Practicing Creativity on a Regular Basis


Hi everyone. Today, I thought I’d just write a quick post on practicing creativity on a regular basis. Creativity means different things to different people. For some, it means cooking some amazing meals, some like weaving or writing, and some people (like me )like painting, drawing and lettering. Basically, art.  I think it’s so important to stay in that zone- where…

3 Quick Home Flower Arrangements


When it comes to arranging flowers, I like to (usually) keep it simple. There’s something very alluring about a full bouquet, but one thing I don’t like about it is- there are too many details! A few get missed each time you admire the arrangement, because there obviously is a bigger focal point (larger blooms, more foliage).  So, today, I…

Hello! Let’s welcome back Leach, who created this amazing abstract art- purely because she had to. Inspiration can strike anytime!
