It’s a Wrap!

Wrapping an oversized baby shower present when you forgot to run to Paper Source in time and don’t know the gender? Think quilt. This was two full size sheets taped together, seaming in the center. Cover the seam with a flat bottom, flat bow. Flat knots take less ribbon. Tie with a vintage post card you happened to have picked up at a Paris flea market and you’re good to go….

What? You don’t stock vintage post cards from Paris? Now, I’m totally going to judge you. Kidding.

This is for my friend Jen’s shower tomorrow. Our mutual friend, The Future Mrs. Darcy, is in town with her new baby, Fiona. Some Honey Badger humor inspired me to write her a new nursery rhyme last night. It was hysterical to me, but got me shushed by my husband who was trying to sleep.  Feel free to sing it your children.

Honey Badger is my friend, is my friend, is my friend.

Honey Badger is my friend until he eats my face.

Now I have a real problem, real problem, real problem.

Now I have a real problem cause I ain’t got no face.

Speaking of crafts: I went to NYC to see the Martha Stewart show tape. Here are some images I shot while there.

Brandy - Thanks, Lisa. You should request some tickets. They are free, but require a bit of flexibility on weekdays.
