Nature’s Pace Wedding Invitation

Nature’s Pace Wedding Invitation


When you are not a graphic designer (and most of us aren’t!) stamps are a great way to use someone else’s design talents to your benefit.  Every now and then I see stamps that I think would be wonderful to be used on a wedding invitation and this honey bee enveloped in a delicate wreath … Continue reading

Have A Banner Birthday


When you purchase a set of stamps sometimes it can be hard to image all of the possible ways you can use them!  One of the easiest ways to extend the use of a stamp is to separate the design from the text by stamping with markers instead of stamp pads.  You can move the … Continue reading

My Faux Mercury Glass

My Faux Mercury Glass


My obsession with mercury glass is one of those things I haven’t fully disclosed to my husband.  I have been secretly stashing my collection of everything from candlesticks to glass birds in my closet, all in anticipation of the master bedroom redo that is approaching. I also have been searching high and low for the … Continue reading
