Welcome to The Looking Glass

So, I decided to try this blog thing. Everyone seems to be doing it these days,,,,,,God only knows who's going to read it LOL. For someone who talks as much as I do, I'm surprised I haven't been blogging for years.

It wasn't as hard to create as I thought, surprise, surprise. I decided to name my blog Through the Looking Glass, because creativity and creation is a reflection of the joy we feel. Daily joy,,,,,,,daily creativity. What form the creativity takes doesn't matter,,,,,,what matters is that you create. Some paint, some craft, some sew, some organize! I like to make pretty things, mostly from paper. Just BUYING new paper makes me smile,,,,,,the feel of satin ribbon is a joy. It calms me, recharges me, and makes me feel closer to God, the creator of ALL things.

With that said, I thought I would share a card I created recently, one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy!!!

the gorgeous seed packet image was courtesy of the Graphics fairy,,,,,,,,,really, check her out, she's WONDERFUL! You can find her button which will link you right to her blog over there ~~> ribbon is basic sheers from Michaels and the larger flowers were made from the Rose creations dies by Spellbinders (one of the BEST things I ever bought). Smaller flowers are Die-namics mini rolled roses dies from My Favorite Things. LOVE those too! Paper is K and company Water Colors paper pad.

I hope you enjoyed!
