I have LOTS to share today! Hope you have a few minutes.
First, I'm sharing a recent fun organizational tool that I picked up from, of all places, Harbor Freight Tools! My good friend Shanna Noel is the author of this idea. She found one in her local HF and the rest is history. There has actually been a shortage of these little beauties since scrappy ladies the world over started 'needing' them.
I got lucky and got hold of the store display model. It was slightly the worse for wear,but it's suiting my purposes.
I'm too lazy to bother with Spray Painting like Shanna did, but I did get out my collection of Washi Tape and went to town decorating the edges. Add some pretty supplies and I think it looks pretty great! AND it's functional!
Isn't this super fun!? And it holds a ton of stuff. If you do one, let me know so I can see what you came up with.
Now, I've been working on getting the DD done and here are two more days worth. I am so excited that I only have ONE more page to complete and then I can finish it and share it with my family! (I've been keeping it to myself until I'm all finished.) Well, mostly.
We met so many amazing Mexican people while we were there. The people there are warmer than any I've met anywhere else. My only regret is that I don't speak better Spanish.
You may recognize the washi tape frame in the photo below from a video I did a while back. I couldn't find it a while ago and now, I finally get to use it!
The students had a wonderful time in the new building! I can't tell you just how blessed our team was to be able to witness this first event first hand.
You can see how I'm keeping it simple and quick. Just adding a wee bit here and there but I really feel like the preparation I did ahead of time by creating the date inserts makes it so that simple works well because they provide so much texture and detail.
This cake was made by two young women in their late teens. I was so proud of them as they used what was on hand to be incredibly creative. It was the best lookin' cake I've ever seen and I can guarantee you that no cake I'll ever make will look as good as this one!
And finally, another little sneak to tide you over until Elle's Studio's Inspiration gallery goes live! I think you'll be liking what all the ladies have to share!
Have a fantastic weekend!
