Today’s Etsy Finds are inspired by one of my favorite spots on earth…Japan. I adore the culture, the landscape, the people and the products. These lovely products will transport us there in spirit today. I want a big bowl of these paper cranes on my kitchen island!

Oh lovelies…how are you this fine Tuesday? I am good (thanks for asking:) but have been pondering a question I’d love your input on:
How do you find the time to play, to create, to experiment?
Time that’s just for you - to explore something you’ve wanted to do.
Sew, paint, learn, write…where do you fit this into life?
Love to hear your thoughts!
all photos from around my craft room of projects just waiting to be begun...sigh.

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend…mine led me to a very long car ride from New Jersey to Connecticut which left me lots of time to reflect. And it got me thinking about family history and specifically genealogy.
Something that my grandmother was always into – and something which I thought was cool to think about but not to display in my home. That is, until I stumbled upon My Tree and Me – a shop that does super cool, totally modernized family trees. And now I’ve started to reconsider their place in the modern home.
I love the wonderful usage of color, strong graphic sensibilities and the way each is photographed in a way that I can totally borrow for my own home. And another highlight? 1% of profits are donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation…a cause that’s very near and dear to my heart.
So now the only thing I’m thinking about is which one I’ll be ordering…soon.
