I made a calendar.

The 8th is sparkly 'cause that's my birthday.

have i told you lately

I finally painted that little Valentine papercut I made. It didn't work out so well with acrylic - I really have to get myself a can of spray paint. 

Here's something new I've been working on. I've been bursting with ideas but haven't been able to afford blades... I do really like this though. I think I'll do other variations and polish this one up a bit.

Getting ready to color:
I cut out some little flags for the new bunting sets we put up in the shoppe:

All while listening to some vintage McFly on my trusty old mp3 player, still going strong despite some buttons having moods. 

P.S. Did you get to see the Valentine freebie roundup on the Pink Teacup blog? If not, you have 7 cute things to print out! Go on

in the bright lights

One night at Seed's house, we did a cover of White Nights, and Lois and Clarissa filmed us. They're all amazing.

Give us a listen!

we're going to a very distant land

Sam's turning 13 and we made some cupcakes to celebrate.

 Finn is my very favorite. He was fun to make. 

This is Sam. And Sam.

They share the same birthday. So we made them both cakes.

Colorful cakes. 

Happy birthday, Sam. And Sam. I'm jealous of your birthday food. 

letters of thread

I really enjoy embroidering while watching TV. I've been watching Sherlock and devising theories about the finale episode, and here is what my hands were up to. 

I can't get over how beautiful they look, on the linen, in the light.

rope braid bracelet! // mini DIY

I made myself a bracelet today and I decided to take photos while I was at it:


(I just had a terrific idea: wrapping the middle of the felt part with neon thread! I'm going to try that out tomorrow.)
