friday creative

with the arrival of spring & summer, many of us will be hosting more social gatherings like spring brunches and summer bbqs. with friends and family visiting, it will be fun to have extra photos out to share and this is a fun, super fast and easy to change way to do it! supplies:
-a stack of your favorite photos (well, copies of your favorites would be best).
-a decorative bowl, tray, cake plate...something you love that can hold photos and a place to put it.

how to:
-it couldn't be easier, just place your photos in your decorative container and put in a location that you, your family and your guests can flip through (like your coffee table).
-easy and fun right?

happy friday!

friday creative

would you believe i'm still working on finding spots for things in our new place? sometimes i just stare at an object or spot and wait for the answer to come to me...and sometimes it does! like this little typewriter dilemma. i love vintage typewriters, so much that i have 4 of them, but they haven't found a spot. so i was super pleased to put 1 under my new shelves on top of some suitcases, with a photo!
supplies:
-vintage typewriter
-8x10 photo

-cardstock
-adhesive (like double-sided tape)
-2 wooden skewers to support photo

how to:
-if photo is a lightweight print, adhere cardstock to back.
-place photo in typewriter as desired.

-trim skewers if necessary and place behind photo to keep photo upright.

-do you love it as much as i do?! 1 typewriter down, 3 to find spots for!

happy friday!
