Happy July 4th :: Baby Fireworks

I’ll call them baby fireworks, but they’re actually confetti launchers. There are plenty of diy instructions to be found on internet. The one alteration I did was use an extra strip of hard cardboard inside and at the end of the toilet roll to make it sturdy enough for the balloon to wrap around. I think these are great alternative to fireworks for babies like mine who are 8 months!

Turntable Tuesday :: Homestyle Classic Rock-n-Roll

I like clean modern aesthetics in just about everything, but softness to a homestyle environment is essential too. Just as the birds and bees co-exist with hard manmade structures; textures and aromas can add warmth to a space.

What I Love About Letterpress :: Messy & Wonderful

What I love about letterpress.
Playing with paper-its colors and textures that come in direct contact with ink. The results are often surprising and even the mess ups are wonderful. They often times encourage your creative impulses. I think I’ll dedicate a few posts to the messy and wonderful!

Letterpress Summer Camp :: Risparmiate DIY Inviti

Save money on your special letterpress prints for a special event and come to a two day letterpress summer camp! By the way, I’m located in north Italy -- just a skip away from the wine hills. Letterpress by morning and sip outstanding Italian wine from the tons of wineries in our area. Sounds like my kind of camp.
