Merry Monday 57


Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

I am so sorry I was so busy last week that I did not get to make as many posts as I was hoping. I did publish a remake of my giant paper flower tutorial which is great for making paper backdrops. I made a tutorial previously on the same item but I felt that my video and pictures could look better. The flower is also a simpler version. In addition, I posted this tutorial on how to create a himmeli geometric sculpture. I really liked the sculpture and now it has a spot in my craft room with my crepe paper succulents.

For this week, I really hope to publish my post on my blog’s growth from February to May. I also hope to create another crepe paper flower tutorial; I think anemones would be an easy one to try. I also have two cute party decoration tutorials that I am contributing to the Think Crafts blog. One is for a tissue paper tassel garland with flowers and the other is a fun ice cream cone garland. I don’t know when they will be posted, but I’ll be sure to link to it here.

What have you been up to this past week? What are your plans this week? If you’re linking up, leave me a comment with the number position of your links in this week’s link party. I’ll make sure to check it out and share!
