I loved our discussion yesterday - you all rock for taking the time to write down more than a "I love your photos" comment :) And to those of you who really said you liked my card photos, thank you sweeties! I'm still really on the fence about which direction I want to take, so until I "find myself", you might see some funky experimentation going on...
I went a little artsy with today's project :)
I taught a card class on the weekend, and I needed a gift to present my hostess (never show up empty handed, right?) I could have made her a card set, but I just did for her birthday the previous week. So this is what I came up with:
A set of tiny papers, decorated with images from hero arts' "my happy" in light grey and pink.
Along with a set of dainty little pink envelopes in a mix of patterns...
They fit inside, see?
Package them up in a glassine bag, top it all with a cute tag, and you're done! A sweet crafty gift. And for the pictures, get a beautiful little model to hold it up. I want to kiss that dainty pinky she stuck in the air!
And now, TMKS. If you read my facebook yesterday, you'll already know part of this story...Yesterday morning, my not-even-2-year-old Maia refused to wear a shirt. Socks? yes. Pants? ok. Shirt? Nooooooooo sssssshirt!!!!!!! (a lot of yelling.) Ok, so it's not worth a fight. I figured, she'll ask for a shirt when she's cold, or she'll forget that this was a big deal to her in a bit and I'll sneak one on her while we're talking about Backyardigans :) But this kid went shirtless for, like, almost 4 hours, and despite pleas from her brother, who was very bothered to see her walking around looking like a male-trucker... And then she started saying she was cold. But still refused a shirt. and refused. and refused. Until Thomas had the amazing thought to offer her something else: a sweater. She smiled and put it on without a fuss. She was given an out, and was able to save-face. Amazing.
