Love, Peace and Coffee Layout

I thought today I’d share this page I made using a couple of my digi images and Cottage Arts Letting Go digi kit.  My inspiration for this page came from  CSI: CASE FILE #55 challenge. I’ve use COFFEE GIRL and HOT CUP OF COFFEE available at A Creative Need.   I used My Memories Software to create the layout and used embellishments, and papers to created the layout.   I added the butterfly to my coffee cup and some blue brush strokes.   I did my own word art for the sentiment which was inspired by Easily Mused Six Word writing prompt sentence…”I could think of nothing more than its sweetness”… As I made the page I was thinking how wonderful it would be if only peace and unity were as easily shared as a cup of coffee.  After some contemplative conversations, my friend and I joke that between the two of us and a good cup of coffee we could solve all the worlds problems if only the rest of the world would listen and …

Vintage Books Book Plate Digital Sheet

How is everyone today?  It is Cccooold here in Montreal!!  What do you like to do when you don’t feel like going outside? Aside from browsing your favourite blogs and crafting, of course!  I like to read!! Well, I like to read when I can make the time which was very difficult for me to find this past year.  This year I am making time! It is one of my New Year’s resolutions to READ MORE!  There are so many books I want to read and reread for that matter!  Currently I am re-reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I was 16 when I first read it, so I wanted to see what I would think of it now that I’ve lived a little!    What are you reading? Today I wanted to share these BOOK PLATES that I made.  Do you share your books?  If you do, you might like to make sure you get them back and a great way to do that is to place a book plate in the front or …

Freebie reminder!

I hope you all had a great holiday!  My boys are back in school after their two week break and all was very quiet in the house today!  I missed them! Who’d have thought?! 🙂  We all had a great break from the everyday schedules, but the Holidays were busy for us too, as we had a lot of family/friends over at different times.  We went to a great NEW YEAR’s party too!   Lots of fun and good food, but I have to admit, I’m exhausted!   We’ve had A LOT of snow this winter so far! What’s the weather like where you live? And it’s snowing again as I write this…I really hope it’s not a long winter… Anyway, I just wanted to let you know if you hadn’t noticed already, that I changed the FREEBIE for JANUARY and it’s available HERE.   Enjoy!   And don’t miss this month’s CHALLENGE: blue, beige and white!  See the sticky post at the top of my blog.
