My spring/summer adventure!

It's been awhile since I last posted. That's because I'm busy packing and getting ready to make my way to Grand Bend. My husband is opening up a food truck! So exciting but also nervous until everything is up and running more smoothly. I'm really happy for him though 'cuz he finally gets to do something that he's passionate about. I hope all goes well in this venture.

It's also going to be a huge change. We're going to be living from a trailer! Being the pack rat that I am, packing for the trailer is not easy. I've still yet to cut the clothing I've stacked up high in half. I'm still in the process of packing some art/craft materials as I'm also going to be running some camps and hopefully some yoga classes too. I'm really excited and nervous at the same time. 

We'll see where this adventure takes us. I'm sure we're going to be outdoors lots for the next 5 months so I better pack some sidewalk chalk for my little one. It looks like my little blog will be taking a little vacation too. I'm thinking of getting a little 5 year paper journal to jot down my daily thoughts old school style :)

I told my daughter that she can choose 5 toys to pack and she told me, "Scissors, glue, crayons." Sounds like she's well on her way to being fully fledged artist/crafter :D 

See you all in October (or earlier if I can sneak some internet time).

Sushi Birthday

Yet another birthday card-that's the 4th one this week! I promise to give it a rest after this one :)
I'm celebrating my friend's birthday with an all-you-can-eat sushi dinner tonight. 
I thought this card would be fitting.

This is probably the biggest quilled object I've made. It took awhile to make it but it was well worth it. I love seeing cute things (especially if I made them :)) I'm so glad I tried it out. I also finally used some handmade Japanese paper as it seems to go with the whole theme.

Looking forward tonight :)
Happy Weekend Everyone!

Snail Mail

Late wishing someone a happy birthday? How about some snail mail birthday card? :) I'm giving this to a friend I'm meeting today who also had her birthday in March. 

Inside the card says, 
"...but I made it! Happy Belated Birthday!"

I'm really happy with how the chevron washi tape goes with the snail :) 
and such a cute a little guy <3

Another Birthday Card

Like I said, there seems to be a lot of birthdays around this time. I made this for my aunt when she celebrated her birthday in March.

I finally got to use some uninked stamps. Yay!

Also, a very happy birthday to the City Crafter Challenge blog. They have a fun blog hop with amazing card inspirations there. I'd like to link my card up to this week's challenge but I apologize for the cropped card as when I took it, I didn't know I'd be linking it up to any challenges. Hope it's still eligible!

Birthday Card

There seems to be lots of birthdays around this time. This is a card I made for a friend.

Since I haven't been cardmaking as much as I would like for the last while, all the items on this card have been hoarded for at least 6 months+....washi tape, uninked stamp, ribbon, and the designer paper. I'm really happy about finally figuring out a use for the ribbon...it seems to add a softness to contrast the chevron washi tape and designer paper flower.
