Holiday Weekend!

Friday, July 1st, 2011

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead and for those of you celebrating the 4th of July, may you have a fun and safe weekend! I don’t have any major plans but I hope to get some R&R and hopefully a little sun if it ever decides to show up here.

With a few days before the holiday I thought I’d do a round up of some of my favorite crafts I’ve seen lately. Hope you enjoy!

If you’re looking for that little detail to make your 4th of July event perfect, Martha Stewart obviously has you covered. The magazine has generated a ton of ideas over the years and here are a few of my favorites. All of them are just impeccably done and would make a fine addition to any party.

Explosions in the Sky Poster

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

While not technically a 4th of July project, Micah Max‘s poster for Explosions in the Sky certainly feels festive! Especially clever is the use of Japanese masking tape for the firecrackers. Also in Micah’s own words, the long fused fireworks “…represent the band’s ability to go from quiet, shimmering beauty to bold, loud passages in an instant.” Lovely.
