Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!
I wanted to say a special thank you to all the veterans out there that have fought and fight every day to make this country a safe and wonderful place to live. Thank you dad for serving in the Navy years ago and for telling me amazing stories of heroes in action. I am forever amazed by their courage.
Moving on....to randomness that has me smiling this Monday.
First on my list - washi tape. I know it has been all the rage for a while, but I just hopped on the bandwagon and will most likely never hop off.
The ones on the left are from The Washi Shop on Etsy and the 2 on the right are from Michael's. Michael's now has a whole wall of it made by the Recollections brand (although they call it craft tape). There are so many great patterns and colors to choose from...makes me smile.
I am already putting it to great use :)
Next up, I got my craft of over the weekend and made some vintage ornaments inspired by the plaques and boxes that my guru Cassie made last week :)
Poor little vintage Golden Book. Didn't even see my scissors coming ;)
These were a huge hit with my friends when I posted a pic on Instagram (I'm arichardson79 on Instagram if you want to follow along) so I am considering this batch "SOLD." This is not a bad problem to have. I ordered another copy of the book on Etsy and bought the rest of the stock of paper machier ornaments at Michael's so I will be making a second batch soon. My sis-in-law and I will be doing a craft fair together in December, so hopefully I will have some to bring with me there :)
Last but CERTAINLY not least - I got some HAPPY HaPpY mail on Saturday.
For some reason, I was having a hard time finding this HaPpY magazine here in SoCal. Why is it so happy you ask?? I am very proud of my sweet friend Andi of Natalily Designs and Jane of All Crafts!! Take a look at the awesomeness!!! (btw - I demanded the autograph)
Um. yeah. Better Homes and Gardens. Andi. She MADE those awesome Christmas bulb ornaments.
-Andi Morris, Superstar!
There's even a tutorial for all of us DIY'ers :)
Seriously, I could not be more proud of my sweet friend. Such awesomeness, huh!!? YAY Andi!
So, that's it, my randomness for ya :)
I hope you all have a fabulous week!!
