Faux Wood

In honor of this excellent blog:, I offer up my cheesy faux wood grain hair clip. I've been trying to locate some nice wood grain fabric for my purses and clutches, and "It's (K)not Wood" came up in my Google search. I'm in love with faux wood! Makes me want to cover everything in wood grain contact paper!

I stumbled across this while tooling around on the pantone site looking for the 2007 Color forecasts. It's a fun little tool to find your birthday color. There's also an e-card option.

I'm "Beetroot Purple".

I recently stumbled upon this great website, Instructables: Step-by-Step Collaboration. It's an online communtiy where people post instructions for making anything from "Fire with Ice" to "Sexy Tightey Whitey Bras." I personally love the LED Throwies! There's a lot of techie posts, but also some excellent furniture and craft projects.

From the Website: "Instructables is a website bought to you by the partners at We make a lot of stuff, for business, and for pleasure. We've been looking for a long time for a convenient system for documenting our how-to projects, and the things we make, but it simply didn't exist. We decided we'd have to develop it ourself, and here it is, it will evolve as we grow to meet our own rigorous demands, and those of our users. Principal in our demands is convenience - it should take less time to document a project than it did to build it."

I've magically shrunk my full size purses into new smaller wristlet type clutches. Perfect for Dubloons! I'll be adding a few more shortly - I found some greenish wood grain print fabric, and some vintage dotted stripes.......
