your succulents are beautiful and so is your tape. Quite unsure what it's for yet, but it's great.

Such a beautiful rock! Love the simplicity and message of the piece.

And Daniel takes after both his parents it seems. Such a great tape holder.

@ Victoria Knysh: It's a succulent called Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg.
@VCA=: I just use it as regular masking tape to package my Etsy prints.

Daniel is clever and did a great dispenser for your tapes. How nice! The rock has a pretty color and your succulents are always so beautiful!
I have a Daniel (son) too, but he is little.

Geninne, I continue to be inspired by the lovely things you share with us each day. I love the light blue/aqua stone, and those tapes...I gotta get me some. Daniel is such a dear sweet son to keep making you handy tools to help you in the studio.

Victoria: You are absolutely right! The echeveria is on the left and on the right is a beautiful fuzzy plant called Kalanchoe tomentosa. I always get my right/left confused :-P
