Last night we watched the snow fall while sitting inside a cozy pub; it was such a special London moment. On our walk home I was literally skipping down the street like a little five-year old trying to taste snow flakes on my tongue. Why wasn’t everyone else doing the same thing?!? Joe was totally surprised by my reaction for obvious reasons but I couldn’t help myself. Snow-fall is so magical, so pretty, so delicate…there’s absolutely nothing like it. It felt like a dream.
I hope this weekend brings you some magic. Have a good one, guys!
I hope you enjoy this animated gif of Brighton Pier’s “Crazy Mouse” ride. It’s my first attempt at an animated file so I’m certainly ending the week feeling a bit accomplished. This is the tutorial I used for those of you who might be interested in creating your own with Photoshop.
Since I couldn’t be with the two moms that I love the most for Mother’s Day (my mama and sister), I thought I’d send them something from the heart.
Taking inspiration from this DIY post by Creature Comforts, I decided to play with decorative masking tapes for the first time. For the goods I went to Paper Chase – the craft store in London. It was love at first sight as I walked around the aisles imagining all of the fun to be had.
Once home I got straight to business taping, cutting, and pasting away. The project was super fast and easy and a great way to get my crafting fingers back to work.
With a hand-written note on the back, these little cards were a perfectly simple way to say “Happy Mother’s Day” and of course, “I Love You”.
Any other crafters out there make something for Mother’s Day?
