Time to Craft!

| Everyday Crafts, Me Time

I am so so sorry for my long absence of late, but I’m in the final days crafting for my book and even a spare hour to blog is impossible to carve out.

So…I promise I will be back in a few weeks with more great posts, and even some sneak peaks into the world of producing a 100+ project craft book!

Don’t give up on me…great things are on the horizon!

(Here is a photograph of my son Oliver “helping Mommy work.” His understanding of work is going to be very hard to clarify.)

Confetti Love!

If you don’t love confetti, you don’t have a soul. Ok, maybe it’s a mess to clean up, but even the cheesiest of metallic confetti has a glittery, sparkly, ephemeral impact. Check out these surprising ways to use it….

Confetti-wedding-invitePut a packet of confetti in your wedding invitation. I’m beyond in love with this one that I found on Pinterest!


Confetti-throwerHow awesome are these tube confetti throwers from Oh Happy Day? Love love love…

I still love the confetti gift wrap that I blogged about two years ago!

Love the look but hate the mess? Try a stamped table runner (you can use a pencil eraser, a wine cork, or a sliced carrot) that gives the illusions of confetti like this one from Love Luxe.
