Insta-Update


A look at what's happening around here... through the eyes of Instagram!

Advance copies of my new book arrived - both the UK & US edition. So exciting!
A big box of tape came back from the photographer all organized by colour.
Playing with our new MT tapes - so much fun!
Our tapes are a stocking stuffer pick in The Dance Current.
Spotted this cute wreath idea in Style At Home - washi tape + clothespins.
Rearranged my office space and now I get to look at this all day long! 


Washi tape cups make cute cards.
October saw a mail swap with OMHG pals - all this sweet stuff came to me from Alison.
And here's a peek at how I wrapped my swap package. Love white doodles on kraft!
These just-add-tape cards are a great way to show off your favourite designs.
These just might be my favourite of the new tapes. Or maybe this one.
Experimenting with washi tape mosaics.

Hope to see you over on Instagram! @omiyage_ca

What have you been up to lately? Happy weekend!

Getting To Know - The Angry Weather


The Getting To Know series over on Oh My! Handmade Goodness features interviews with makers, artists, designers and small business owners at all different stages of their careers. I'm always interested in how other adventurers in the world of creative entrepreneurship run their businesses, get inspired and how they got started in the first place.


Iveth Morales is the Montreal-based designer and jeweller behind The Angry Weather. Come meet Iveth and learn about her inspirations, challenges and tips for success as a maker.

The Kirigami Project - Week 46 - Dancing


We're not doing much dancing over here... there's a bit too much snow a bit too soon and we're not terribly excited about that BUT we definitely see dancers in this kirigami designs. As well as singing mouths wide open, uvulas swinging. And one-eyed abominable snowmen - but you can probably blame that last one on the weather. What do you see?


No matter what you see, I'm sure you'll agree this design is quite lovely - dancing mythical creatures and all! To create your own Dancing Kirigami design, use the template below and the 4-point folding pattern. 

Happy paper crafting!

The Kirigami Project is collaborative creative project from Marisa Edghill of Omiyage and Geri Jewitt of The Languid Lion. Marisa creates the kirigami designs and Geri turns them into printable templates. Each week in 2014, we will bring you a new kirigami design to fold and cut. Find the treasury of designs here.
