What we've been up to

Aside from our weekly photo assignments, we've been taking a bit of a hiatus from posting here at smartsandcrafts, which isn't to say we haven't been busy...

First, we made this video to accompany Derek's story about Conn & John's Maui abode.

We also took a trip to the Alemany Farmer's Market last weekend and picked up fruit to make yummy strawberry, apricot and plum jam with our friend Kate.

We sewed up some oilcloth lunch bags for this week's DIY Wednesday post over at design*sponge.

I started making a cut paper luminaria from a japanese craft book I picked up at Kinokuniya.

Finally, we've been hard at work over the past couple months on a super exciting book project, which involves much crafting, photographing and writing. More on this later- wish us luck as we spend the next few days finishing it up!
