And its my FAVORITE magazine! Somerset Life. Months ago Somerset contacted me and asked if I would like to submit a kit. Of course I said yes and was so excited to have been "discovered". I REALLY have a hard time keeping secrets so this has been killing me. lol But, I wanted to wait until the magazine came out. I think I had ten panic attacks wondering what to send. Then a sweet, wise, friend told me to follow my heart and do what I love. So of course I made a kit with lace, glass glitter, bobbles, buttons, and more all tucked into a little nest. My color theme was aqua and chocolate. I am so thrilled to be in the same magazine as some very talented wonderful artist like Delila, Jenny, Andrea, Cari, Rebecca, and Heather. It really is a beautiful magazine! I feel so lucky to be in it.

I just thought I would share some pics I took today. I had a stack of vintage postcards sitting in my studio and got inspired to photograph them. I so passionately love old paper, stamps, and handwriting. I love how the word postcard is different on each one. Is anyone else obsessed about postcards too?

Well this last week was spring break here. I got a LOT less done than I had planned. My 2 stepsons where with us for the week. Its really hard to get anything done with 3 boys around. But I did get to go visit family, go shopping, we planted two trees, started a veggie garden, and I made some beautiful wall art. I cut down a french door, painted it, then put antique papers behind it. Its on the wall above my kitchen table. I just LOVE it. I also FINALLY found a hat with millinery flowers. yay! My mom gave me some fresh eggs from her chickens. I had to take a picture. I just love fresh eggs. I would love to have some chickens but that's where hubby draws the line. lol I will have to wait until we move to the country someday.

It seems spring has sprung around here. And I am SOOO happy to see it. I can't wait to plant some tomatoes and peppers in my garden. I plan to make some new flower beds in my front yard as well. So much to do so little time. I will leave you with some colorful pictures of years past and hope everyone is enjoying a lovely spring beginning.

I spent the whole weekend de-cluttering my house! I could not believe all the "craft" stuff I had accumulated. I never throw anything away. It was really hard but I divided a lot of my stash up and I will be listing it on Etsy in the next week. So grab it before I change my mind. lol I will also be listing some new tags that I just LOVE!

I just can't believe all the snow we have gotten this winter. For some reason the birds get hyper when its cold and icy. Today I made myself be still by the windows so I could get a few pics of my feathered friends. They are just soooo cute when they are all puffed up!
Some shop news:
I have not been listing new items in the last few days and will not list any for awhile. I have been hard at work making new things and cleaning my house. lol So stay tuned for some great new items.
