Woohoo! I have a working computer! I thought I might take a quick moment to catch you up on this past busy, busy weekend.
I woke up bright and early last Friday (3:30am!) to share a few projects on the local NBC 7/39 San Diego Morning Show. I was honored to be asked to guest appear and it was great fun. While I wait on the my little two minute video clip from the studios, here are a few behind the scenes photos of the local news station.
My birthday was on Saturday and I was thrilled to spend the day with friends in northern San Diego wine country. The hubby had one last surprise up his sleeve before the weekend was over – tickets to the Eagles (my very favorite) Sunday night. I couldn’t ask for a better birthday weekend!
A bit more on the expo (which was Sunday – told you it was a crazy weekend!) and a series of DIY fabric projects just around the corner… now that I have my computer back I can finally sort through these photos and put some fun posts together!
I’ve had such a wonderful weekend – I’ve shared my birthday with great friends on an all-day adventure (a surprise from the husband), had a guest appearance on the San Diego 7/39 NBC Morning Show and just finished a day at the Stylish Spaces Design Expo where I shared many a new project (10 in total!).
But sadly I lost my computer to an ill-fated drop and so while I type out this message on my iPhone I’m lamenting my blog which has received zero updates in four days. My computer (if all goes well!) returns tomorrow and I look forward to sharing many pictures and projects with you!
I love the look of paper flags draped around a room, outside from tree to tree, or even as the backdrop to a dinner or dessert buffet. There’s something sweet and festive about the idea and it creates instant party ambiance.
Jump over to this quick tutorial for detailed step-by-step directions from Project Wedding to create your own.
Tissue paper cut into rectangles, glue and string are the only materials needed for this quick version (perfect for a Memorial Day picnic!).
Wrap your newly created bunting around an empty gift wrapping paper roll or paper towel roll for easy storage and transportation. This would be perfect for a birthday, shower or even wedding (image strings of soft whites and creams hung around an outdoor venue). Can’t wait to try it out.
