Yesterday was glorious!  Birds busy at work looking for bits to turn into a nest, little spikes of bright green emerging from the ground, people in t- shirts out on walks & the warmth of sun on my back.  Spring is right around the corner my friends.  Can you feel it?  Hope so!

And We're Back!

We returned home yesterday from a much needed getaway.  We sat in the sun, played in the sand & spend some time with family.  All & All a very nice trip...
BONUS: *Today's Friday & there's still some sand in my shoes.  Have a great weekend!

Creative Retreat!

A couple months ago I was contacted by Ali at The Makerie.  Have you heard of them?  The Makerie is creative retreat for everyone, providing time to play, in settings that inspire, topped off with some really great food!  The next retreat is April 10-13 in Boulder, Colorado. With a schedule of exciting, enticing workshops.  What a wonderful opportunity to try something new, meet some new people & exercise your creative muscles a bit.

I hope to be at their retreat in July,  Summer on the Farm.  I can already close my eyes & picture myself under that big tree, flowers around, tractor not far off & me crafting away!
Hope to see you there!

Ali did such a beautiful job with her site. (always in Awe of that)
You can clearly see she has a vision to share & inspire.

St. Patrick's Day Sweet

I'm Irish.  When I was little my mom use to make me & my 3 brothers corn beef, cabbage &  Irish soda bread each St. Patrick's Day.  I wanted to make a treat for Luca's kindergarden class to celebrate the day.  Knowing that corn beef & cabbage would most likely not be a hit I opted for candy & color.
(with a little inspirational message)

Happy St. Patrick's Day & Follow your DREAMS to the end of the rainbow!

From my sketchbook

What a funny saying- but I do like cherries.

Hello!  Today I'm showing my English to Spanish icon flashcards.
This is something that is near & dear to me with a husband from Chile you
often hear Spanish in our house.

The cards are 4" wide by 5" tall & are held together by a recloseable ring.
I wanted a big card size that was easy for little hands to hold.

This is what is on each card.  I think the mouse is my favorite.

A fun gift or something to throw in the stroller or diaper bag.

The whole family is SO excited to officially get the project started & see it all come to life!
