Hi everyone! I'm happy to be here blogging today and sharing something fun. I've been absent for a bit. I've been super sick for about a week and a half now. Boo. Allergies led to a cold which led to a nasty bout of bronchitis. Whenever I get sick, it always settles in my lungs. So I have cooties. Just finally starting to feel a bit stronger today. The worst part is all the coughing, which has kept me up all night so I'm really loopy from lack of sleep. The other bad news about that is that I missed... Continue reading

Hi friends! Happy Weekend! I hope that fun things are in store for you this fine Saturday! I have something really cool and fun to share with you today!

Hi everyone! I am SO excited to share this project with you today! I had lots of fun making these on Sunday in a lazy sort of way.... Just took my time and enjoyed the process and enjoyed going through my stash of stuff to find the perfect elements. I had this totally happy moment of creating with no deadline or guidelines! I'm starting to think about Easter and getting the house ready for Spring and it felt so nice to spend the day in my studio.

Hi friends! Happy first day of Spring 2017! I know a lot of you are still waiting for Spring to arrive and I'm sending you loads of sunshine and flower filled wishes from Sacramento. I spent a week in Chicago in March many years ago. Until that week I never realized just how fortunate we are with our weather. It was below freezing every day that entire week, and not a green leaf or bloom in sight! This year, we've already had all of our daffodils bloom and go, and now have a yard full of tulips and crocus. And... Continue reading

Hi everyone! Happy Weekend! What are you up to? Did you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Did you remember to wear green yesterday?! I love green, so that's not a problem for me! I hope that you have some fun stuff planned for this Spring weekend! I have been organizing and simplifying at my house all week. So far I've taken seven bags of things to Goodwill - in one week! Mostly clothes, shoes and purses. Some books too. Last time I really purged, it was the kitchen. It feels really good to be able to have some visual space and... Continue reading
