If there is one thing I hope to convey in all my holiday decorating, it’s that creating from your heart is so much more fun than just buying things off the shelf. One truth I rediscover every year, as I unpack my ornaments, is that it’s the ones that come with the love of friends […]
Well, this little project has come to a close. I am so happy with the way this tree has come together. It was fun making something from found things and spending time just creating things. I let the serendipity and the creative muse guide me without stressing over what I would make. It really […]
