I spent the weekend relaxing and hanging out with the family. It was a much needed break from the go-go-go pace of last week. We had an extra day to relax, no obligations and beautiful weather--so nice. And I don't think I cooked one meal the entire weekend [Thank you, Appah!] I even managed to make a few things that have been on my "to do" list for a long time--button + magnets. You gotta love the versatility of fabric covered buttons!
I painted some small clothespins and glued on fabric buttons [using bits of my favorite Japanese prints]. I also glued small magnets on the backs of some of the clothespins so they could stick to magnetic surfaces.
Some of these are gifts for friends, but I'll be making several sets for the shoppe. Speaking of the shoppe, the next update will be mid-June. For those who inquired, I'll be restocking the entire stationery collection 01 as well as adding a few new handmade goodies. I'm finding it a challenge to keep the shoppe stocked, but I'm trying my best to do so!
This week I'm going to be working on a special project [more details later] and making some last minute gifts. We'll be heading down to California in three days for a business trip/family vacation. Yes, I'm already dreaming about my favorite pizza and roasted crab! Yum!
