Considering these may be the only two post I do this month, I think you will forgive me. If you saw the one picture of me that Brian took while we were camping and put it next to this picture you wouldn’t think they were the same person. In the other one I’m wearing a soggy jogging bra, some soggy, baggy jogging shorts, letting it all hang out (and IT ain’t pretty!) and swigging a beer. In this photo I’m pretending that occasionally I can get all girly girl.
……..just wanted to share a couple of things I’ve done lately, and some fun links.
teeny, tiny pouch! These are perfect for wrapping a handmade gift. Hable Construction offers this kind of gift wrapping. I’m working out a tutorial for these – it’s not that they are hard, but if you sew it right the cord comes out of the side through a neatly finished slit.
Papercut for Tiff of Childplay, inspired by her flickr set. The separate elements without any bridges between them made this harder than I thought it would be. And I’m still not sure I like the contrasting striped paper for the hot air balloons, otherwise I was happy with how it turned out.
And a different version of the “Tree of Life” papercuts I’ve done before. The creative list is ongoing, and I’ll update as I mark things off – when I’m back in a few weeks.
Just for fun: In honor of the boys starting school this morning I thought you might get a kick out of this. Crayon scented cologne spray, they also have Play Doh, Dirt, Glue, Graham Cracker, Grass, and Playground scents. In a quest to find a hip pencil case for Everett I came across this one. Thankfully it’s sold out, because I don’t think a 14 year old needs a $45 pencil case, but in a moment of weakness I might have felt I needed one. To hold my smencils! If you are in the market for some very cool vintage school supplies head over here.
“I’ll be back!” said in a very convincing Arnold Schwartzenegger voice.
