Hello! My name is Shannon Taylor. I'm a long-time writer and editor from Minnesota surprised to find myself on an island in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, three younger children (the oldest is attending college in Chicago), and two dogs.

Japanese Washi Tape

Have you heard of Japanese washi tape? It’s popped up on my radar a few times, but I didn’t focus on it until today when I read a tutorial by Sweet Paul on how to use washi tape to decorate a vase. I thought Hey, that’s really cool. My kids would love to get their hands on some washi tape. It seems similar to masking tape and can be used for gift-wrapping embellishments and an amazingly wide range of arts and crafts projects. Check out Tiny Prints to see some of the ways you can use washi tape. My favorite is the bunting.

Now the question is where can we find washi tape? The most popular online sources seem to be Washimatta on Etsy and Happy Tape. Have you seen any in real life? We end up at Michaels fairly often so I’ll check for some next time we’re there. I’ll let you know if I find (or order) some and how it works out!

So on to the weekend. My family is thankful that Grandpa Tony made it through a medical scare this week and will be moving out of the ICU. And then home soon, we hope. This afternoon we get to see Lexie and her fellow drama campers perform a play they wrote to cap their week of activities. The rest of the weekend is boot camp, a cocktail party just for grown-ups that will count as our first date in ages, and tackling the bunny. I have to learn how to knit on TWO sets of circular needles to make the little bugger. What have I gotten myself into?

Have a great weekend. See you back on Monday!
