oh masking tape. so simple. so pretty in all of your pastel loveliness. i bought some of this said loveliness whilst spending all of my holiday money in the moma nyc gift shop last year. what i had planned to 'tape' or 'decorate' or 'wrap' was not included in the decision factor and i was soon interrupted by the sweet whisperings of the pretty, oh so pretty tape. pretty wins over functionality everytime. the tape roll has been purely decoration in my studio...until last night! a good few hours watching glee re-runs was spent sticking and playing. pure joy. have made a few little cards that i'll be using for some love mail and tags. any excuse to whip out my beloved papersource stamp collection is also welcome. i've been pottering in the studio today, working out what will become part of my exhibition in august. lots of faux wood, vintage greeting cards and melmac will be making an appearance. i've even ordered some of the most fantastic wallpaper which will form the background of my installation. i will divulge more info as ideas develops and invites are sent out. the weather is a little hesitant today...i did a quick camera battery recharge before the rain clouds released but they seem to have held off. now the sun seems to have his hat on, hooray! this cooler weather makes for wonderful bike riding behaviour. took kit for a spin earlier today. as you may have noticed, this easter is a little quiet for me on the family front. with mum and dad in sf and my girlies all up to different things, i felt it necessary to have a relaxing weekend with no baking and no real time restraint. the fam are in the midst of organising a family reunion in hawaii in october so i really can't complain about a rather lonesome 3 day weekend, can i? i'm keen to go with a bikini in my suitcase so have been trying to behave myself. the humpty dumpty easter egg staring at me from the counter thinks otherwise. it's been a bit quiet in blogland which means you must all be having a rather lovely and indulgent weekend. look forward to hearing your stories. happy saturday.
