Hope you had an amazing Labor Day weekend with friends and family near and far!
I’d love to share something with you that’s made my creative soul JUMP with joy. Have you heard of Creativebug? Creativebug offers online video arts and crafts workshops and techniques. Learn how to paint, sew, knit, crochet, quilt and so much more. If you have been following me on Facebook or Instagram, you know I’ve taken a few of the creative sketchbooking classes with the uber talented Pam Garrison.
I’d love for you to join me on my odyssey to watercolor through life. Pam teaches a very nonjudgmental approach to painting, and I’ve learned so much in the few short weeks I’ve been doing the classes. Below are a few of the pieces I’ve created:
So if you have ever wanted to learn to sketch or try anything from calligraphy to jewelry making, head over to Creativebug TODAY. They offer a free 14-day trial and after that, its only $4.95 a month. It’s that easy!

This past weekend I had the luxury of attending Monarch Workshop. The workshop is run by an incredible group of women (including our very own Madeline) and aims to support “those who need a little push, those who are looking for a creative connection, and those who need inspiration to believe they can follow their dreams.”
The attendees were made up of a spectacular group of women whose occupations ranged from bloggers to therapists and real estate agents to artists. The two day workshop consisted of non-stop activities (lessons, speakers, crafting) that catered to the mind, body and soul. It was FABULOUS.
Our fearless leader, Jennifer Paganelli, was a guest speaker and led the group in creating vision books. The books were created by gluing inspiring cut outs (words, quotes, images) from magazines onto blank notebook pages.
There was yoga and lessons in make-up and skincare. We made our own dream catchers, ate delicious food (from the ladies at Whisk + Brush) and had a tutorial in all things confetti! Take a look below of more images from the incredibly talented Victoria Gloria:

Wow I am the luckiest girl I know!!! This past weekend I was unable to attend Quilt Market due to our imminent show here back at home. I was fortunate to be blessed by lovely friends who really did an outrageous job of sharing Lucky Girl with all of you. First of all to know the Long Ladies of Marie Madeline Studios is to love them. Hearts as big as the eye can see. You just want to be around them and be smothered by there openness to love you right back. I am so touched by their gifts and there uncanny ability to make beautiful things. This year with appliques and stunning clothing and fierce patch working I can only pray that they hit the roof in sales!! My understanding was that the booth was always crowded!! I want to thank Freespirit for supplying them with Lucky Girl so they could have everything ready for market. Long Girls what can I say..except your beauty out shined everything ! I will always be your fearless cheerleader and always here for you. Jenny thanks for your satellite reports from the Convention center in Houston you did an amazing job!!! So please venture over they have lots of Lucky Girl in stock and Patterns that will bring a smile to your soul.!!

Brothers and sisters can now have the Sis Boom vibe . Check out the Hamling’s on this beautiful spring day and you can be sure mama Jeanne made the most beautiful clothes. This just excites me so much to see a bowtie and a shirt all from Sis Boom patterns as well as the Marissa and the Vanessa. Gorgeous family she’s raising and I get to be the beneficiary of Jeanne’s talents. So thanks Hamlings for this beautiful portrait on facebook so grateful to see you all! And on top of all that beauty the Scientific Seamstress has 30% off all Sis Boom patterns so use code TRYSCI call her nutsy!!!!!! That is a great deal!
