A HUGE Thank you to our February Guest Designer

for being our 
February Guest Designer. 

Here's a little recap of 
she shared with us this month.

Super cute colors for Spring. We just loved how Cristina paired the umbrella with Raincoat Roger.

Perfectly Sweet! Check out how Cristina used the rope for the wishing well and made it into stems to create this petite bouquet. CLEVER!

Brilliant! Christina stamped the top of the wishing well four times and paired it with the umbrella handle to make a unique umbrella image.

Aren't these the cutest umbrellas!

We feel blessed that Cristina shared her talents with us this month. Thank You Cristina!

Next Months Guest Designer is...
Becky Olsen
We are excited to have Becky joining us on the 2nd and 8th of February.
