Documenting life
It’s Week in the Life (read more about it here) and I am full on documenting my life. I notice how fun it is, but also how beautiful my life is. How much I get out of each day: sounds, smells, impressions, communicating, creating, walking, eating, interacting, sharing, documenting, reading, watching, living. This blog, while taking up a lot of time, is a big part of helping me feel good about my life. Writing and sharing stuff I see and make helps me notice them better, while also providing me with time to reflect on and create ways to remember them by. I love that!

Washi tape

I have been doing this for 8 years (!), so this week it’s Blogoversary week! We’re celebrating with a giveaway of washi tape (your choice in the sponsor shop). I’ve written about washi tape before, but today I thought I’d share my latest washi tape ideas!

The first one is a washi tape holder idea. I’m using a holder intended for keeping paper towels (also called kitchen roll/paper) on the table. Simple storage idea, but I think it looks so nice with all those tape rolls! It’s easy to remove tape from it, view what colours and patterns I’ve got and to take out a roll when I need it elsewhere. I might spray paint the holder this summer, when I can do it outside.

The second one is totally inspired by Daisy Yellow’s teeny tiny container!

From all the inspiration I view daily online I love it when finally I see something (often small and quick) that spark something in me. It’s the Irresistible Inspiration at work. It’s when you can’t wait, you just have to do it, and then you actually do it. I loved the teeny tiny container idea, and because I had a tin container close by and a need for a decorated one I finished it at once. I’m going to keep leftover embroidery floss in it, because if I put it in with the other embroidery things its either lost or tangled.
