and then i left you a little surprise..


remember the kind of notes yangkyu leaves me? 

well, i leave him little notes too. i stuff them inside his lunch bag every once in a while. i thought i'd give it a little twist by doing a little diy cork stamp i saw over at erica's blog - caught on a whim - and decorate a bunch of cardstock paper that was the wrong kind of buy {ugh, i hate those}. i thought i could use nail polish instead of paint, but boy was i dead wrong. instead i used paint i used while making these alphabet letters. kinda like that metallic look. and i clearly need better tools. but thanks kitchen aid knife. lately you're getting us through pumpkin carving and diy's just fine. 

head on over here to find out how you can get some cork stamps of your own!

  3. Oh, I'm so glad you gave the cork stamp DIY a go! I love the bunting idea. It is so sweet of you to payback the favor and leave Yangkyu thoughtful notes too. A great way to let those we love know how much we care about them. :)

    P.S. I'm surprised the nail polish didn't work. It sounded like a great idea. Too bad. ;)

    1. i love this diy! so simple and sweet! ah the nail polish. maybe if they were a bit darker color? i don't know. they kinda mushed all around and didn't really make a shape!
