  • Gearing up for a visit from the pope? Get your home ready for the papal visitation with a tiny origami version of the pope’s tall, pointed hat: the mitre. The mitre (also spelled miter) is a formal headdress for high offices of the Roman Catholic Church, as well as some protestant sects. Bishops, cardinals and the pope are traditional wearers of the high pointy hat. Mitres can be plain but are more often ornate, with embroidery, beadwork, and even jewels adorning them. Fold a classic mitre with these simple instructions to celebrate Pope Francis’ visit!

  • It’s back-to-school season, and droves of students are heading to dorms around the world with books, school supplies, and living essentials to make their dorm rooms feel a little more like home. This month our How-to Tuesday posts will be all about how to use crafty projects to make over a dorm room – and all on a college student’s budget. 

    Privacy is a luxury worth protecting in your average dorm room; with scholastic and social demands filling up the calendar, taking time to curl up with a good book is essential. Give yourself an added layer of reading privacy with a simple DIY bed canopy you can design and hang yourself (without giving your RA a heart attack).

    Sleeping, studying, snacking… did we mention sleeping? Cozy, comfortable bed sheets are an important part of dorm life! Make your bed stand out with a little custom fabric stamping on your pillowcases and sheets. This is a great project to do as you pack up sheets for school, with your new roommate once you get there, or with other friends on the floor as you get to know each other.

    By stamping just the border of the flat sheet and the pillowcases you get a lot of impact with very little paint. Plus, by painting only the edges, you won’t even feel the painted parts as you drift off to sleep. 

  • The bad news is that it’s Monday again. The good news is that we’ve rounded up some of the best bookish, geeky, and crafty links of the last week to help get you through your day. Whether you are looking for a new short story to read, or dreaming of a bookish vacation, there’s sure to be something here to make your Monday a little brighter.
