DIY Envelope with Washi Tape

DIY Envelope

Today I'm sharing a DIY Envelope tutorial on how to fold an envelope from a piece of computer paper and fancy it up with Washi tape! My 4 year old daughter LOVES to make projects with paper. Crayons, markers, glue sticks, scissors ... she does it all! We spend lots of time folding envelopes and paper boxes.

So we fancied it up with some washi tape! (I watch for super cheap deals on Washi Tape … [Read more...]

I am tooootaly loving white right now. … [Read more...]

Spring Coloring Page Challenge

Spring Coloring Page

Today I'm sharing a fun Spring Coloring Page that Sophie and I created together as a creative challenge and race again the clock! Read on to see what the challenge was and my thoughts about creative field trips!  As humans we are basically creatures of habit. Agree? Whether it is eating the same breakfast every day (I ate Honey Bunches of Oats every single day for all of high school) or sitting in the same chair at the dinner table, or driving the same route to work everyday. We are pretty predictable. And that's not necessarily a bad thing unless you have a job that … [Read more...]
