Been a little MIA Lately...

Soooo, since the kids have gone to school this year, I have all day to play in my craft room. Because of that, I have decided to dedicate some time into doing some craft shows. I just took a load of product to the The Barn including these 4 canvases.

I also have a show scheduled for October 10th and of course Handmade'ns in November 7th and 8th this year!

I had fun layering elements and there is a little stitching to add texture.
