a reminder "that it’s okay to get weird every now and then"

Lisa Congdon shared this video on facebook today and because I can´t say it any better than Amelia Diamond who wrote the sweet article and showed the video, I´m quoting:

"Sometimes it takes a preschooler in a tutu to remind us all that it’s okay to get weird every now and then."

If you haven´t watched it yet, you have to, full screen! Promise!  :)

Medley of good things.... - part 3

a while back I was asked to make a tiered cake for the cute magazine Spoonful

Spoonful is a short and inspiring little publication which, in light of our insanely busy lives, can be finished by the end of a train ride. It's quick to consume, beautifully soft, & after reading will genuinely make you smile.

 The magazine can be ordered here


and because I had so much fun making her, I made another one for my dear friend

Enjoy the weekend!
