HI

12 Apr

Hi Mimomito. It’s been too long my friends.

Far too long. Been a terrible blogger. I am sorry for that.

Here’s a couple things high to low.

I was hoping to find somehting swell to make up for my absence but did not come up with anything spectacular.

I am keeping my eyes peeled though guys!

The location just says antique so I guess its from days of old town.

Rose and Ben’s Christmas Decor.

24 Dec

Here is me and Ben’s attempt at an Alexander Girard inspired christmas tree. After much stalling and frustratin’ myself over the right kinda paper, and the colors, buh, I decided that it isn’t exactly what I would have liked it to look like…but maybe next year we will refine! That’s a great thing about Christmas…it comes again next year. So I have come to comfort myself in saying that each year is another opportunity to make it better. That’s pretty optimistic right? YUP. YUP. That’s what I am trying to be about dear Mimomito. We shall see how long that lasts.

GIT’R’DONE: Alexander Girard’s paper girl garland

11 Dec

Paper+Dolls+Wall+Art+by+Alexander+Girard+for+Urban+OutfittersHere is an easy holiday garland you can make out of Girard’s popular paper girl design.

DSC_0047First get your image to the size you like and print it out on printer paper. Not too small – because it’ll be tough to cut.
I decided to go with 5 inches. Don’t worry if you get it a lil’ pixelated on the print-out –  iz just going to be used as a stencil.

DSC_0048Cut out the image, or slice out using an X-acto knife.

DSC_0055Trace the image onto the back of the paper of your choice. Wrapping paper, craft paper, whatever. Just make sure it’s a little bit taller than your tracing (in my case, approximately 7″) and as long as you want your garland to be, around 20-30″ unless your paper is so thick that it would be difficult to cut through.
