(originally posted on My Really, Real Reality) It's time.  I know it.  I've been feeling the pull and bouncing the idea in my head for a while.  It's time for action.  It's time to nurture my creative side.  To give myself an outlet from the grind of my day job.  And maybe even an "out" from the day job if things go well.  I've been a crocheting machine for the past months.  Recently I have been hooking out gifts...more

Week 7 - All about Bows!

I hope you will all forgive me for not posting this yesterday… but I took on quite the undertaking and wanted to get everything just right before I posted it.  As you can probably tell I have been messing around with a lot of different styles and I think I’ve finally found one that I really like, so I’m trying it out today.  Because of that I wanted to make sure my pictures were just right and I spent a lot of time working on my light box to make it work better....more
