Washi Tape Resource

Happy Saturday!  This is the start of the President's Day weekend and there are all sorts of sales to be found both online and in stores.  Have fun doing some bargain hunting if you are in the mood to shop!

It is also the start of a school break week here in New England.  Traditionally, this is a week to take a ski or beach vacation.  This year, with little to no snow, the need for a warm weather trip is less pressing (it was 53 degrees yesterday!).

As you may have guessed from yesterday's post I needed a bit of a break to try to sort some things out.  The pillow in the photo was in one of the trend display areas at CreativeWorld.  The sentiment expressed the way I was feeling perfectly! 

We saw lots of washi tape being used at the various booths at CreativeWorld.  I think I first wrote about washi tape (Japanese paper tape) back in 2010 after a trip to see our son in San Francisco (that post is HERE). My friends who went to CHA said it was also extremely popular at the show.

I was searching around a bit for some more background information and I found an incredibly thorough blog post that will give you tons of information and inspiration for using washi tape.  Rather than reinvent the wheel, I will give you a link to MelStampz for a fabulous washi tape roundup!

Please be sure to leave her a comment to say thanks for the wonderful resource she has provided (you can tell her I sent you!).

I hope you have a great weekend and, if you have vacation plans for next week, have a wonderful time!

  5. I went over to the other blog and was blown away....but where do you BUY Washi tape, where it isn't expensive???? :) Sandy

  6. Hi Diane! Thank you ever so much for the link love & all the thoughtful comments via you and your lovely readers. You made my week in a huge way and I'm so happy to have found your blog. You have so many stunning things here! :-D mel

  7. Hi Diane! I've been out of the loop since January running around helping my elderly uncle get his benefits, etc., so I haven't had a chance to look around. I'm glad I came over to see you today because I'm crazy about washi tape, but it can get pretty expensive. I've seen a couple of tutorials on making your own, but there's nothing like the real gthing. Thanks for Melz link I'll go over and snoop around there too.
