Caitlin Murray Giles is a full-time mother of three and part-time freelance writer living in Wicker Park.See more of Caitlin's stories here. April 23, 2010I LOVE paper craft, as you can do it whenever wherever with whatever piece of paper you have!
Then it got better, they then went to a party… and ended up TEACHING their friends how to make boats. This is a little trickier than the paper cup craft from a couple of weeks ago, but once you know how to make one, you can make it anywhere out of any scarp paper (even a bus ticket!!).
Do let me know how you get on with your paper boats and I would love to see some photos too!

The Oxford English Concise Dictionary (OECD) defines Meander (verb) as being a€?to wander aimlesslya€? or (noun) as a€?a circuitous journeya€?. The Braemar is small for a cruise ship by modern standards, at only 640 feet LOA and 950 passengers (350 crew).
Our itinerary took us from Barbados to Curacao, Aruba, Jamaica, Mexico (x2), Havana Cuba, Grand Cayman Island, and back to Jamaica. The other pleasant thing on this trip was that the shipa€™s doctor, one Dr Bob Jones, turned out to be a very old school friend of mine who I had not seen for 52 years. I gather the supper held on 18th February with Adam and Mary Reay at the helm went well with 83 people attending.
Also at the supper we presented the John Hyatt trophy for the photo getting the most votes in the annual photo competition.
After the presentations, Neil Eccles gave us an excellent talk about his and Brona€™s experiences with keeping their boat, Cutaway, on the West Coast of France. The next and final supper before the summer is on Friday 15th April when Richard Pierpoint will be the after supper speaker talking about Flexisail, his yacht-share scheme (see the linked advertisement on the Social page of the LTSC Web site).
I have several a€?computersa€? at home, but the iPad has very rapidly become my computing device of choice for everything from downloading and reading The Times every day (much cheaper than the paper edition!) to e-mailing and web-surfing. Notice how carefully I have avoided all mention of getting the chute wrapped around the forestay and tearing it on the now defunct (splash) steaming light in the middle week? This montha€™s blast shows Maureen Harris and Pat Stacey discussing what to do with Ray Collier who was somewhat comatose after a particularly good Meandering lunch on board John and Pat Staceya€™s always hospitable Mixit. Hey, its Spring!A  The 1st of March has come and gone, and according to the UK Met Office the 1st of March is the start of that most glorious time of year, Spring. I have several a€?computersa€? at home, but the iPad has very rapidly become my computing device of choice for everything from downloading and reading The Times every day (much cheaper than the paper edition!) to e-mailing and web-surfing.A  Apple has just bought out a new iPad 2, lighter and with front and rear cameras for video phoning etc, but I shall be content with just the Operating System upgrade for a while yet. If you want your boat to actually float in the water, opt for professional adhesives and varnish. If you are building a land-based ship for use during rainy, cold, or snowy days, you have a lot of freedom for design. My brothers and I used to make elaborate submarines with paper plate wheels, dials, and controls. One way to help stabilize a narrow boat is with an outrigger – a narrow floating bar the length of the boat attached by some rigid material. The most important part of building a cardboard boat (especially one to really float) is patience! To waterproof the boat, use a waterproof paint or varnish, and seal the joints with silicone caulk – the same stuff you seal your tub or kitchen sink with.
Spring signals the arrival of strawberry season here in North Carolina and one of my family's favorite treats is strawberry jam. Nobody likes to feel like a number and we all love the personal touch when it comes to customer service. You can take any pair of shoes and transform them into elegant slippers with just the addition of some beautiful trim! I just love love love this "book worm" skirt by living with punks, and this heart themed breakfast from cute food for kids would be great any time of year, don't you think? Can't stop making things is back with this amazing and inventive charm necklace, and you can make some gorgeous ranunculus paper flowers with this great tutorial from DIY or don't, and I'm sure you'll agree that we're choosing to DIY! Just another hang up made these adorable bunting cosmetic bags, and these kimono baby shoes by nifty thrifty things, well, they are just beyond cute! And now for a little water related crafting: I just adore this artsy boat project by Ann Wood, and these mermaid crowns by, right, you guessed it, the very crafty Aunt Peaches.
I love architecture, and had a wonderful time sharing this interest of mine with my kids last month in Berkeley, California. I love this stream-lined mid-century modern home with its flat roof, set amongst the trees, and of course we just had to talk about this nicely preserved Volkswagen bus, since my kids had never seen one!
On the UC Berkeley campus there are some amazing examples of architecture, including the Hearst Mining Circle Building designed by the architect Julia Morgan, and Bowles Hall (I think?), a dormitory that looks like it was lifted right out of an English boarding school!
Start talking to your kids about everything and don't stop, they'll benefit immensely! Every year I think about trying to harvest some of these little purple balls to fill some vases, and to attempt drying them, but it's just a bit on the dangerous side due to all those prickles. I've been wanting to try my hand at making some giant paper flowers, ever since I saw the gorgeous giant paper poppies, here.
In the mean time, collect your supplies, namely very large sheets of paper, some wooden dowels and some green paper for stem details.
Doesn't this sweet work of modeling clay art, created by my 8 year old daughter, look like an oil painting of sorts? Explore the links above to learn about some more ways to use this technique for kids who might need something a little more structured for their first experience, or for toddlers who might enjoy smearing the modeling clay onto a picture of some kind.
This is a great way to combine painting and sculpting, and with modeling clay one can apply layers of bright color quite easily. Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday, and another opportunity to get inspired for some great summer crafting!


First off, I am absolutely in love with these colorful tea towels from colorful senses, a simple applique project for even those with no sewing experience, and Se7en is back with this super creative woven fish project, just love seeing what each of her many children create! And speaking of woven, love this woven package topper from mini eco and this dyed rice art from wayward girls crafts is just too much fun!
Isn't this leaning tower of Pizza project from make the best of everything just the cutest?
Maya over at the little treasures made these simple yet elegant crocheted head band, and I just love this simple leather hide purse from between the lines, gotta love that flower too, right?
A paper plate portrait from the chocolate muffin tree is a great craft activity any time, and how about making some whacky wigs for a fun summer activity? And from now on, should I ever paint a picture with a moon in it, or more likely make a collage with a moon in it, I will feel absolutely justified in making my moon orange, one of my favorite colors! Kids can colour it in and take it in the bath or play with it on a small river (it will dissolve, should it float away).
Used to make lots of these many years ago but when I tried to make one for my little son the other day, I did not remember how!
10 boats and 30 people went and had a good time as described by Adam Reaya€™s report as event organiser, here, on the LTSC web-site. I had intended to take Selene, and all plans had been made with Peter Bennett who was going to crew. When Bob retired as a GP some years ago he signed on with Fred Olsen for a few weeks doctoring each year. The Octagenarian walking stick is just a chance to celebrate each year one of our many still very active over-80s.
Not strictly speaking a cruising event or competition, although the originator and organiser of the competition, Ray Collier, is one of us, and this time it was ace photgrapher Ray himself who won and to whom the trophy was presented by Barbara Hyatt. Illustrated with many photographs, examples of the lower costs in France than in the UK, and even an excerpt of Edith Piaff singing a€?Je ne regrette riena€?, Neila€™s talk had many of us thinking about emigration!
The first is that since Duncan Wright, our hard-working Rear Commodore House, with Elaine and Tracey, introduced the excellent new three course menus, the events are selling-out. As well as the vector-based Navionics charts I mentioned last time, Imrays have just added their English Channel folio in raster form as an App for the iPad at A?25. I have to go and try to find the leak through which Selenea€™s pressurised water system is pumping the contents of the fresh water tank into the bilge ready for the Marchwood YC Meet this weekend. Of course, there are still a few fundamentalists around who argue that the seasons dona€™t change until the equinox. As an appliance retailer, we get to see a lot of cardboard being used for its original, boring application as a box. As with any large cardboard construction a big appliance box is a great starting point for any imaginative project. A good pair of scissors can work, but for the ultimate versatility and precise cuts a box cutter works even better – although it can be more dangerous if you are not careful.
Tape works, but you will want heavy duty duct tape or good packing tape for the strongest bond. It can be open topped, or have open decks and enclosed spaces – the sky (or should I say the horizon?) is the limit. There was always a periscope – whether it was an actual periscope or a milk-carton DIY job with some mirrors. Cardboard can be forgiving, so you can start to fold a section to see how it will work before committing the particular fold to a permanent position.
Score a line by marking the line with pencil, then carefully cutting only one layer of the corrugated cardboard. Insert a wooden skewer through the point of the boat, and use that as your mast to attach two sails.
My daughter is a flower girl in a upcoming family wedding, and while we were happy with these shoes from Target they were missing that special elegant touch.
Here we are again, back for another week of crafty inspiration, with some great projects this week, especially for the sewers out there!
Berkeley has some amazing, even jaw-dropping, examples of architecture, from Victorian to Modern with lots of style in between. And hey, look at that tree, it's actually a humongous Yucca, (from the Agave family) we have some in pots at our house!
Don't forget to talk about how things are built, like this fun red gate for example also inspired by Japanese garden design and quite simply constructed using 2x4s. And in fact, in many cases children would much rather have conversations with you than do craft projects, alack alas, so do rise the occasion and help build your children's future by encouraging creative thinking.
I gave you a sneek peek of these giant paper flowers the other day here, and now I'm back to give you a few more important details to help you make a gorgeous paper flower centerpiece yourself. Once upon a time I was gathering props for a fashion photo shoot in Manhattan and purchased a bunch of dried thistle balls in a lovely shade of purple. Fortunately for me, we are in the midst of preparing for a family wedding, and a chance to satisfy some of my crafting desires! Well, I can assure you that it is not, rather it was made using a technique which I've told you about previously here, and here, namely sculpting pictures with modeling clay. One can draw a picture and then apply the modeling clay to the picture, but the most creative use of this crafting technique would be to simply create a picture without employing any traditional drawing tools— let the little fingers work with the modeling clay and enjoy! There's a really great range of projects in the features from last week, something for everyone. And I sure was lucky since these gorgeous pie pops were contributed by a blogger from Italy, il dolcelo portoio, who has some amazing food shots, and you can practice your Italian too! Here from our little spot on the earth in Israel we had a wonderful view of a total lunar eclipse which peaked around midnight I believe. Mind you, really observant readers might have noticed that I had a covert live, working, link to this blog from the LTSC site the whole time the matter was being debated by the powers that be - all you had to do was to open TellTales on screen each month and, voila, therein was the link before your very eyes waiting to be clicked! That is what I have been doing, meandering at sea for 2,950 nautical miles in a floating 5 star hotel.
When launched in 1992 she was originally 538 ft LOA and she could only take 727 passengers.
No, not one of those semi-submersibles which keep a bit of themselves above the water at all times, a real submarine, down to 138 feet below the surface.
The first time we chatted neither of us recognised the other, but talking to his wife, Jane, the next day the question of where I grew up and had gone to school arose and the facts became clear. The Titanic trophy goes for the biggest prang of the past season, and this year was for Barry Duttona€™s attempt to destroy what is now known as Duttona€™s Post (one of the transit marks with a ladder on it which the ferries use).


Particular thanks are also due to Neil for stepping into the breach at short notice when the originally scheduled speaker could not make the date.
Not quite sure which I prefer yet although waypoint addition is neater and more accurately accomplished on the Imrays. She still comes sometimes on Selene but back trouble has limited her in the long drive from where she lives to Lymington. Two weeks ago he arrived with pans full of pancake batter so we celebrated Shrove Wednesday up at the Folly with a plentiful supply of excellent pancakes for lunch. But if you work that way then summer does not begin until the summer solstice on mid-summera€™s day. The Titanic trophy goes for the biggest prang of the past season, and this year was for Barry Duttona€™s attempt to destroy what is now known as Duttona€™s Post (one of the transit marks with a ladder on it which the ferries use).A  Arguments that Barry did not qualify, being a racer rather than a cruiser, were speedily dealt with by the fact that he often turns out at Meanderers, and in any case the race he was trying to get to at the time had not yet started - so he was cruising!A  The Endeavour trophy went to John and Chris Chaundy for their voyage to New Zealand, although as someone pointed out to me this is not quite the first LTSC yacht to make that trip because Jill Lazenbya€™s son sailed her boat there when he emigrated. One sail is folded around the skewer, while the second is attached onto the mast at the top and bottom. And for those of us who don't really sew, well we can practice making hearts out of ketchup, also a worthy pursuit, don't you think? So if you happen to be somewhere where good design abounds, do take advantage of the opportunity to talk to your kids about architecture, and all that is involved in the process of planning and construction! I was totally enamoured by these thistle balls and the photos which included them were gorgeous.
The modeling clay is smeared with the fingers onto a piece of bristol board (namely a piece of cardboard that isn't totally smooth) and layers are built.
And since I realize that with so much information available to us all, there can be a tendency to just enjoy looking at projects rather than doing them, so let's all make a concerted effort to spend more time actually crafting and less time looking around! I read that we could expect to see an orange moon due to volcanic ash in the atmosphere from the eruption in Etruria not long ago, and that indeed was the case! Make these paper boats out of any piece of paper any place at any time (I remember making paper boats out of my bus ticket, whilst waiting to arrive at my destination)! That left me with literally no clothes suitable for the jacket-and-tie dinner at the Royal Corinthian YC on 5 March. Then two years ago Fred Olsen took her to Blohm and Vossa€™s shipyard in Germany and had her sliced in two and a 102 feet extra centre section added.
It was much like being in a small aircraft but with fish looking in the windows and a Moray Eel to watch. Both born in September 1940, we had flown model aircraft together, had been ace-keen Air Force cadets together, had gone to the same ballroom dancing class, and indeed had at various times dated many of the same girls. And the caterers need a couple of days notice about numbers, so there is an absolute booking deadline of mid-day on the Wednesday beforehand. We think this should become an LTSC tradition with a Pancake Race down the Folly Pontoon on the Wednesday after pancake day?
In a temperature which at sea was never once below 25 Celsius, and on land rather hotter.A  Sunshine the whole way, except for 10 minutes of rain one day in Mexico.
Both born in September 1940, we had flown model aircraft together, had been ace-keen Air Force cadets together, had gone to the same ballroom dancing class, and indeed had at various times dated many of the same girls.A  So pleasant times were spent over refreshing drinks in the hot sun reminiscing about those who taught us, or tried to, at school, the girls we knew, and so forth. In the video below, varnish was used, and the boat had lasted for more than 3 years of use on the lake (note that he made it from an appliance box).
Not that I'm encouraging you to buy or eat Pringles, but hey if you know someone who does, why not snag some of their cans and make one of these kaleidoscopes from the chocolate muffin tree. Ask your  kids to think of three reasons why, for example, someone would build a tower like this one. Fast forward to late June a few years later when I found myself on a bus in Israel heading to the North of the country to the very city I now call home. Once the picture is finished, a coating of white glue is brushed over the top of the picture to preserve it. Well, readers, I am sorry this blog does not appear at exact monthly intervals, gratifying as it is to find there are those who wait keenly for the next issue. A?11-00 gets you a bottle of reasonable wine at dinner as opposed to A?25 plus (I am told) on Royal Caribbean, and A?3-50 a pre-dinner cocktail. You can book with the a cheque (I remember that word, some sort of paper-based way of paying?) and the form at the back of TellTales, or by phone and credit card by phoning Jayne in the LTSC Office. Either way it is a planning boon, no more dragging paper charts home, and you can even pull it out and appear knowledgeable at Sailing Committee Meetings.
Willa€™s home made scones, Peter Bennetta€™s home made jam, and Tescoa€™s best extra thick cream in the wall-to-wall sunshine made for a memorable afternoon.
My case was eventually found and returned to me the next day.A  And, to be frank, not only was I without clothes but very tired. A?11-00 gets you aA  bottle of reasonable wine at dinner as opposed to A?25 plus (I am told) on Royal Caribbean, and A?3-50 a pre-dinner cocktail. Cut the skewer if your boats will be placed on a table, or leave it full length if that suits your needs. I looked out the window and was stunned to see the hills covered with the very same purple thistle balls I had purchased in Manhattan! Not only only are the paper boats a fun craft, but they are also a great introduction to origami and following instructions!
Yet the literacy rate is higher than in this country and the infant mortality rate is half of that in the US.
I never was much good at West to East Atlantic flights even when work meant I was doing them several times a year, but I have got much worse at it with age.
And MV Braemar owned by Fred Olsen is a nice ship, with well designed and sized public rooms. Its not only for an LTSC readership, I do have other friends, and this time will be largely about my own doings.
A 5 hour wait at the airport on Jamaica, plus a head-wind delayed 9.5 hour flight proved too much this time, so instead of sailing I slept. No, forget all ideas of dolly-birds, these were well-balanced, independent, outward looking people of my age, survivors of bereavement or divorce who had picked themselves up, started exploring new things, and got going again. Kids play in the street and women walk home alone after dark with no problems.A  No KFC or MacDonalds either unlike drug-ridden Jamaica where walking around at mid-day is a distinctly twitchy experience. The richest and most expensive place we visited was Grand Cayman Island, full of banks and shops selling diamonds, where a modest plate of catch-of-the-day (red mullet) and a beer in a bar cost me $33 US.
