These days my thoughts have been turning more to the comforts of home-and that comfy vibe worked it’s way onto the drawing board in my new design-WEEKEND VIBES!  It’s filled with all the cozy joys of being indoorsy on the weekend- books, warm cups of goodness, bagels to brunch on, a fireplace to cuddle by and […]

craft the joy of HOWL-O-WEEN

Who said Halloween is just for kids? It’s one of my favorite holidays because of the sheer fun of it all! I love the weather, the pumpkins everywhere- spooky movie marathons- and seeing all the kiddos in their costumes! And of course- all that candy!  And you know who else loves Halloween? The four legged […]
