Little Miss is heading to Brownie camp tonight, she needed to take some home baking....apparently Chocolate 'Brownie' is the perfect treat. Mum's made sure her Tupperware is labelled with pretty tape.
Not going anywhere anytime soon, but every year, I like to prep a few crafty bits to take on the go. One of them would be my beloved washi. I’ll take general travel-themed ones and if there’s somewhere specific we’re going, I’ll add washi for there, too (because one way or another -whether I’ve been to this place or not - I will have it in my stash #truestory). .
Leg day had me feeling like a baby giraffe! 😂
In this set we do 15 reps of a move with weights, then immediately do a similar move with sliders to burn that muscle group out. Fire! 🔥 lol It really works those leg muscles!!! Some days it’s not easy or super fun, but it’s always worth it. I know that every rep, every workout gets me closer to my goals. Every day I get stronger and healthier, and that makes me happy! 😃

It’s been quite a few stressful days! Yesterday my laptop wouldn’t start up because I closed it during an os update and I only fixed the bug this morning and then I had a quiz that I failed and finally an evening midterm 😞😞 it can only get better right?? .
Also I used the rest of my planner stickers from @theletterlingo in this spread!! Super cute 💛
#TBT Reminiscing about this very special experience in Miyagi Prefecture earlier this year! Sitting in the tatami room of her home, I was introduced to Fumiko Sato and learned about Shiroishi kamiko takuhon-shi. Sato-san’s late husband developed this printing technique where the washi is first treated with konnyaku glue to strengthen the paper, and then a design is rubbed and inked. A brush made of horse hair is meticulously pounded on the paper to emboss the design from the carved wooden stencil sitting beneath it. The entire process to prep and print this single sheet of washi took nearly 20 minutes from start to finish. Watching Sato-san’s deft movements was literally a masterclass in artistry and craftsmanship!
