An upcoming contest on Spoonflower is circus themed. I know there will be lots of absolutely brilliant designs and my plain little tessellation will probably fade next to what is sure to be absolute cuteness but I had fun putting together the design. You can see it on my Spoonflower profile by clicking designs.
Because stripe boxes are always popular, I put it on a 2x2 box. Hope you enjoy it. Click on the image for the full-sized version.
In other news, I love my new stapler. In a really big crafty geeky way. It's wonderful, a thing of beauty. I tore 3 sheets of paper into 16ths and made a 48 page mini scratch paper matchbook notebook with my stapler. It went through all the sheets and the card stock so easily. Now I have a bigger project in mind. I want to make myself a cookbook with your recipes. Yep. Do you have a favorite recipe that you wouldn't mind sharing with me? I'll do printable recipe sheets of some recipes but all of them will wind up in my personal cookbook which will be stapled together with my wonderful new stapler. If you have a recipe you'd like to share, I set up a special email account, recipes *at* donteatthepaste (dot) com
I'll be posting some specific projects using my new stapler soon. Because I love my new stapler and I'm making things like little matchbook notebooks with it.
