New Shop Item - Sneaky Paper Mice Silhouettes

Add a sense of mystery to your decorations this year with paper mice silhouettes. Inspired by Martha Stewart decorations, these paper mice look great anywhere - and are sure to give your guests a surprise!

New Shop Item - Mini Map Gift Bows

Enjoy traveling but don't get the opportunity often? To me, there's nothing better than snuggling up with some hot coco and doing some armchair traveling. I like learning about new places and love to decorate with old maps. What better way to celebrate the world travelers (or armchair travelers) in our lives than topping off their gifts with map gift bows? Check out our shop listing here for more details!

Diva Challenge #42 - Hope

The Zentangle challenge this week is to create a tangle centered on the theme of hope. When I think of hope this scripture comes to mind:

"Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God."

Zentangle - Diva Challenge #39

The challenge this week was to do a Zentangle with the theme of "love" in honor of 9/11. My immediate thought was to think of love and peace and how they often go hand in hand. This is what I came up with:

"Love & Peace"

On a side note, my when I showed this to my husband and explained how it was about love he asked, "why didn't you do my name or something?" So, I guess I'll be working on a second tile for this challenge! :)
