Inspired by Nature ♥
...We depend on the gifts of Nature,
but these gifts
must be received with
and not exploited or abused.

Blueberry jam making time ...
Nothing fancy, just simple refrigerator jam to spread on freshly baked scones - yum! And the added bonus of spending time in the kitchen with my daughter as we listen to music and talk, thinking up new recipes :-) ♥
Last year my husband & I spent the day at a Butterfly Conservatory.
Being so inspired by their beauty, I found butterflies turning up in my artwork & in gift wrapping.
A present wrapped in vintage dress makers tissue, with some seam binding, a little burlap heart & white button all ready to be mailed.
The Spread your Wings and Fly stamp is by G Studio and is a stamp I use over and over again (birds show up in much of my art work too) :-)
I drew a little butterfly on some heavy stock paper, stamped the entire butterfly with one of my favourite clear Tim Holtz stamps & created little antenna from some copper wire.
A walk amongst nature,
whether by sea,
meadow or wood
for the human spirit
