Love Beer? How bout some Beer Crafts?

beer carrierEver wondered what to do when you have a bit too many of these after a party or a function ?

Well , I came across this rather awesome recycling idea from Design Sponge on what you can do with with your left over six pack beer carriers!! . Instead of throwing them into the bin bin…how about recycling your beer carrier into a sauce and napkin caddy which pretty cost nothing except your time?

All you need to complete this project is (aside from clicking on this link):

empty cardboard six-pack holder
-decorative paper such as gift wrap or wallpaper
-rubber cement
-pencil
-scissors

If you are feeling a little more inspired after completing this DIY idea, and like to  do more with your leftover beer bottles and caps, you might find some  really cool craft ideas from Shawn Gascoyne – Bowman’s ” Beer Craft” book…who knew you could make bracelets out of  beer can tabs? Happy crafting and hump day! 🙂 x NOtaHati

Photo Moment – Sunday down in my hood…

It’s been awhile I have been motivated to get up early enough to walk down by the beach behind my place on a Sunday morning. My usual excuse will be “its too cold” or the other one will..”I feel lazy”. But this morning was an exception as I had to get up and meet a friend for breakfast …and this was the view which greeted me as I walked down the beach. Yup..I am also back to sharing photo moments on my blog….

I am also on Instagram…you can find more of my photos by my username which is chasercloud. Here’s to a fruitful week ahead.

Springing back into Art…

It has been awhile since I have done an update. I almost forgot about this space  and had put down my crafty tools amongst the distractions of life in these few months..or longer than what is  a few months :).  No matter how distracted I feel…that is no denying the street art around Melbourne draws me away  from that …just for a few minutes and appreciate the talent behind the work where most times nobody don’t know who the artist is. What I love about street art around Melbourne (not to be mistaken for bad graffiti and useless tagging) is how spontaneous and honest they are and at times inspiring…and adding to Melbourne’s reputation as a city of arts.

Sharing some of the pictures I took during my moments of distractions :)…have a great weekend. Rachel@ NOtaHati
