4 Fun Ways To Use Washi Tape

Use long strips of washi tape to decorate your charger cords.

Write someone a message.

Use it with some baker's twine to make a mini banner.

Make a tiny book out of scrap paper and use the 
washi tape to bind the book (and hide the staples).

I have lot of washi tape, so I'm always trying to think of fun new ways to use it. Above are a few ideas I tried. I think my favorite has to be the iPhone charging cord; it's such a fun and easy way to tell yours apart from your friends'. Doing my computer cord next....

Looking for other creative ways to use washi tape? Here are 6 more.

And if you don't have any washi tape, here's a fun starter set.

Memorable Moments From My Trip To Provincetown

We took the dinghy over to this quiet beach for some R&R.

The most delicious meal of the weekend 
was definitely here at Tin Pan Alley... 
and we had the best seat in the house!

The lovely Provincetown Public Library.

We rented stand up paddle boards one afternoon... 
it's now officially my favorite form of exercise!

The dinghy broke down and we had to be towed....

This dog had the right idea... who needs 
to walk when you can bum a ride?

A beautiful view of Boston on the ferry ride home.

Sorry Design Fixation went silent there for a little while... suffice it to say that my computer got in a fight with a glass of water so we had to dry out for a few days. Everything is back up and running now, so I wanted to share a few photos from my recent trip to Provincetown in Massachusetts. If you aren't familiar, it's at the very tip of the Cape... and quite a place. Mike and I go every summer, and this trip certainly didn't disappoint.

Check out other memorable photos and inspiration from our past trips to PTown here.

{Typeface Tuesday} Unbelievable Quilled Paper Typography



I could not believe my eyes when I ran across this quilled piece of typographical artwork. I almost posted an emergency Typeface Tuesday on a Wednesday. This artist, apparently named Hambeck, loved Beck's album cover enough to create this unbelievable quilled work of art. But wait, that's not all - the coolest part is the video of the process. Watch below.

 
You're welcome.
