Anyone else feeling the February blues? It's even Mardi Gras today and I can't seem to snap out of my funk. Since Valentine's Day is this week too, I am going to post some pretty pictures to try and feel better.
Design*Sponge office windows. Hearts + watertower.
One of my favorite design blogs (ever, in the world, of all time, etc.), Design*Sponge, hosted a Valentine's crafting breakfast in their Greenpoint office a couple weeks ago and I was lucky enough to go. It was terrific, with beautiful materials, really nice people, and good food (sorry about eating all the cinnamon roll thingys, guys). The D*S team really couldn't have been more gracious and fun. My only complaint was that it was over way too soon.
These pictures are from a couple posts I recently published on Two Blues Roses. Valentine cookies I made for a local event and a faux bois decoupaged valentine (oh la la!) that I made for a certain someone.
Nom, nom, nom, wood you be mine?
It's hard to feel bad looking at this smile:
He was very specific about his color choices. "My two favorite colors, please, turquoise and red." Felt oddly proud.
Unless of course you're the one paying for the orthodontia. But even then. Lowell has a severe underbite which they start correcting at this age, even though all his permanent teeth aren't in. He is absolutely thrilled to have them, even though they have been hurting a little, because now he has something in common with his older cousins. It's weird how different they make him look. Every time he smiles at me I feel a little jolt of panic. For one second I think he is older than he is and then remember, no, not a tween yet. I got a little more time. Phew.
