I’ve cleaned our basement, organized cabinets, cleaned + polished floors, and I can’t do it this week. MAX LIMIT REACHED!

This week I’m pulling out all the creative things and linking to some of my other creative’s to give you a plethora – yes, plethora of ideas🥳

Past Creative Ideas on the blog::

Grab your colored pencils, turn on a playlist + color. With extra time in my day I finally caved and bought a calligraphy book to learn some pretty writing. I’m a lefty so that always adds an extra challenge when I try writing purty things.😆 If I can write a pretty quote by the end of this Stay Home Order I’ll dub my lessons a SUCCESS!
