason that a potential lover called it quits.

Before you paint a wall, you prime it, right? You want a smooth, even surface for your paint to glide over so that it looks it's best. Taking my art background into consideration for a moment, before you paint a canvas, you apply a product called gesso. It creates a smooth surface and tightens up the canvas. Well, your face is a lovely canvas and it needs to be primed before foundation too!
Giving someone flowers is a sweet gesture but if you don't know how to care for them, that sweet gesture won't last more than a few days. I'd come across a few odd tips for how to keep flowers alive longer: adding vinegar to the water, putting a penny in the vase, and bleach were among them. In the interest of not believing everything you read on the Internet, I decided to test them all out on bouquets of roses. You'll be surprised at the simple trick that will keep your flowers alive!
Summer isn't complete without cheery home decor. Instead of spending a pretty penny, make a set of DIY placemats. Even beginner crafters can take this on.
