Washi Tape and the New Blogging Vernacular -- A Little Birdie Told Me No. 21



Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.

------------------------------------------------

Bloggers are dreamers and doers,
thinkers and makers
crafters and bakers

And this week, I discovered that
this community of innovators
is crafting a new lexicon as well...

------------------------------------------------

For example, Jocelyn of Inside BruCrew Life
tickled my "so cute it hurts" nerve with:

PUFFY HEART
AS IN
"I puffy heart anything coconut 
and these didn't disappoint!"

She was referring to her
 Coconut Cream Cheesecake Brownies
------------------------------------------------




Alison of Stuff & Nonsense
charmed me with

ROOTLED
AS IN
"Rootled through the cupboards
to be sure the necessary ingredients
and tools were close to hand"

------------------------------------------------

Christine of Christine & Co.
reminded me how much I love and love-to-say

WASHI TAPE
Say "Washi" ten times fast. It's fun!


Check out Christine's source for
unique Washi Tapes 

Did you know you can make jewelry with it?
------------------------------------------------

got all "old-school" on me by using the term

SILHOUETTE
AS IN
"A drawing consisting of the outline
of something, especially a human profile"
-- thefreedictionary.com


NOT
a popular crafting machine
You can read about her technique for
specialty machine and PhotoShop free
Silhouette art HERE
