Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

      I wish I had more space for features… there are several more recipes and projects I wanted to feature (including another art journal) that I just couldn’t squeeze in!

      I encourage everyone to visit frequently because the party is open all week and if you don’t stop back, you truly miss out on a LOT of fabulous ideas and creations! 🙂

      Also, I pick one photo but there are usually many more to see on the features that catch your eye!
