tape artist chris hosmer

i'm almost afraid to post these pictures; they are so intimidating! and, actually, he's not even using my tape. but, they are so worth posting, whatever tape he's using! if you want to feel completely inadequate, visit his blog! amazing!

happytape fans, unite!!

i love the wide variety of styles so many of you are finding for Happytape! cards, collages, envelopes, and Easter treats! thank you for sending pictures of your projects! i'm feeling inspired!

i've been delighted with the amazing responses i've had to happytape! i knew i wasn't the only american who would love it!! i'm so excited to have been mentioned on Jordan Ferney OhHappyDay, ohdeedoh Apartment Therapy, Mighty Goods, Orange Beautiful, Krisatomic, armelle blog, CasaSugar, MightyHaus, and other blogs. i certainly underestimated the demand!

sadly, i have sold out of several sets! don't worry, though! i'll be all stocked up in a week or so! and this time, i won't be selling out so quickly!

keep sending your project pictures and ideas to happytape(at!)gmail.com. i'll be posting them soon!

cute, cute japanese masking tape tags and cards

so many talented people--i love these cards and tags! (by christen prueger)

japanese masking tape cards...yay, happytape!

i'm so happy i've become a distributor for this beautiful japanese tape. i don't know why the u.s. doesn't have a manufacturer for more specialized tapes, but discovering mT tape is one of the best things i've done (aside from marrying an amazing man, and mothering some amazing kids)! i keep being impressed by the cute-ifying this tape can do!

look what allibell from the DC area has created with our japanese tape! pure spring!!
(for sale in her etsy shop, here.) thanks, allibell!!

perfect for makeovers, too!

*if her glasses were actually broken, we'd probably just replace them. i love this tape, but i'm a good mom, too.
