EXTRA CREDIT: Summer Dreams Have Luggage will Travel Giveaway

Aren’t these photos fantastic? My friend Izzy traveled the world for a year visiting over 24 countries and blogged about it. It was so inspiring. Just seeing these photos makes me want to pack my bags and explore. Izzy traveled with just a duffel bag and day pack but I’m more of a hotel and luggage girl.

ETCETERAS: Cork & Gold Glitter Coasters with Lifestyle Crafts

Cork & Gold Glitter Coasters with Lifestyles Crafts via homework | carolynshomework.com  For this month’s Lifestyle Crafts tutorial, I stepped away from a paper project and experimented with die cutting cork.

HOMEWORK ~ Reading: Washi Wonderful (and a giveaway)

Washi Wonderful Book Review via homework | carolynshomework.com  I’ve been thinking about this post for over a year and now finally I can share it with you. About a year and a half ago, the amazingly talented Jenny Doh contacted me about the possibility of being a contributor for her new book, Washi Wonderful. It was a fascinating process and I basically had to audition and submit a portfolio of projects so the editors could decide on who the contributors would be.
