happy friday!

enjoy your weekend. Last night we watched the snow fall while sitting inside a cozy pub; it was such a special London moment. On our walk home I was literally skipping down the street like a little five-year old trying to taste snow flakes on my tongue. Why wasn't everyone else doing the same thing?!? Joe was totally surprised by my reaction for obvious reasons but I couldn't help myself. Snow-fall is so magical, so pretty, so delicate...there's absolutely nothing like it. It felt like a dream.

I hope this weekend brings you some magic. Have a good one, guys!

This week's three rad links: • simple (and free) printable action sheets from creature comforts. we can all use a little extra motivation, right? • fries i won't feel guilty about eating - an awesome recipe for baked asparagus fries + dips from spoon fork bacon. • my friend matt nall shares one INCREDIBLE photo per day. this man has serious talent for capturing detail. do take a look.

happy friday!

Cheers to a FUN weekend!

I hope you enjoy this animated gif of Brighton Pier's "Crazy Mouse" ride. It's my first attempt at an animated file so I'm certainly ending the week feeling a bit accomplished. This is the tutorial I used for those of you who might be interested in creating your own with Photoshop.

Have a good one!

This week's three rad links...

• This thrift shopping post by The Glitter Guide featuring Rock Paper Vintage made me wanna get out there and shop, shop, shop. Good tips on how to do it well, too.

•Recycled always wins my heart. Never fancied pencils so much until these came along via Creature Comforts.

• In search of easy-to-make meals, here's a great video by Because I'm Addicted for an avocado, shrimp, and endive salad. If only all recipes were this entertaining.

{diy} will craft for moms

home-made mother's day cards!home-made mother's day cards! home-made mother's day cards! home-made mother's day cards!Since I couldn't be with the two moms that I love the most for Mother's Day (my mama and sister), I thought I'd send them something from the heart.

Taking inspiration from this DIY post by Creature Comforts, I decided to play with decorative masking tapes for the first time.  For the goods I went to Paper Chase - the craft store in London. It was love at first sight as I walked around the aisles imagining all of the fun to be had.

Once home I got straight to business taping, cutting, and pasting away. The project was super fast and easy and a great way to get my crafting fingers back to work.

With a hand-written note on the back, these little cards were a perfectly simple way to say "Happy Mother's Day" and of course, "I Love You".

Any other crafters out there make something for Mother's Day?
