I feel a very personal responsibility for plastic?waste as my father was instrumental in setting up the first polythene factory in the southern hemisphere, so when I read about waxed fabric food wrapping I thought: why not linen? I have plenty of scraps!

Dear Google. A search revealed products, DIY?recipes, suggestionstoddler pillow cases, so I ordered some?Amish beeswax and waited. It arrived deliciously aromatic.

Some instructions add jojoba oil to make it more flexible but I didn't try that this time, just a baking sheet (with parchment paper), a swatch of our Smooth linen sheeting scraps torn to size, sprinkled generously with grated beeswax and melted carefully in a low oven - I ?didn't want it to ignite! Five minutes did the trick.

I used an old (but very clean!) paintbrush to smooth out any gaps and returned it to the oven for one minute, then let the sheets cool. I was surprised how much beeswax each one used!

First use was to wrap up a delicious stinky cheese. When it was finished, any mess rinsed off beautifully with a clean sponge and cool water.

Next a leftover half of a deli sandwich was given the treatment.

Each time the heat of my hands was enough to mould the linen to the food. I love this! When each sheet reaches the end of its useful life, I plan to roll it tightly and use it as a candle, or as a firelighter if the flames go a little too high for comfort!

Have you carved or decorated pumpkins yet? Dan and I bought two pumpkins to decorate over the weekend but didn’t get to them because we were too busy stuffing our faces with fish & chips. I bought a few things to recreate?this pumpkin with the bats?so we’ll see how that turns out.?Is it weird that I like pumpkins as is? Without any decorations? If I had a porch I would decorate it with some of those multi-colored pumpkins. But that isn’t really much fun when you want to do something creative with your hands. I’ve done a?DIY Pumpkin Ideas post?in the past but since then I’ve seen so many pretty ideas on Pinterest that it was time to do a second one.

Eek!!! ?I am so excited, my first guest post will be up soon on Someday Crafts. ?I picked a pretty ambitious project…to add some wow to my DIY drum shade pendant. ?Before you see the full tutorial, I just wanted to share some more background on the two big decisions I had to make for my lampshade appliqué project; color and pattern.

Opening the drawer housing your jewelry and discovering so many chains or necklaces entangled together, or simply ending up in losing one of earrings of a pair is not a rare phenomenon. Why not ditch the hassle of unmanaged jewelry forever, while displaying them with prettiness at the same time? All with these incredible DIY jewelry organizers!
