Living in the Midwest, most of our travels include forests and trees. Campgrounds provided plenty of shade and we rarely found ourselves needing an awning. Most of our sun hours are spent walking in the woods or touring historic sites. There are occasions when a light rain storm is blowing and it is nice not […]
I wrote down all your names on a separate piece of paper and fished out the winner from a bowl. I wish I could send each and every one of you an ornament! But I had to choose one and it is: Sue Bouwense!!! You all can give me a gift by sharing my […]
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 […]
I’m Having trouble with WordPress showing me all of your names. So, I’m asking any of you followers who would like to be considered for a drawing to win this canvas ornament to comment on this post. Sorry I had to do it this way. I will pick the winner, from those who […]
