my creative space 'for the love of washi tape'

Greetings all,
It's a short & sweet & sticky Creative Space today, as i'm so incredibly distracted (thanks for your warm & meaningful comments in my last post about my mummy, deeply appreciated) . . . & have to duck into Shop Handmade for a few hours today, so . . . just thought i'd share a little snap shot of what the children & i have been playing with - this is only part of my collection of Washi Tapes from Japan.  I seem to be missing a few of my favourite Japanese patterned ones, hmmmm, must raid the children's craft boxes while they're out!!
While i've bought some wholesale from Lark (MT brand), some on line from etsy + some locally from Kikki-K & Typo.  So much fun, you can write on them, they are a nice addition to packaging detail, which i know we crafty folk all love.
Stay tuned for tomorrow - i kick off the Handmade Living blog tour, if you're not already a follower, you won't want to miss this giveaway, it's going to be HUGE!!  I'm off to squeeze those oranges as my husband has allowed me to sew uninterupted & taken the children to school for me, ahhhhh . . . love Posie

Hmmm yes I seem to have developed quite an addiction to washi tape myself. Such lovely little circles of colour. They make a nice little decoration all piled in a basket in my hallway!

Washi tape is highly addictive!! Wrapping packages is so much fun - it is all in the details.
