Inspiration in the Midst of Chaos...

Hello, Sweet Friends! I have been neglecting you, haven't I? Things are crazy here...well, crazier than usual, I should say! We are selling our house and we had our first "lookers" yesterday, so it's been a flurry of cleaning (read: wiping things with those life-saving treasures otherwise known as Clorox Wipes) and organizing(read: hiding stuff in cupboards and the trunk of my husband's car!), and at the same time, trying to keep a fussy, feverish little guy happy. Yikes! But the first "lookers" yesterday "loved the house," according to the realtor, and are coming back today for another look. I won't get my hopes up, but Oh how I hope this all goes down quickly and easily!


But before I go back to cleaning or my fussy little man wakes up, I do want to share some yummy piccys with you all. These are things that are inspiring me as I think about a new collection I'm planning...can you guess the theme???

Oops..let's try that again!!

Thank you, dear, sweet friends! I had a bit of a creative breakthrough today and worked on a few items for this collection. I had to get over the initial fear/anxiety about cutting up precious vintage cards! But now that I'm over that, a whole new creative horizon has opened up...
