whale done!



Hello & Happy Monday!

Still playing with the Basic Grey Persimmon Collection.  I'm pleased that it can rock the nautical theme, whaddya think?

I found a package of those wood buttons that I picked up at Impress...threaded it through using some Timeless Twine natural twine.


By the way, Timeless Twine has all their spools on sale this week for $6/each!


I was inspired by the current
