How to Make Coffee Filter Butterflie

s Coffee filter crafts are inexpensive and fun for all ages. The coffee filter butterfly step-by-step process includes coloring the coffee filter with markers or watercolor paint, allowing the filter to dry, creating the wings, and making the body.

My kitchen tour, let’s take a sneak peak at my kitchen, where I take your through my kitchen

Right, kitchen tour was in the plans for more than a year now. When I renovated my kitchen early last year, I was so tempted to do a kitchen tour. But it took a lot of time for me to settle. Not a great organizer myself, so took help from Vj, especially for the storages. Since I am in Singapore, got most of the things in Ikea and online shopping.

I had plans to buy few more stuffs from India but this year since we could not travel, I thought I will just go ahead and post this. I love my steel dabbas I used...

Clothes to wear before, during and after Thanksgiving to make your little turkeys the cutest!

I see a big hole in the holiday fashion market. There are plenty of Christmas outfits for children and loads of Halloween options, but a very small slew of Thanksgiving-themed attire.

Richard Avedon, Marilyn Monroe, and Hollywood’s Blond Mania

In 1954, Marilyn Monroe was already a Hollywood phenomenon. In her earliest cameo in the 1950 film All About Eve, Monroe’s character is briefly introduced to Margo Channing, a grand diva of the stage played by Bette Davis, as Miss Claudia Casswell, a graduate, as her chaperone condescendingly quips, of “the Copacabana School of Dramatic Art.” Miss Casswell is then summarily dismissed, sent off in the direction of a big producer in the other room on whom she is expected to level her feminine wiles. In a ten-second cut, we watch the bit-part character becoming the outsize star who plays her. Monroe employs an arsenal of subtle optical adjustments, turning on an inner glow and flashing her most mesmerizing smile....
