Blessings to You

Good day to you! I'm enjoying this break from the Internet so much that I might just make it a permanent thing! I am enjoying a greater closeness to my husband and children that I want to continue to foster. I had no idea my heavy online usage was hurting my family so much. I highly recommend turning off the computer more often! Your family will be blessed!

Despite my time offline, I still find time to stamp here and there. I pulled out an old standby technique that I used to do all the time: watercolor misting. Simply color your stamp with markers as you like and then spritz the stamp with water and stamp. Easy! And the results are so pretty!

I pray you have a wonderful week!
