Finally the weekend and I feel yucky! Why does illness have to come on when I have time to do crafty things? I did have time to do a little project last night. I was surfing Craftgawker the other night and came across this computer keyboard decorated with Washi tape at the blog Her New Leaf. I have about nine rolls of Washi tape sitting around with nothing to do with them so I figured why not? I love color and hate white for anything other than an accent color so the fact that I have to have a white laptop (because I’m a Mac girl and that’s the only choice they give us) annoys me. I’ve always wanted to give it some color and as of last night I now have a French and colorful laptop.
It was quite easy and faster then I thought I would be. I love the sort of aged and distressed look the tape gives too. Some of my tape was thinner then the rest so it doesn’t completely cover all the keys but I still like it.
I wrote an update on the keyboard. It does get a little worn. keyboard update
I was also channeling a little Elizabeth Bennet and decided to do my Regency/Jane Austen hair do. You start with some pin curls. I wash my hair and then pin it and sleep with it like that.
Simple but elegant and feminine. It’s also snowing here and I can’t wear a hat with that hair so I had my first opportunity to wear my headband that I knitted. It did indeed keep my ears warm and I had a bit of a 40′s vibe with it. Even bought a red lipstick to go with the look.
