Month: April 2012


I just LOVE these new papers from Prima Marketing! The SONGBIRD collection is so soft and pretty, and simple.  I let the paper speak for itself here, just adding a birthday note held with some natural hemp twine and a small clothespin. I hope you have a happy day and don’t forget to feed your creative needs.  Deena

The Cutest Little Baby Face

I could never resist taking a photo of my boys fresh out of the bath with a hooded towel over their sweet little heads!  This image was inspired by these memories.
