New in the shop

I just added 4 different Fall embellishment kits in the shop.  They come packaged in a little bag with a coordinating tag attached, so you can use them for gift giving.  




 If you keep them for yourself, they are perfect for creating specimen art or mobiles. 

Last year I used these paper pumpkins for specimen art...

I am going to make some form of a hanging bat mobile this year.  
I wanted to last year, but just never got to it.

These little strings of leaves I hung around the house last Autumn.  
I LOVE warm Fall colors.

There are lots of fun crafting possibilities to be found with these little paper kits!

Beach Inspiration

The Summer months are always creatively slooooooow in my house.  As the Fall approaches I always get back into a creative mode, but for now we are enjoying the lazy summer days.  
The ladybug and little guy fell in love with the beach this summer.  

I've been seeking ways to preserve our beach adventures.

I love the colors of this mini album, especially the yellow and blues.  Love the doily on the front.

Two Peas in a Bucket


This is just the most precious beach themed mini garden.

HERE you can find a similar idea, but for the kids. We always filled mason jars with sand and shells we collected.

I'm loving these sand crab treats.  She always comes up with some cute and creative treat!
The Seven Year Cottage


These sandal cookies are too fun not to make.  
Family Fun Magazine

Etsy never disappoints either.  This is a premade beach mini album.
Pollys Paper

Any great beach ideas you'd like to share?  I'd love to see them!

Just listed in the shop

Are we thinking school / Fall yet?  


Okay, it's still July. 
 
Don't worry, we still have plenty of summer days ahead full of sunscreen and little toes in the sand!


I just added this set of sweet little apple tags to the shop.  
There are lots of little details and textures in these tags.  

I'll have a similar pumpkin / Fall tag listed in the next couple days.

Now, back to that summer sunshine!
