Knowing you’re going to be in a major metropolitan newspaper, and then actually seeing your giant mug on the cover of said newspaper, are two totally different things. I’ll admit, I woke up unnaturally early Saturday morning to grab our copy of the Dallas Morning News off the porch (Yes, we subscribe to the newspaper. No, I’m not 65.)
We knew the feature was scheduled to run, but we had no idea it’d be the lead story. Or that a giant picture of me would be plastered
unretouched on the cover! Taking a photo of me wasn’t even in the plans…the photographer sprung it on me at the end of our shoot. Surely if I’d known, I’d have washed my hair, right?! Well, maybe.
The story was: Dallas’ Next Crafting Obsession: Washi Tape, and they asked me to create five simple projects with it. Since I’m fairly obsessed with the cute tapes, I was more than happy to oblige!
A big thanks to the awesome reporter, Jamie Knodel, and photographer, Vernon Bryant, for the fun experience. And huge thanks for all the sweet words and support from you guys!!! You can read my interview with Jamie on Dallas News.
So spill it…are you crazy about Washi? What projects have you created with it? I’d love to see and be inspired!! How about an impromptu link party so we can all share our inspiration?!!
