Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day - if you celebrated. :)
That's why I am a few hours later than I would have liked in publishing this, but I had to MAKE USE of my day and celebrate it with my family. (Sorry for the bad pun, but you know, that is what this is all about - making use of the small things!)
Today I'm excited to introduce my new YouTube series, "MAKE USE | MONDAYs". I talked about it here on the blog last week, and it's finally time to start! (One thing I want to note though - I need to work out the kinks - almost like taking out that first piece of pie, it isn't perfect, but once that first piece is pulled out of the way, the rest will be just fine - I keep thinking of it a little like that. ;)
Anyhoo, with this first episode, I am sharing with you a few ideas on how to use up some of your washi tape stash.
It seems like I could never get enough new rolls of washi a couple years back. Now, I have a bountiful supply, which is great, but....... whenever I go to use it, I think to myself "How on earth am I ever going to use this stuff up?!" I know it will come in handy on gifts and the such, but even when I am scrapping with it, it feels like I don't ever make a dent in a single roll.
Well, today hopefully, I'll give you a couple different ideas on how to use washi in new ways. I've put together a few samples on ideas on how to use washi, and a couple of layouts using the same colors and scraps of washi to create different end results.
So check out the video here and subscribe to my You Tube channel here so that you will get the latest when Make Use episodes get uploaded.
If you want to play along with MAKE USE Mondays, link up your creations here and show us how you made use of your washi tape stash. And make sure to also note in your blog post, what you did to Make Use of your life this week. For me, as I mention in the video, I decided that spending Mother's Day with my family was more important to me than making sure that this was launched at 9am this morning.
Sometimes we have to make choices like that and I'm so happy I did, as we had a lovely day at the beach as a family. I can't wait to see what you create and how you made use of your time recently.
Have a wonderful daY!
