i ♥ crafts

i've been feeling so inspired this spring & doing lots of crafting. here are some boxes i made, i can always use more boxes for my trinkets...

i would like to note that the lid of this box is a collage of paint, lace and the piece of art is by anahata katkin. i almost bought one of her paintings in hawaii but got a book of her art instead...i am in love with it! you can check out her stuff at http://anahata.typepad.com/my_weblog/

 i drilled some knobs on and the boxes tie shut with lace

every spring i plant new life, this spring i decided i will only plant lavender and lots of it. it loves the sun and i face west with a huge wall of windows so it makes sense and will smell lovely.
 and i made a family of owls for aya. i used cotton prints and linens. she loves them! i think babies love stuffies with big eyes
happy spring!

cherry blossoms

spring is finally here and i'm lucky enough to live in a neighbourhood where the streets are covered with cherry blossom trees...when i'm not at home crafting and taking care of aya we're usually out on one of our long walks...when i walk down the streets here i usually walk looking up, it is so beautiful it inspired me to make a short film, it's like a meditation tape but visuals instead, i'll be posting a link soon.
i love when the grass and streets turn pink with cherry petals...
 aya loves cherry blossoms too!
  out on one of our walks
jamie and i discovered a photo booth down the street from where we live so we'll be making family photo booth pictures a tradtion
oh yah, someone has started crawling!

enjoy the rest of spring!!!
