A Crate of Watercolor Flowers

Hi and thanks for visiting! This sweet little Mother’s Day project has very few supplies (for a change). Soooo. Please don’t judge me, but, I save trash. I try to hide it, but apparently my family knows and occasionally they’ll leave interesting paper, string, or containers for me – things that most people would considerContinue reading “A Crate of Watercolor Flowers”

Tags, Tags, and …Tags!

Welcome and Merry Christmas! I love making tags. They are tiny pieces of art, but easy to part with since they don’t require a lot of time. My family has even started to save some of the “used” tags to reuse because they are special. How sweet and affirming is that?! I made tags usingContinue reading “Tags, Tags, and …Tags!”

Gift for a Master Gardener

Hi and welcome. Do you enjoy gardening? My sister and I do and she recently became a Master Gardener. It involves months of classwork, tests, and accumulating many volunteer hours.
