New birdie stand

While at Hervey Bay for work, I managed to do some shopping and bought this cute picture frame for hanging birds from the art sisters' swap. Now I have to make a bird picture to go with the frame.

A 2-minute birthday card

Washi tape obsession

I love my washi tape which I have been "collecting" for a while now. Recently I bought this box at IKEA which turned out to be perfect for the washi rolls, the only problem is that I need one more box to fit all the tape I have, LOL.
