In the Garden

Today I’m feeling like I need an escape; a peaceful place to gather my thoughts and tune out the world. I have it in my mind to create such a place in my own back yard, but for now I’ll just have to pretend. Here is a simple paper cutting I finished last month. ItContinue reading “In the Garden”

The other day I decided to finish this tin I started a few weeksContinue reading “Another Altoids Tin”
