our very own tea ceremony

I got a few belated wedding gifts from friends this past month, and I thought I'd share since they are such wonderful gifts....First up this delicious tea set and of course, awesome tea.  I've always wanted a blossom tea set!  And those cute round cups with the flowers are insulated, so it doesn't get hot to the touch at all.  Form and function; it's a beautiful thing.

papercutting: Round 3

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I made a few different new year's cards...including these precious 10 pieces below. I wish I had the time and patience to make more of them, but alas, life gets in the way. I could however, share pictures with you! I do believe these cards came out rather nice this year...a good start to 2010.

I rearranged the background paper slightly on each card, and I gotta say, I had much fun making these :D

A belated happy new year! papercutting: Round 2

I am still in shock that it's 2010. Where does the time go? I finally uploaded some of my photos from last year (sorry for the laziness).  It's been a small tradition of mine to make 'new year's cards' (kinda like Christmas cards, but for the new year), and  I decided to make a few different cards to give myself variety and to try out my new gocco machine.  A little handcutting and some beautiful washi paper, and voila! Happy Year of the Tiger!

My favorite are the white ones on the red back.  The metallic silver paint came out sharp on the white background,
and I found some nice paper to go with it.  :D Which one's your favorite?
