Floral Statements


How would you like a super easy card to make this monday morning?
This is a new stamp set called Floral Statements.  It has two good sized stamps in it, one thank you and the other hello.


Starting with whisper white cardstock I stamped the sentiment right in the center with archival black ink, then continued to stamp the sentiment all over the rest of the cards.  Super easy! 


Then choosing from our new in color line of ink I used the Lemon Lime Twist for the leaves and Powder Pink for the rose on  the thank you card and Soft Sky ink for the hello card.
I applied the ink by using the Aqua Painters 
You could even add some ribbon to the card, I personally just wanted it as simple as you see it.
Give it a try!

Color your world



Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun!
Well, my new door color covers everyone of those words!!!
I took a leap of faith with this color called Bora Bora Shore by Sherwin Williams.   It even sounds fun doesn't it!
You must do what you love!  be creative!


It took one coat of primer and two coats of the Bora Bora Shore to cover the existing black. I also took the time to lightly sand the door before I started to primer it. 
It's a labor of love people!!


If you have been to my home before you know it's come as you are, as the door mat states. 
 It's so important to me that all who enter feel welcomed and at home.
The door mat can be found at House of Belonging


I hope I have inspired you today to add a little color to your world!
I certainly had to step outside of my comfort zone by painting this color.  I typically choose neutral colors. 
 Remember this, paint is temporary and can be easily changed!

Hidden Meadows



My daughter and I love to adventure out.  We headed up to Snohomish this past week to find this u-cut wildflower farm.
As we left I saw a sign that read "Hidden Meadows", you couldn't see anything so we drove over the railroad tracks and there it was!
This beautiful piece of property with incredible views. 


The staff was so accomodating in letting us look around.  They were cleaning up from an event from the weekend.  
I love to scout out new venues for upcoming wedding ideas.
This property boasts everything you can imagine.


Love this fire pit just off of the reception and bar area. 


You can choose to get married indoors or out. 
 This obviously is the outdoor area!





and this, the indoor area


there's my girl in the background!
Someday I will see her walk down an aisle just like this!  aawwww..... just had a moment there!

Below is the bride's squad room


I love finding these beautiful venues for weddings/events.

A Little Wild


Would you like a quick and easy idea for some little 3 x 3" cards?
These babies are easy to put together.   For the background I have just used Washi Tape.   Choose as many colors as you like and start putting them down on your cardstock, 
 (this can also be done on a regular size card)
I used some neutral colors for my background.


And look who returns!  the adorable lion from the A Little Wild stamp set.


and..... well, it's FRIYAY!!!
So get your messy bun on, grab a cup of your favorite drink, better days are coming,  they are called;
Saturday and sunday!!!!
