Dabbling with acrylics and practicing pet portraits I decided to create one in honor of my childhood pet Toby. This painting is dedicated to his memory and gentle nature.

These adorable straws were sent to me by Carrie at cdk designs and all I could think about was lemonade so I took some photos with lemons! I had the best time shooting these. Carrie was so generous and sent me a bunch of goodies from her fab store including a magnet, ribbon, striped bags and the striped straws. Check out the close ups of the straws and bags below and don't forget to visit her store on etsy.

Today on Scoutie girl Tara posted about gifts of enthusiasm which I think is fabulous to ponder - gifts that require "no bows... just you." For me the ocean and all it's blues contrasted with the soft sand is what I am crazy about! I created the following treasury with that in mind entitled "Of the Sea."
I have become slightly addicted to curating treasuries on etsy and wanted to share another of my collections with you. The raven is actually a bird that I have an affinity for as it's part of a family crest. So I took that inspiration and found all things raven. I was thrilled to see that Joan Colbert featured my treasury on her blog.
