WELL. I guess by now the secret’s out! I’m an official “.com-er” thanks to my big bro who is a very helpful web developer. He saw my potential and bought me the foggydress.com domain name, and has helped me design this super clean & simple layout. It took a few days & a big bump in the road (there might still be a few more), but here she is. I also need to thank Jesse Lee for collaborating with me on a really fun photo shoot, and capturing that cool profile picture you see in the upper left-hand corner.
Since the website has been the source of my attention & time as of late, I didn’t get around to posting these super easy Valentine’s Day Grams! I love sending postcards in the mail because they’re quick & informal &…the postage is cheaper (can you tell AKG is rubbing off on me??). I think some of the best gifts or signs of love we can give each other are kind words of appreciation and admiration.
I love imperfectness. There’s so much beauty in creating something and just loving it the way it is–flaws & all. Make these grams as goofy, silly, or imperfect as you can, so the person who receives it will know it was not purchased in a store, but made by loving hands.
- hard poster paper or card stock (can you tell I used left-over paper from the photo-booth props post?)
- scissors or a razor & cutting mat
- a ruler & a black sharpie
- a postcard (I used our Christmas postcard–can you tell I love postcards yet?)
- pretty paper
- gel pens, metallic markers, crayons, whatever you want to use to write with
Keep reading for the full tutorial.
On the “back side” of your card, we’re going to make a few lines. With your ruler and black sharpie, draw line one down the middle (or about 2/3 to the right, like I did) and a few lines on the right hand-side for the name & address. Yeah, my lines are different lengths… I was going for A-symmetrical :)
high five. -hanalei
