What do you do when life hands you lemons? You make lavender lemonade! I had lavender on the brain after getting my new Club Scrap® Lavender Fields kit. Purple is one of my favorite colors…I even painted my bedroom lavender when I was in high school! I love perusing Pinterest for artwork ideas and I… Continue reading Lavender Lemonade

I was hooked when I scrolled through the JFF website and saw the stamptangle images! The stamptangle line is inspired by the zentangle technique and the images are so beautiful and intricate.

Enjoying those moments of complete freedom is something we forget about doing as adults. Every kid wants to play… Continue reading Dreaming
