i finally got my hands on martha stewart's encyclopedia of crafts with the intention of making at least one thing out of the book. while there were many pretty things to make, most required a trip to the craft store and i was too impatient.
i landed on the letter p -- paper cutting and punching, with instructions on silhouettes. they aren't really hard to make and i had all the supplies. i ended up doing silhouettes of my little one to hang on her wall. i think they turned out kind of cute. she doesn't have a lot of hair and has an adorable double chin (only adorable on a 9 month old) so this rendition of her makes me laugh.
I am a design enthusiast + wannabe crafter + mom who loves to get packages in the mail, prefers brunch to breakfast, wishes she knew how to play the piano, loves the smell of rain, and always has room for dessert.
olive & a is my little catalog of things I find beautiful, fun, creative, and inspiring. Thanks for visiting and please say hello!
