pom pom vines

Handmade tissue paper pom pom flowers and paper leaves from Once Wed. This reminds me of the time I made a giant pink pom pom, attached it to my head and called myself a flower on halloween : )

gone buggy!

Inspirational images from {1} design Shrine {2} the crazy rabbit

After many late nights watching the "crafters corner" on the shopping channel and searching for endless youtube demonstrations, I gave in and bought myself the cricut expression! It's a machine that can cut simple or complex shapes out of cardstock, paper, contact paper, vinyl, fabric, etc. Since I am a graphic designer, I didn't want to be limited to only the shapes that are included in cricut's cartridges. Luckily, there is a program called SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) that allows you to cut from .svg files - meaning, anything I can design in illustrator can be cut on my machine!

Stay tuned for some crafty creations!

kiddie style

The other day I had a nice stroll down South Granville and visited some of the shops. After dreaming of fancy kitchen goodies in Williams Sonoma, I stopped in at Pottery Barn Kids. I fell in love with so many of the bedroom accessories - is it bad if I wanted some of these for myself? : )
