Playful red...

Thanks so much for all the kudos on the new look. I am thrilled with it and glad you are too. The background is a scan of my actual inspiration journal. The house inspiration board on the banner you probaby recognize as the class I'm teaching here in August. So fun to use personal items in the design. Sara was a joy to work with. Love her style and creativity. Speaking of which, the I saw red challenge continues all week on her blog. I thought these children's book illustrations from the Corally book I found at an estate sale the other day were just delightful. Love the red emphasis. Enjoy!
