Ladybugs Softball Banner

My little miss is playing her second season of softball. There are distinct differences between softball and baseball and mainly the cuteness factor is amped way up. They wear fun socks and have matching hairbows. In this league, the teams get to decide on their own team name. The team decided on Ladybugs. Eeeeek so […]

Watercolor succulents

I have fallen in love with succulents and cacti. They are a plant that are just my speed. Normally plants come to die in my care. I like the idea of having plants, I just haven’t been very good at taking care of them. I started painting in watercolor again and found these to be […]

Hip Hop Valentines

As per usual, I asked my daughter this year what kind of valentines she wanted to pass out to her friends. She has been in dance for a few years now, and for the third year in a row she requested ballerina cards. As a designer, I sighed a little bit hoping for something new […]

Ninja Valentines

Rag Doll Tutorial

I have made a few of these rag dolls in the past and think I have it down now. I took inspiration from some similar dolls I had seen selling on Etsy. Our cute little neighbor Jaycee turned 3 so I thought I’d make her one for her birthday. She is the cutest little blonde with […]

Painted “Wallpaper”

We are redecorating our 1st floor bathroom, and one project for the space, that I am totally in love with, is this painted “wallpaper”. I wanted the look of a pretty accent wall without the cost or commitment. All it took was some paint, time and a steady hand. The original design for this, came […]
