a diversion

thought I'd post something different today.
My dear friend is getting married in May, and I was happy to design and create her shower invitations - complete with matching envelope liners. She's going to Hawaii for her honeymoon (*envy*), so we're having a luau theme. Definitely something therapeutic and delighting about making and creating things... I think that's why I am always thinking of more projects to work on, despite having plenty to do already.

I even made a lei for hannah out of the leftover flower punch-outs.

Maybe if I get extra ambitious, and have lots of free time (haha), I'll try one of these:
di-vert: to give pleasure to especially by distracting the attention from what burdens or distresses

living in michigan

It's felt like a very long winter this year... So when it finally warmed up a bit last weekend, we were happy to go outside and do something more "spring-y" (though still in our winter coats). Was definitely refreshing and even soothing to be out.

Then of course, last night, it dropped another 4 inches... (see all that white stuff in the background...)

my poor flowers...

Oh well... they say if you don't like the weather in Michigan, just stay another day...
