hello blank page 

How shall we meet the blank page…

Playfully, and with both hands 🙂

And maybe some music?

Wanted to share a few things from the magic courtyard! Hope you are soaking in some rays of sunshine and listening to a songbird 🙂

The next two weeks in our Year of the Spark class we are drawing inspiration from nature.
It’s been glorious already 🙂
Wishing you quiet time outdoors to savor the details 🙂
With lots of love,

Holiday Cheer!!!

Don’t you love making gifts for the holidays? We made a family decision a few years back that we wouldn’t spend money, we would each just make something for one another and it was such a great experience we continued the tradition 🙂
One of my favorite things was the hand written letters from my husbands father, George… He wrote beautiful words about each of us and how proud he was of our lives…
Pure treasure 🙂
Wishing you and yours a lovely new tradition and a very happy holiday season.
With much love,
Lynn
