paper snowflakes – make an indoor winter wonderland

Christmas is my very very favourite holiday, and one of my very very favourite things about this holiday is decorating. The lights and decorations (within tasteful reason) are a large part of what creates the magic of the season for me. Last year, @thatlaurachick asked me if I had any advice for hanging paper snowflakes, […]

paper bats

For the first time in over eight years, I’m living in an actual house that has an entrance onto the street, and windows that are easily visible from the street. This means that we might actually get trick-or-treaters this Halloween! It means that if I put decorations in our windows, people might actually see them! […]

dragon scale greeting cards

Last year it was a paper Fire Flower bouquet, for those who are feeling done with roses. This year I offer another Mario tribute, reimagined […]

embossed paper “beach ball” ornaments

Well this is a bit embarrassing. Last time I put a proper tutorial up on this blog, it was Halloween season. And now it’s the Christmas season, with a big huge lapse of DIY silence in between. I’m afraid that with my day job, commission work and additional Desert Bus for Hope responsibilities this year, […]
