hello crafty friend.




Happy Saturday!

I've been smitten with the color coral:


That washi?  I picked it up from the Target $ spot and I love it!  Gah, it's the things that I only buy 1 of that I love...the ones that I buy multiples of, don't end up working out...figures, eh?

I was inspired by Sav's card HERE.  I like the look of the solid mason jars...kind of like THIS.  I'd do mine white, like milk glass.

Here's a peek into my new joint office {with my boy}.  As you can see on the upper right hand side of the desk, I have a few of my milk glass pieces clustered.


I used the following fresh ink colors:

charcoal
provincial gray
cocoa
coral
mango
grass

I combined the Paper Smooches 



Did you guess that I was playing along with 




Thanks to Lisa, I'm also linking up to the current Paper Issues:  Mix Tape with Hazel & Ruby


I've been trying to 'move more'.  I don't mind walking and I average 4 miles a day on the days that I work {2 miles at lunch and 2 miles to meet up with Darin}.

Yesterday we took a nice little hike...do you see the waterfall behind us?


I totally love living in Washington State!

  10. First, you delight and inspire with your charming card, then with your office space (yes, I'm envious), then with the photo of you and Darin (gorgeous couple you make and the scenery is stunning!), and THEN with your walking routine! Mega inspiration in every way!! I need to 'move' more. A lot more! From kitchen table (where my laptop is) to the kitchen counter (my crafting zone), does not exercise make!
