When we bought our house, it came with small pedestal sink in our bathroom. NO room for me to put anything. But I finally started looking around on Craigslit. I had an idea to use antique vanity or dresser and put a sink on top, but it took me a while to find the right size one since our bathroom is narrow. Or some of them were really expensive.
Then I found the one. Right look and size, and price! It was in Capitola, which is a bit far away, but for $150, it was worth 1 hr drive.
Here is before.
There it is… NO more folding table, but more room! 2 drawers on both sides work well also. Sooooo happy! This is only a start… I want to paint, change layout, etc, but for now, this will do.
For my friend in LA. Actually, she was my host mother when I first moved to the US as a foreign student. She took care of me like her own daughter… I miss her and Santa Monica! I would move back there any day if I have a chance.
So I just cut out a bunch of circles and embossed with different folders. But the hardest part was to make sure it would look like a cupcake in the end since I was just guessing how it would look like as I glue them from the bottom. Slightly different than what I originally designed, but I think it looks like a cupcake.
I got this tree embossing folder a while ago, but had not had a chance to use it, so I finally decided to use it! I also bought stamp ink long time ago, thinking I could use it to create vintage feel to a card, but never used it. So I tried it out on this card. I am pretty happy with how it looks!
For my friend’s son’s birthday. Well, he is actually my husband’s friend’s son, so I don’t really know what he is into… It is hard to make cards for people I don’t know well, especially kids. But I think I got an inspiration from pinterest.
My friend and her husband managed to buy a house last year and just had a house warming party after 1 year of remodeling. It is very hard to buy a house around here nowadays, so it is a great accomplishment! Their new kitchen looked amazing!
