We're Jammin'

My dad came to visit me for a few days, the first family member to visit me since my college graduation. I had a blast hanging out with him and sharing our interests. My dad and I are both into music, but he has more experience and education in playing a musical instrument (whereas I only know how to sing by ear). So I'm glad I was able to help him fulfill his dream of impromptu street performing. I also helped him upload videos of his performances to Youtube!

My dad is awesome.

Winter Holiday Garland

Inspired by this, I decided to make my own garland for the office holiday potluck using holiday themed scrapbook paper, cut into triangles, and a sewing machine. What fun!

Some other fun garlands:
Napkin flowers, felt balls, and poms
More poms and felt balls
Watercolor paper chain
Felt twists
Scandanavian Inspired Stars
