bye bye february, hello beautiful march! because forest floor fabrics began shipping this week, i couldn't resist using one of my favorite pieces from the collection, in the thicket. this little bunny is perfect for easter! i asked for your help in naming her over on instagram this week. i'm pleased to announce that her name is SAGE!
what i love most about this month: planning our garden, ordering seeds, easter and preparing for spring! what are your favorite things about march?
february is almost over and march is quickly coming! as i do every month, i’m sharing with you this month’s recap of the roost tribe, which gives you a sneak peek of what roost tribe members received last month. if you’re interested in receiving it, you still can. i’ll be sending out a recap on wednesday to members with all of the content in it from last month so no one will have missed anything, regardless of when you might have joined during the month.
that means, that if you join before wednesday, march 2nd you’ll still get all of february’s content + march’s content as well – that’s two months for the price of one!
a valentine's day printable suite - perfect for mother's day, too!

the blog tour for my succulence fabrics collection ended yesterday, and i have been so anxious to share everyone's projects with you! i was honored to have 16 makers from all over the world participate and contribute their projects to the tour. every single day i was blown away by the creativity and quality of the projects. i know you're going to enjoy exploring each of them, as well!

in addition to teaching on skillshare, i love to get MY learn on as well! there are so many quality classes being offered on so many different skill sets. i even improved my knife skills recently! if you're interested in learning, skillshare is the place for you. here are some classes i've taken recently and really enjoyed!
i've had a silhouette cameo machine for a few years now, and i still don't know how i ever lived without it (remember this?). i've cut everything from invitations and hang tags to camera straps and removable tattoos. it's amazing!
after connecting with the lovely people of silhouette at a recent tradeshow, they asked if i'd like to design for their design store. of course, i said, 'YES'! i have about 40 designs available right now, and try to add new ones each week.
