Ce que les infirmières font dans un hôpital Makerspace – Artisanat de bricolage



“Je savais que les infirmières faisaient parce que je l’ai fait moi-même” – Haies de roses

Rose Hedges de UnityPoint Health à Cedar Rapids, Iowa et Anna Young de Maker Health se joignent à moi pour parler de la façon dont un makerspace au premier étage d’un hôpital a créé des opportunités pour les infirmières et autres membres du personnel médical de prototyper des solutions aux problèmes qu’ils rencontrent dans leur travail . Rose est infirmière et gère le makerspace appelé generate Lab. Elle organise également la première Gene Lab Maker Faire au makerspace de l’hôpital le 17 mai. Anna et Rose donnent un aperçu d’un processus d’innovation ascendant très différent du fonctionnement normal du système médical.



Rose: Nous avons un espace physique à l’intérieur de l’hôpital où n’importe qui dans l’hôpital ou les patients peuvent venir et qu’il s’agisse de prototyper une idée ou peut-être viennent-ils simplement avec un problème, nous sommes capables de le faire en temps réel. La meilleure partie à ce sujet – Anna a mentionné la culture – nous avons créé une culture ici…

Bubble Drawing Bookmark – DIY Crafts



As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This post may contain affiliate links. See our full disclosure here.

One of my favorite things to do is make my own bookmarks. I’ve made a variety of DIY bookmarks using stickers, acrylic paint, paint pens and more. I’ve even made my own pressed flower bookmarks. For this bubble drawing bookmark I used watercolors but you could create the same pattern using any medium you like. 

My favorite part about drawing bubbles is that they don’t have to be perfect. Don’t worry about your bubbles being perfect circles. In fact, the bubble pattern is more interesting as you vary the size and shape of the bubble drawings. 

Bubble Drawing Bookmark

How to Make a Bubble Drawing Bookmark

Step 1. Set-up your work area. I like to make sure I have a paper towel, clean water cup and a clean working space for my project.

Step 2. Start by painting or drawing just the outline of the bubble drawing. This make it easier to control the size and shape.

Color Wheel Painting Technique – DIY Crafts



As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This post may contain affiliate links. See our full disclosure here.

Typically a color wheel is a visual guide for artists and designers to help them understand color combinations and provide guidance for creating designs that have good color composition. Taking my love of color and the color wheel as inspiration, I’ve created my favorite painting technique that I call color wheel painting.

This is a fun and easy painting technique that doesn’t take long to master and can be done by anyone. The best part is that it’s very quick and in just minutes you can achieve the final result.

Color Wheel Painting

Favorite Paint for Color Wheel Painting

Acrylic paint is the best medium for this painting technique but gouache could work as well. The key is to look for thick acrylic paint. You don’t want anything too watery or it could be difficult to blend. Here are a few of my favorite brands for this technique:
