Snow Day

A few weeks ago we took a day trip to a nearby mountaintop. To muted skies and snowfall, and violent winds that whip in and out of an evergreen wood. All of us girls had cameras along for the journey; the photos above were taken by me, my mother and my brother's girlfriend Samantha. I gave them special treatment in Photoshop for a little extra winter wonder.

Happy New Year

I hope you had a wonderful time ringing in the new year! For New Year's Eve I made three simple projects that can easily be adapted for other celebrations. Glittered Banner: For the banner I printed text onto sturdy paper and cut out. Bold, sans-serif fonts work best for this, the font used here is called Market Deco. When cutting out the letters, be sure to leave small tabs at the top for hanging. I gave each letter a base coat of silver paint, brushed with white glue and applied glitter. When dry I folded the tab over embroidery floss and glued in place. For additional projects, please click to keep reading.
