SNOWFLAKE STRING ART CHRISTMAS CARD
We have found on Jaded Stephanie Pinterest this wonderful snowflake Christmas Card and we think that it deserve a try because it’s a beautiful, simple and modern design.
TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS TREE STRING ART CARD
If you prefer a traditional christmas tree card instead, here you have another design by dominicInOhio. It’s algo very minimal and elegant. As we can’t bring you the tutorial, here you have a similar patter or template that maybe you can use:
STITCHED TREE CARD

Minimal, elegant and very festive design, indeed, including the calligraphy and the glitter part.

Surrounding oneself with forests and nature is always comforting for the human being. In fact, there are even initiatives such as forest therapy where they echo this and propose a therapeutic approach to forests to reduce stress and to solve behavioral problems.
Another way to reduce stress is through crafts, so we propose to combine the theme of forests with String Art and we are going to propose a series of String Art Trees projects, see what you think.
Materials and steps
Before we start with the ideas, let’s go over the list of materials needed to make these projects:
- A wooden board
- A template with the drawing
- Colored threads
Once we have what we need, the process is very simple, since you will only have to go over the silhouette of the template nailing nails, and then the process will consist of knotting the threads to the nails and taking them from one end to the other until the figure is completed.
In case the String Art is in negative, you will have to nail the nails around the boards and fill the space, leaving the figure without threads inside.
Now that we know the process, we can take a look at these ideas.
Winter Tree Silhouette
We can start with a simple and very elegant figure. This is a String Art with the silhouette of a tree in winter that has no leaves, but only its trunk and branches. This String Art is in negative, the silhouette of the tree itself is left without threads, the space around it is filled. Really minimalist and ideal for decorating a modern room.
Oak Tree String Art
Here we have one of the most emblematic trees of the United States, the oak, a tree that has meaning and symbolism of longevity, strength, stability, endurance, fertility, power, justice, and honesty. Here is another beautiful String Art in negative, as the figure of the oak is without threads, and the white threads surround the silhouette of this majestic and powerful tree.
A classic style fir tree
Can you imagine walking through a forest full of fir trees? It’s a very wintry, even Christmassy scene that is truly beautiful. To penetrate such a forest using all five senses can be an almost mystical experience. In fact, in this link you can learn more about the benefits of forest bathing: https://foresttherapyhub.com/what-is-forest-bathing/. If you can’t go to the forest, you can bring the forest to your home and make one or several String Arts of fir trees, like the one in the photo, with a very classic String Art style, old style.
Tree of Life String Art
The tree of life is another tree that has a lot of significance. In Celtic mythology, the Crann Bethadh (Tree of Life), represents the invisible threads that connect all the elements of the world. The roots descend into the underworld (the world of the dead) and connect to the ancestors. The trunk represents the earthly plane where we live in the here and now…. What we like about this craft is that it mixes several techniques and that it goes out of the box. It is beautiful.
Bonsai String Art
We finish with another minimalist and zen idea. This is a String Art of a beautiful bonsai. It is simple to make and the result is very soothing and relaxing.
Did you like these String Art Trees ideas? Let’s hope so and that you are encouraged to make one yourself. Relax and love!

QR codes, which in case you didn’t know are the acronym for Quick Response, have entered our lives a few years ago, and it seems that they are here to stay, since it is undoubtedly a very powerful tool for the business world.
This type of codes allow many improvements in different business processes that makes them more efficient, as well as facilitates and improves the experience with customers in different situations. Let’s know all the ways in which a QR code, which are easy to create using a qr code generator, can help your business.
Differences between dynamic and static QRs
Before going on to know everything that a QR code can do good for your company, let’s know the difference between a static QR and a dynamic one. Static QR Codes cannot be changed once they are created and printed on a menu, flyer or any other document. In the event that the link is broken, nothing can be done, other than to reprint a new one. Dynamic QR Codes, on the other hand, are editable and can be modified in real time, which makes things much easier.
In addition, there are qr code generators, such as QRFY, with which you can create custom QRs with your logo, color or use the predefined templates.
It also helps you to control the number of scans performed per day, country, city, browser, language and you can export all this information.
Benefits of QR codes for your company
Now that we know how qr can be customized and all the additional information you can get with them, let’s see all the benefits it can bring to your business, whether small or large.
Easy access to information
The best thing about QR is how easy it is for the customer to access information about your business, whether it’s contact details, such as website, phone number or social media profile, or a price list or restaurant menu. Now everyone has an app installed to scan QR codes or do it with Google Lens.
Reservations and check-in
QR codes are also proving to be a very useful tool in all businesses where a reservation has to be made, for example, in a hotel, a restaurant or even in any business that offers a service to the public with a specific schedule, such as a beauty salon. When the reservation is made, a Qr code is generated. Upon arrival at the site, the person at the reception desk scans it in a second and obtains all the reservation data to verify it and register it in the system.
Promotions and discounts
Qr codes are also increasingly involved in checkout processes, but they are even more useful when it comes to applying discounts they have obtained through the store’s app, for example. In this way, you build customer confidence and build customer loyalty.
In short, QR codes can do a lot for the efficiency of your business and for the improvement of customer experience, so keep them in mind in your daily processes and you will all benefit.
We are sure you have heard a lot about Blackrock and Blackstone, especially if you are interested in the world of economics and finance. Their name can lead to confusion, as they are very similar, but they are really different financial companies, with their particular structure, functions and the way they approach their business. Here you can see the difference between them: Blackrock vs Blackstone, but let’s learn more about them, so read on if you are interested!
Let’s start with Blackrock. Undoubtedly, this company is a global giant dedicated to asset management. It was founded by Larry Fink in New York in 1988, and in recent years it has had a mind-blowing exponential growth.
What is Blackrock’s main financial activity? It is mutual fund management and manages mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that encompass many asset classes, such as stocks, bonds and real estate, not to mention pension funds, insurance companies and investors.
But Blackrock is not only dedicated to asset management, but also offers financial advisory and risk management services, as the company is globally recognized for its great capacity for financial analysis and management of very important portfolios, with recommendations of vital importance for all those companies that rely on its services, such as Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, among others.
As mentioned above, although the name is very similar to Blackrock, Blackstone has a different approach. It was founded a few years earlier, in 1985 by Stephen A. Schwarzman and Peter G. Peterson, and is characterized as an alternative investment firm, focused on specialized investments and private equity investments.
What is Blackstone’s core business? Well, it is primarily engaged in investing in alternative assets, such as real estate, hedge funds, private equity and credit. On the other hand, it also has its focus on institutional investment, where they excel in the management of pension funds and foundations, offering them the possibility of investing in the areas mentioned above.
There is a larger area of action, as Blackstone also acquires companies that are struggling or in a growth phase and brings them to a higher level of performance. This part of its investment business results in the restructuring of companies as well as strategic decisions.
Let’s not forget about your part in terms of your investments in the real estate market. Another strength of Blackstone is investing in residential, commercial, and industrial properties around the world. Not only does it acquire these properties, it also sometimes manages their real estate portfolios.
In short, Blackstone is dedicated to and specialized in investing in alternative assets and non-traditional strategies.
We hope that after reading these lines it has become clearer to you what Blackrock and Blackastone do and that you can appreciate the difference and that you can better understand the world of economics and finance, whether you are interested in it as a hobby or if you are thinking of investing.

There are many people who have a very clear dream: to start a beauty salon that offers many services, such as hairdressing for men and women, make-up, manicure, pedicure and any beauty treatment.
The first step to achieve this dream is to get a complete education and take courses in hairdressing, specific make-up and like Permanent Makeup Courses Edmonton, as well as manicurist courses and specific beauty treatments.
Once you have completed your studies, it is time to become self-employed and start a beauty salon. There are a good deal of furniture, accessories and tools needed to make such a business work, but today we are going to focus on our favorite and favorite theme: String Art. Read on to see all the ideas to decorate a beauty salon with string art pieces.
String Art with name of the beauty salon
The first thing you might think of is that the store sign is a work of String Art. As we can see in Akruti Beauty Salon, over a dark wood background there is a wonderful lettering in different shades of pink gradients, while “beauty salon” has golden letters. If you do not want to put it on the outside door, it is a beautiful sign to place at the reception. Add a few natural plants to the sign and it will look fantastic.
Butterflies with beauty
“Butterflies with Beauty” could well be the name of the beauty salon, but it is also a good choice if the business has butterflies as a theme, as it is a beautiful decorative motif.
The best thing about this Nail Art, apart from the elegant lettering, is that the butterflies form a crown where you can see different species of different colors fluttering around beautiful flowers. We have fallen in love with it.
Lips and lipstick
if something is representative of a beauty salon and its makeup section is big painted lips and a lipstick as a symbol, so this String Art can be a perfect option to decorate that make up corner, as well as if the main colors of the salon are red and black.
Hairstyle String Art
Another very important part of a beauty salon is its hairdressing section, so it can be a good idea to place in that section some String Art where you can see women with special hairstyles or daring looks, as we can see in this String Art where a girl is wearing an high bun.
Moustache and scissors String Art
There are beauty salons that also offer hairdressing services for men, so you can decorate that section separately, creating a corner that is a barbershop. For this, a String Art with a mustache, beard and scissors can be perfect, creating a masculine atmosphere inside the beauty salon.
So much for our String Art proposals to decorate a beauty salon. As always, we hope you have found inspiring ideas and that the result of the decoration is a space with perfect vibrations and energies to relax and enhance the inner and outer beauty of each person.

Let’s get to know, then, the best 2 player games online!
Fireboy and Watergirl
Fireboy and Watergirl 1: Forest Temple is a fun game and the goal of the protagonists is to get the red and blue diamonds and bring both characters safely to the exit. The heroes form a good team thanks to their complementary powers and weaknesses, such as fire and water. To get through the Forest Temple, they will have to work as a team, using their strengths. If you like this game, you can find more adventures from the Fireboy and Watergirl game series in other settings.

There is no doubt that this is an epic adventure with two legendary monsters. In this 2-player online game each person will have to help Dracula and Dr. Frankenstein reach the end of the dungeon. The key to this game is to work as a team to overcome obstacles and collect gems to reach the end of the level. I’m sure you’ll have a scary time!
Zombie Mission 3
In case you enjoyed playing Zombie Mission 1 and 2, now you can have fun with the 3rd part of Zombie Mission! Like the two previous ones, this is a cooperative game for 2 players in which each person must control a character with the intention of helping each other to overcome all the levels. The goal is to collect hostages and data disks with important information about humans and use all your weapons to destroy hundreds of zombies while avoiding falling into the dangerous death traps that lurk along the way.
Street Fighter 2 Endless
If you like classic one-on-one fighting games, there is nothing in this world like Street Fighter. Luckily, we can also play it online with 2-player games in this Street Fighter 2 Endless. When you start, you will see the mythical players Ken and Ryu and you can start fighting, even with the space key, which is shared, you can launch their special attacks. In addition, replicas of each character will appear. Amazing!
This is a fantasy game where you have to eat steaks, eggs and milk to make your little character grow, but be careful, as you can’t eat the poisoned potatoes or you will become small again. The key is to fight against the smaller players and run away from the big ones.
So much for our selection of 2-player games that your children will love. If you want, here is the io games list you can find more games and have fun together, have a great time!
Minimalist decoration has taken a turn for the better in recent years. From a Nordic decoration with very polished and straight lines, it has given way to a more modern and natural decoration, with curved shapes in architecture and furniture, as we can see in expormim.com, all decorated in beige tones as a background, but with the presence of warm colors like mustard or terracotta. On the other hand, exotic plants are a must, as well as elements of traditional pottery or handicrafts.
At this point, in the craftsmanship, we come to the String Art pieces, so we are going to propose some that we believe can look perfectly in a decoration of this style.
3D String Art Human Hand
As we see in the image above, the volume is important in this type of decoration, so we can put a String Art directly on the wall to recreate the 3D effect, or we can choose to make a Wire Art and hang it from the ceiling for certain corners or areas of the house. In this case, the shape of the human hand is spectacular.
The important thing is to play with round shapes, curves and volumes that match the architecture (arches, staircases…) and furniture (chairs, sofas, tables…).
Again we emphasize the curves and the female body is usually a sample of it, therefore, subtle and minimalist String Art with the figure of a woman’s body in elegant or suggestive positions may be the ideal complement to this curvilinear furniture.
In addition, they are very easy to make, since it is enough to glue the thread on a white background recreating those lines and frame it, as we can see in the photo above.
We can not leave behind the idea of the human body in this type of decorations, so we have found these wonderful wire sculptures by Gavin Worth inspired by the human anatomy. Although they are made with wire on a wooden board, think that you can recreate these figures with a String Art on the wall and the effect will be very similar.
The innocence of a child’s face, with its curved, graceful and tender forms, is perfect for this type of decoration, so a String Art where these faces appear formed by the contrast between the shadows and the white of the background canvas is touching.
A painting intervened with threads
Also in expormim we have seen this painting to decorate a space that is between the interior and exterior of the house, such as a porch, with a spectacular Japanese concept sofa. Notice that the human figure is again present, and from it come out lines as if they were branches and leaves of trees. Here the idea is to intervene a painted picture and replace or give volume to those fine lines with threads. The result is striking and overwhelming.
So far our proposals of String Arts, Wire Arts or Interventions with thread inspired by the human body to decorate a minimalist room according to the current precepts. We hope you liked them!
Gambling and betting is a real passion in many parts of the world, but especially in the United States, where it is a way of life and even a lifestyle. The thrill of gambling is something that adds spice to life and millions of Americans play games such as Live Casino Online or go to land-based casinos on a daily basis.
But it’s not only about casinos, poker games are also common among friends as a form of entertainment, so today we are going to propose a series of String Art for lovers of games like poker and that will serve to decorate the room where they usually meet to play these games, whether the living room, a separate room in the house, the garage or the typical man cave, so let’s take a look!
Obviously, the best way to decorate a poker room is with a string Art of poker cards, so a String Art that includes the best-known cards or symbols will look great, even for those who do not play poker, such as clubs (♣), diamonds (♦), hearts (♥), and spades (♠).
The predominant colors in these cards are red and black, so these are the two colors with which the String Art should be made, like we can see on the image above. On a dark wooden background, they look beautiful!
Casino Wheel String Art
The casino wheel is another of the predominant elements in a casino and it draws a lot of attention with its numbers, colors and movement, so another great idea to decorate a room inspired by a casino is with a String Art inspired by the wheel and that be able to transmit that movement, mixed with the neon lights that usually exist in casinos and the movement of people coming and going.
Welcome to Las Vegas
If there is a city that is the “Mecca” for people who like to gamble, this is undoubtedly Las Vegas, as it is the place where there are the most casinos and where the most famous are located. One of the best-known items is his well-known sign “Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas Nevada”, so we think it’s an extraordinary idea to make a String Art with this sign and decorate it with some light bulbs. Don’t you think it’s spectacular? I want to make it right now, the man cave will look amazing!
Casino Chips String Art
Another element that is an indisputable symbol of casinos are the casino chips, therefore, it may also be a good idea to carry out a String Art with casino chips in a realistic or slightly inspired way, like the one we see in the proposal made in the image above.
Dice String Art
In a game of chance, the dice cannot be missing, they are the ones that often decide if we win or lose and they are a symbol of chance. Go ahead and design a String Art with one or more falling dice, black and white, and it will look fantastic.
In short, all these ideas to decorate a room for the game are excellent, so you can get down to work right now. We do not want to finish telling you that if you want to find the Best Odds in Casino, in this link you have all the information. Play responsibly!
Living with muscle pain in different parts of the body affects our daily life, whether for work or for activities or hobbies that we enjoy, such as String Art or any other activity where a bodily activity is necessary and indispensable.
That is why it is necessary to look for solutions to improve these pains, usually in the neck, different parts of the back, arms, legs or hands. Many of them are the result of having a bad body posture while working or sleeping for years, while others are caused by falls or accidents. Whatever the case, especially if it is a postural pain that causes swelling or inflammation, we are going to introduce you to three products that will relieve pain in these areas so you can improve your quality of life and perform daily tasks with less pain.
Heating pads for neck pain
The first product we want to talk about is the microwave heating pad for neck pain relief. You probably already know about these pads, but just in case, we want to tell you more about them. They are made of quality cotton fabric with different prints that have Flax Seeds and lavender inside. Their main feature is that they can be put in the microwave for a time determined by the manufacturer and then placed on the shoulders. In this way, they relieve muscle pain in the neck, shoulders and trapezius, relaxing the area. You can wear it while reading, studying, writing or even working at the computer.
Gel Ice Packs for Elbow & Arms
The second product we want to talk about is the Gel Ice Packs for Elbow & Arms, which you can find in stores like feelrecovery, specialized in this type of products. The process is simple, since you only have to put the gel in the freezer for a while, put it inside the compression band so that the cold does not burn your skin and then put it on the area you have inflamed, which can be the upper arm or elbow. The cold will help reduce swelling and will make it less painful to play sports, write, cook or do any manual labor.
Knee Compression Sleeve
Another of the areas of the body that suffer most is the knee, since they support a large part of the body weight and suffer a lot in certain sports where there is rebound, such as running, soccer or basketball. To relieve knee pain, a good product is the Knee Compression Sleeve, as it helps reduce swelling caused by tendonitis and other common knee injuries, such as sprains, dislocations, bursitis, MCL Injury and many more that often affect many people, especially athletes.
By reducing pain throughout the neck and shoulder area, as well as in the arms, elbows and knee, you will see your quality of life improve and you can return to your hobbies. If your lumbar or other areas of your legs, even your feet, are sore, keep looking, as there are specific products for each part of your body.
String Arts and geometric tattoos are closely related, as geometry plays an important role in both. Today we want to show you the works of a special tattoo artist. Jeanmarco Cicolini is a geometric tattoo artist in Texas and his designs are really spectacular. We are sure that they will serve as a source of inspiration for your String Art or any decorative project you have in mind, so let’s take a look at them.
What do geometric tattoo mean?
The meaning of geometric tattoos can vary, since a triangle does not mean the same thing as a circle. While a triangle can mean balance or even the Holy Trinity, a circle can represent unity, completeness or the eternal return. However, in general, what is sought with a geometric design is harmony, perfection and symmetry, something that pleases our brain and sight, while being tremendously attractive and visual.
Geometric tattoo half sleeve
Let’s start with this wonderful half sleeve tattoo, because it is a good letter of introduction. Full sleeve or half sleeve tattoos are very popular nowadays, and a combination of different geometric designs with 3D effect and depth looks amazing, as we can see in the image above.
Geometric tattoo on the biceps
The bicep is also a part of the body where a geometric tattoo can look great. As we can see in the photo, a design of a geometric flower or a mandala, from whose center all the petals radiate, all done with the pointillism technique, results in a beautiful tattoo.
Geometric tattoo on the back
The central part of the back, below the neck, is an ideal area of the body for a circular geometric tattoo representing a kind of mandala. As we can see, again, the pointillism is a success in this type of designs. It looks great for both men and women, so don’t hesitate, it’s an excellent choice.
Geometric tattoo on the chest
What do you think about geometric tattoos on the chest? Both on the chest and on the shoulder area, reminiscent of tribal tattoos of initiation rituals, so it can also be an area of the body suitable for this type of tattoos, as they have a lot of meaning and tradition.
Geometric tattoo on the Leg
Just as sleeve tattoos are worn on the arms, sleeve or half sleeve tattoos on the leg are also popular. As on the arm, the idea is to combine several geometric designs, some represent stairs with volume, others are rhombuses, others are zigzags… if the tattoo artist is good, he will know how to complete well the whole leg.
Geometric tattoo on the leg and the foot
And what about the tattoos on the lower leg that run down the foot, around the instep area? They are very attractive, and even more so if it is a geometric design that represents something like a lattice or a or a honeycomb. We have fallen in love with this one.
Geometric tattoo on the sidehead
We finish with a slightly riskier proposal, as it is a tattoo on the side of the head. As you can see, it is to form a kind of geometric flower around the ear and the result is very impressive if you have shaved hair
Did you like these geometric tattoo ideas? We hope you liked them as much as we did and that they are a source of inspiration for future tattoos or even for String Art pieces.
