New Cards!

Okay, so I haven't been tending to my Etsy shop AND it shows! I recently added these floral cards as a kick start. The floral image is hand-drawn then watercolored and I've used it on many cards because it brings me pleasure. Each card has a 3-D element to it to bring up the oomph factor. Check out my shop sometime and pick out your favorites!

I also posted some "destash" bridal items. I thought I was done with that area of inventory and then my parents call. "We're bringing over some of your things." Okay. I listed some bolts of bridal veiling and sold them immediately -- THANKS CHARLOTTE! I also listed a beautiful bouquet that I used for my bridal displays years ago. It still looks as beautiful today as it did back then!

Beautiful Card by "1 Card Creator"

Isn't this a beautiful card? And it has moving parts! The bottom butterfly spins when you tilt the card!
Check out Diane's Etsy shop: http://www.1cardcreator.etsy.com/
She has a lot of great cards!

Craft Room Makeover

I realized that I never posted a picture of this! I used the recycled board with hooks to create a hanging jar organizer. I'm always saving jars so I was very proud of myself for actually creating something with them! Adds a little "art" to the wall and it's functional!

Trip to Glacier National Park

St. Mary's Falls

Mountain Goat

Lake McDonald

We just got back from a trip to Glacier National Park. What an incredible place! So much to see! It was unbelievable! We camped the night we were there, and I thought we were going to get blown away by a wind storm! We hiked and shot lots of pictures (more to share in the future). We saw mountain goats, big horn sheep, a coyote, deer and all of the magnificent glaciers and some waterfalls! You've gotta go!

Lovely Gift from Croatia

A friend of mine just returned from a trip to Croatia. Look what she brought me! The BEST olive oil I've ever tasted and a sachel of lavendar! Thoughtful, eh!? The olive oil tastes like OLIVES not just oil. Such a rich flavor! The lavendar is unlike any I've smelled before. Really sweet and yummy!
