I have haven’t had a ton of time to make stuff so far this summer. I hate to multi-task and most days I choose to do something fun with my little one. But I have been stitching here and there. I made some embroidered linen bracelets. This is an updated version of bracelets I have made in the past. They are so much fun and always one of a kind. I listed them in my etsy shop if you’d like to have a look.
We had some friends over for brunch the other day. Eventually our conversation turned to the topic of glitter, so we got some out to play with. I think glitter is so pretty. We all had fun decorating shells, rocks, and other things. We did it all outside and used a lot of glitter! My friend Miwa helped to style these photos :)
I made some cards using botanical cutouts. I found images of botanical prints online, resized them, and then printed them onto colored cardstock. I then used scissors and an exacto knife to cut out the flowers. I did the same thing with the lettering. I used a free font called the only exception which you can download here. I printed the text onto cardstock and cut out the letters. Before printing make sure to choose the fliphorizontally printing option because you will be flipping the cutouts over before gluing. I used a spray adhesive to glue the flowers and text onto the front of the cards.
I thought this would be a tedious project, but these were a lot quicker to make than I expected. I ended up making quite a few plus a framed picture for my daughter’s room.
I made a lot of these spoons to give to family for Christmas. I found the idea on design mom. I thought it was great because it is something useful and I like the way they turned out. The wood burning tool was inexpensive and fun to use. I also made some hand-stitched linen napkins to go with them.
