Playing with Washi!

I love washi tape! I know, I know... I've given in to the washi tape trend.  You can't help to fall in love after you've seen all the things you can do with it!

I always carry a little notebook in my purse so that I can write notes wherever I am. While at Barnes and Noble I realized mine had been used up and found these cute little notebooks!


When I picked them up I thought that they were just begging for some washi tape to spice them up! So that night I started playing and here is what I ended up with!


The washi tape wraps around to the back cover too with the diagonal stripes.  I think it turned out pretty cute and the neon colors make me smile when I pull it out of my purse!

Here are a few other ways to use washi tape!



Washi is a great way to make to easily add a pop of color to cards and it also makes a great embellishment on scrapbook pages!

I am headed to Detroit tomorrow for the Arts, Beats, and Eats festival and to learn how to stand up paddle board this weekend!

Have a great weekend!

Hey everyone!

So sorry I have been absent the past two weeks! I had jaw surgery and have been recovering and relaxing! I have not been up to too much except watching tv and reading books!

I did bake up a special treat a week ago though! A friend contacted me wanting to order some cake pops for her friends baby shower and I was so touched she thought of me! She asked for Bengals themed cake pops! I decided to make a vanilla bean cake with cream cheese frosting cake pop and I tinted the cake and frosting orange to go along with the Bengals theme!




I thought they turned out great! These would be perfect for football season! ;)

I plan on baking and trying some new things tomorrow.  Hopefully I will have some pretty goodies to share with you afterwards!

Hope you all are having a great week!
