We had our friends over for brunch on Sunday, and this was a card for Jojo from Miss Isla & family. Excellent penmanship Miss Isla! Makes me think back to when I used to make birthday cards for relatives when I was a kid. I hope the girls will want to make things and be creative.
I’ve been drooling over this gorgeous book, Paper to Petal by Rebecca Thuss (former Style Director of Martha Stewart Weddings) and her husband photographer Patrick Farrell. I borrowed it from the library on a whim just because I had seen the book cover on Pinterest, and I can’t believe how detailed and intricate these flowers are … and all crafted by hand from paper. Each page is popping with colour and styled so well. (That’s why I’ve always loved MS Living and MS Weddings!) Paper porn ahead –
I don’t think I have the patience to actually even attempt to make these flowers but I just want to buy the book (sold out on Amazon right now) because it’s so lovely to flip through – even the instruction pages!
We got hit with yet more snow yesterday morning!?! … So here’s a colour fix from one of BK’s books, Pantone Colors. I’ve been quite tired lately and haven’t been able to stay up much after the girls have gone to bed. (Can’t even stay up for some Downton Abbey!) For now, I offer you some colour for our cold, cold winter.

The days may seem monotonous being on mat. leave with a toddler and infant at home, and being indoors most of the time due to the winter weather. Changing, feeding, rocking, napping, watching the same Dora episodes over and over again (!) But it’s ok. It won’t always be like this and things do change. They change and grow quickly, and we need to constantly adapt. For now, this is the stuff in our life, and this is the collage of the week.
