Blog Hopping for My Sanity

Hey there peeps! I am in packing hell. I keep reminding myself that it's worth it, but boy, the stress is really getting to me. So, a sanity-saving blog post is in order, and what better way to start the day than with Taylored Expressions?

We were given this bright, pretty picture to use as colour inspiration. I added that to this gorgeous necklace from this week's Etsy Inspired shop and Card Patterns sketch 69. I topped it all off with Discover Your Wings from Taylored Expressions, which is truly both gorgeous and inspirational. I thought it particularly appropriate considering just how much we have been dreaming of this move - and how much we are dreaming that it'll be OVER!

I'm back to packing...we've got the premove inspection today at 3. Have an awesome day!

Love your big, beautiful butterfly! That sketch is gorgeous and you've created a beauty. Hope your move goes well - I moved so much when I was younger that I loathe the idea of moving now! Good luck!
