A HINT of gold: CHEVRON and lines.

Oh how the mouse has been needing company. At home and the office space. FINALLY I got around to making them. Simple and too easy. Had everything but the cork piece. Found it at a garage sale for 0.50 cents! Score.

CHEVRONLINES1_TEE2ENVISAGE

Oh this 1 can of gold spray paint has lasted me.

CHEVRONLINES1_TEE2ENVISAGE

I eyeballed the lines as I taped it up. It is about an inch apart.

Next you are going to use your X-acto knife and cute out certain pieces that you would want your pattern.

Be sure to be outside or in an open space before using your spray paint. I was in my patio with the nice touch of pine scraps on the balcony. Let the spray paint dry for about 10-15 mins. Spray a second coat if your heart desires for it. Then let it dry another 10-15 mins before peeling off the painters tape.

AND Viola! Finito. A hint of chevron and lines. My mouse finally has a companion.

See what happens when the gloomy weather rolls around? My craft creativity oozes out of me. Hope you enjoyed this and happy Wednesday.

Last summer we had friends visiting.  Ohhh these two…I couldn’t get enough of them.  B and I miss you guys mucho!!!  Here are a few photos I took of them as they explored Cannon Beach or as they call it here “THE COAST”.  It was Kara’s first time touching the North Pacific Ocean’s water.  The little things that puts a smile on ones face–ohhh I LOVE!  Photos taken with Canon 5D Mark ii.  Enjoy!

SIMPLE THINGS_TEE2ENVISAGE

1} Brick walls adds a touch to any photo!

2} Translucent black glass bottle and cup–soo simple yet soo elegant.  NO chemicals in my water is a BONUS.

3} Louis Vuitton checker board pattern wristlet/mini purse.  Just perfect for my lip gloss, my phone, and my cards.  Is it weird I don’t like to carry a big purse with me most of the time?  I indulge in the cute small clutches/wristlets.

What simple things do you indulge yourself with?  Please share.

FAREWELL/NEW JOB/BIRTHDAY Celebrations

The weekend was filled with activities.  One of them was a farewell/new job celebration/birthday get together for one of my dearest friend.  We have known each other for a year and some and my the bond we have is out of this world.  From the laughters to the tears of happy and sad, we had it all, even our mini fights.  All in all she is an amazing person and we are alike in many ways.  The dream she spoke of a year and half ago came true!  Quicker than we expected.  The timing was just right.  I can’t stop being excited for her.  I am sad I won’t have her a few minutes away and also happy she will start her new chapter with great things awaiting for her!  XOXO to you MEL!!!!!!

BEGINNING_TEE2ENVISAGE

I took this quote from F21.  They had it on one of  their notebook.  This was so fitting for Mel because although it is an ending to one chapter it is just the BEGINNING of another.

WORDS_Tee2Envisage

Message in a jar to help her through the gloomy days.  DIY message in the jar posting to come soon.

CUPCAKES_tee2envisage

Many of us won’t be able to make it down on her birthday so I decided to add her birthday celebration in there as well.

BIRTHDAYGIRL_TEE2ENVISAGE

Ahhmazingly she blew out all the candles…

Lava_tee2envisage

Last but not least, Lava was able to join in on the fun celebration.  She was so calm that night and typically this little rascal is all over the place filled with energy.

The night was great and thanks to all who came to celebrate.  She will be back!!! =)

Happy Tuesday.

RADICCHIO EGG SALAD

A salad at Tasty and alder left me craving for more…I had to replicate it.

It is so simple and delish.  I made it for dinner two nights ago as a side salad.

Summer is over AND it won’t stop me from snacking on my mangos.

Hummus and Cheese_TEE2ENVISAGE

Spinach and Artichoke Hummus with sesame water crackers and The Laughing cow Chipotle Queso.

YUMMY in my tummy.  A little cheese won’t hurt–even though I am lactose intolerance. Better than JUNK into my system.

NEW SEASON, MONTH, & LOOK

FALL approached and now October has arrived.  A new season and a new month?  I figured it was time for a new look for tee2envisage.  Simple, clean, and minimal.  Sometimes that is all you need.  I promise to bring you more colors through my posts! *wink*  A few fall/October photos to share from my i5C with the lovely help of natural lighting.

REPURPOSE: Egg Carton

I have been thinking of a home for my rings and it came along this morning.  My morning started with one of my eggs getting stuck in the carton and cracked in half!  I thought to myself what a way to start my morning.

EPICFAILtoSUCCESS-01

A few seconds later I envisioned a ring holder!  I thought YES… REPURPOSE that egg carton!  Ahhhh an epic fail turned into a success.  Not a bad morning after all.

RINGDISPLAY_TEE2ENVISAGE-01

All you need is an egg carton, a knife, maybe scissors, and less than 5 minutes.

birthday WEEKEND

BDAY 2013

Blessed with another year is all I can ask for.  On hindsight last year was filled with many challenges, hiccups, and accomplishments.  I planned and more doors opened.  There were times of uncertainty and I knew I will end the year with I’m ready for the next challenge!  Simple and chilled birthday is all I needed this year.

HBD from the future

Ever since I dog-sat the two Frenchies for our friends I fell in love!  My big smile was because of this reminder: my future frenchie will be here soon.  My creative and loving half drew our future Frenchie.  Love the details.

HBD love note

Every time I read a card from him it melts my heart and eyes filled with happy tears.  The words are much when needed and very heart felt.  Thank you love!

CZ Cards

The CZ cards are simple and pretty.  I will share more about these cards and it’s creators soon. Such a sweet story to the makings of this!  Hope you enjoyed the photos all taken with the Canon Mark II 5D. Have a great TUESDAY!
