“Written By Hand” by Erica Tighe

  Back in my younger years, before I had children, I loved to spend my spare time crafting.  I find it very relaxing to sit down at the table with a set of paints, a glue gun or a sketch pad. Written By Hand published by Rock Point Press and sold by Quarto Books would be the […]

Blend It…Perfectly! ~ GIVEAWAY!

The great thing about being creative is that there are no rules. It’s a time when kids can doodle, draw, build, paint and express themselves in their very own unique way.

Stress Less & Paint! ~ GIVEAWAY!!

Painting is something I’ve always enjoyed. In the last…hmmm…say 10 years since having children I’ll admit that it’s not something I’ve had much time for, but every once in a while I’ll take an evening, pull out my paintbrushes and the current paint-by-number picture I’m working on and paint the night away. 😉 And yes, […]

I have a side business making furniture and home decor plus I like to refurbish older furniture for personal use, so this post is really in my wheel house.
