Happy Easter, crafty friends!

Life and work and this pregnancy took over my life lately so that explains the long hiatus from this blog. My crafting life also took a back seat again although once in a while, I got to sneak in a few projects.

Here are a few of those…

|LEFT| I found some scrap pieces of wood at my parents’ garage, assembled it and painted it with gold stripes to make this planter. |RIGHT| I breathed new life to an old picture frame by covering it with some washi tape. Then, instead of a photo, I placed the papercut¬† made.¬†

I made some hanging planters using thin pieces of string. I painted the pots in bright, happy colors and planted it with succulents. These now hang at the window in front of my desk.

Little felt clouds I handstitched for our Little Kulet’s crib mobile.

Instead of using typical curtains, blinds or shades for the window in front of my desk, I made shades with pockets to serve as extra storage for knick knacks, small books and other little stuff. I figured it’s also a pretty way of displaying postcards and other interesting prints.

During walks with my husband and our dogs around the neighborhood, I pick wildflowers which I either press or dry.

Lately, I also enjoy styling product shoots using materials lying around the house.

Hopefully in the next few weeks, I get to blog more regularly and share with you more crafty projects and how-tos.
