I can’t believe that my first post of 2017 is at the start of the second month of the year. It wasn’t planned, that’s for sure. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen me mention a creative rut I’ve been going through and that is the real reason behind my silence. When I’m creatively zapped I don’t like posting, it just doesn’t seem sincere and it certainly won’t bring you anything new.
First of all, I want to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about February’s freebie ornament for the See The Light Collection. When I was getting ready to cut the project out my machine decided that it wouldn’t cut through the paper at all. I’ve tried everything and nothing has worked so far. The files are ready but I hate to give you something that I haven’t tested and put together. There are many times when my math isn’t up to par – lol! I will postpone this month’s freebie and give you two projects next month. So, the project will be up-to-date in March. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Like I said, the creative rut I was in really prevented me from posting anything in the shop. I just couldn’t come up with anything that was worth sharing. My bar is set at “would I enjoy using and/or making this?” and nothing I had was meeting that standard. I finally decided to just sketch for fun and that’s how it all came pouring out. Finally!
So… the Geranium Influence and Blooming High wall art sets are now available in the shop. I’m so happy with these because they are versatile, compatible (if you’d like to mix and match) and I love that they still have a hand drawn quality to them. They are both flowers that I draw a lot, so they’re like old friends. The name for the Geranium Influence set came to me when I realized that I probably draw these flowers because of my grandmother’s love of geranium flowers. She always had them and she tended to them on a daily basis. She even talked to them!
I’m glad I’m finally back and finally into something of an artsy rhythm. It doesn’t feel right when I’m off. I hope you have a great weekend and as always if you have any questions about the projects just let me know. I’m always here to help!

Gorgeous work as always. Love the little pop of colour used.
Thank you so much Jamie!
Beautiful! Oh I understand the creative rut. However sometimes I think we need that to produce a WOW design/project! Hang in there!
Thank you so much Marilyn!
