Be Wild and Free

I have a fun card I want to share before I get going on the
other not-so-fun parts of my day. 
Remember this fun sailboat I created last year?  Maybe you don't.  But I just love it so much that I've created several projects using it different ways.  Here's a card I made recently with a Little Yellow Bicycle cardstock sticker that says "be wild & free". 
This message is me lately.  I've been trying to let go of things I have no control over and enjoy what's right in front of me.  Some days are harder than others but everyday it seems to get better!  And that's all we can do!  Keep trying! 
Here's the card and then I'm also sharing the pattern I created so you can make one too if you'd like! 
I've always LOVED the craft of paper piecing and that's all that this is!
Enjoy! And Happy Hump Day!

A layout and a tag!

Hey there! Holey Smokes!  It's been way too long since I posted last!  And it was depressing to say the least.  What can I say?  Sometimes life gets hard.  Really hard.  I don't think I deal with things very well but one thing I do know... somehow... someway the dark clouds roll and the sunshine starts peeking through.  I try to soak up the sun when I can.  One thing that helps me feel better is getting creative!  Creating something fun or pretty always lifts my spirits! 

This month Becky Fleck asked if I wanted to create a layout based on one of her February sketches.  I've always loved Page Maps and you can visit there to see so many more fun sketches as well as this layout I scrapped of Cassidy's birthday.  Here's a link to the February sketches specifically. 

Remember my Tag-A-Month Desk calendar I posted last month?  You can see that post here if you missed it.  Well.... I created my tag for this month and posted it on Instagram but hadn't shared it here yet.  There's mostly Bo Bunny Love Letters on this. I love tags so this is just a fun little project that gives me an excuse to make one each month! 

Hope everyone's February is off to a great start!  Be back soon! Hugs!
