in pictures . meanwhile, in boxland

20 Jul

this morning i set my camera on the tripod in the living room and pressed the shutter on occasion. this was our day :)

li and i spent some time this week building some box houses (a la ambrosia girl as pinned here). they are a big hit around these parts and i think they’re here to stay :)

happy weekend!

    so cute! where did you find that coloured tape?

  2. michelle July 21 2012 at 12:00 am #

    so, so awesome! where did you get the coloured tape from?

  3. andrea July 21 2012 at 12:08 am #

    thanks girls! the tape is from michael’s (colours) and dollarama (white). the michael’s tape is actually a better value — as you can see, the white ran out before we finished all of the seams…

  7. andrea July 21 2012 at 9:22 am #

    Andrea,
    I have been following your blog for a while now and have seen that WONDERFUL “xoxoxo” pillow pop up in a few of your posts. Mind sharing where it’s from? I need it for my own home!

    Where did you get the book Lila? Is that a book cover you made or is it an available children’s book?

    • andrea May 8 2013 at 9:51 pm #

      it’s a photo album that our friends made for her!

    Great idea, as is often the simplest toys are often the best!
