Crafts: Collage: Fisherman’s Abode

I still had a lot of Prima Marketing – French Riviera papers, cards and embellishments lying around, so I decided to make this fisherman’s abode! I imagine a fisherman living in this room, waking up early to go to sea.

All the images and papers are from the Prima Marketing – French Riviera collection. The embellishments are also by Prima (cloches and metal trinkets). The fishnet I made myself using twine and a tutorial I found on Pinterest.

Crafts: By The Sea Mini Album

Another workshop kit from ScrapAMoment, I really really love this one. The original had a red/white baker twine but I swapped it for a naturel twine. It was so much fun to make and really easy!

I made a video of the process which you can see after the jump, together with more pictures and which products I used.

Crafts: A Skilled Sailor

Today was a sad day: one of my favorite co-workers left our office. Involuntary, I might add. She really wanted to stay, but her contract was terminated due to budget costs. We made her a pinata filled with candy & presents. It was a lot of fun to watch her whack the thing to pieces!

I am writing this post because I discovered that she really loves boats, sailing & all kinds of ocean-related things! So I made her an anchor necklace & wrapped it up nicely. I read the quote “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor” once and it was really fitting for the situation.

Here’s a picture of the necklace and the packaging. I really hope she gets a great job somewhere else & that she will keep us updated about it!
