We were lucky to share a love of paper and packaging with the Tampa Creative Collective on February 26th. It was our largest group so far with 20 members and new friends. We geeked out on paper, learned how to incorporate paper into branding more, made envelopes and paper hearts. Thanks to Oh Hello Events for coordinating this fun evening!
Make your Valentine a heart card or garland with these easy and cute paper hearts. All you need is some pretty paper (origami paper is precut, easy to fold and comes in many beautiful patterns) and some even folds ( a bone folder can help). Watch the video here: Paper Heart Tutorial. Remember you can say I LOVE YOU all year round. Happy Valentine's Day!

We were lucky to host the Moonlight Garden Circle's Holiday Garden Party this year. It really kicked off the holiday season. We prepared a short program on three different and easy holiday centerpiece ideas:
Succulent winter wonderland - in a glass dish or baking pan, create a wee forest with mini trees, baby succlents and cute washi tape bunting.
Modern and simple - using star of Bethlehem and floating fresh cranberries
Unusual materials - with a vintage style can, cedar, amaryllis, phalaenopsis, and kale
So I missed World Post Day on October 9th, which is also my dad's birthday, I didn't forget this birthday though. Anyway, I am reminded of it because there is this great community of people who love sending postcards all over the world and it is called Postcrossing. You sign up and randomly get a pen pal. You can include some preferences such as country you would like to swap with. It really easy and fun. I have sent 25 so far and covered 121,600 miles. Everyone is fun and creative and the stamps they use are so neat to see. There is no cost, except to buy and send neat postcards and then someone randomly gets to send you fun postcards. Check it out and happy posting!
