Zva Creative July DT Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our July blog hop!  We are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today. We hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share!
The hop begins at Zva Creative’s blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 
As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
So I don't know about you but we have had some really nice mornings around here lately. I work out early so I welcome any temperature that is below average during these hot summer months is more than welcome & today was one of those-- 63 degrees baby! It reminds me of fall which is my favorite time of the year.  So in honor of those beautiful 60 degree mornings that we've been having lately, here are a few fall cards...

If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path.  I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
The Blog Hop starts today, July 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, July 29th.
Hidden on FIVE of the blogs along the way is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. All you need to do is leave a comment on one post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win. 
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 30th on Zva Creative’s Facebook page. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva’s page on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!
The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative’s blog. Your next stop is the blog of the wonderful Irene Tan.  Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on August 25th for our next Zva blog hop!

Hello, Hello

Hello friends! I hope all is well with you. You are probably wondering where I have been lately, other than posting my Zva posts twice this year, I haven't been around here much. That's because I've been enjoying my children and the house and all of the things in life that make me a mother. I'm learning that as the kids get older (even though they are in school all day) my life has not slowed down a bit. It's actually been busier. 

So I've cut out all of my design team work.  It was hard to justify missing family time to sit in my craft space to be make cards for someone else. And now that I'm not playing the deadline game, I hope to start creating more for myself and make art that I love again. I'm looking forward to sharing all of that here in the future.

Right now I'll probably be showing you a lot of my photographs of a place where I've been spending a lot of time lately. In May my husband and I bought a piece of land that is nearly 21 acres of wooded land. We will eventually build a home there, but right now we are enjoying just exploring it and getting to know it.  We can't even describe how blessed we feel to be able to own something so beautiful. 

Every time we visit we find something new to LOVE.
