Lilac Loveliness

It has been about two months since our lilac tree has bloomed.  Oh, do I miss it so. The fragrance gently wafts over you and the pretty flowers make me smile.  Our tree is right outside our back door so I get a glimpse of it every time I come and go from the garage or get something from our back porch.  Lilacs always signal the start of spring and have various meanings associated with the petal color.  The two week blooming period was far too short, but I look forward to seeing the profusion of blooms next spring.  Enjoy!

If heaven has a scent, it must smell like lilacs in bloom. -Victoria Doyle Heagy


P.S. Scratch and sniff photography would be really handy right now.

Crafty Today: Get Well Pop Up Card

Get Well Pop Up Card

Another pop card I made last year for two very special people.  Same steps as this tutorial and I selected all of the doodads from the All Occasion Box Cards Cricut cartridge.  A very cheery, get well card that was well received by the recipients.  I created the card using the original Cricut and now that I have the new Explore Air 2, I might have to try making it again.

I know I have been away from the blog for some time, but my life has had some changes.  Mostly for the good.  I will continue to share my creations and thoughts about crafted living with all of you.  The look and feel of the blog will be changing for the better and I look forward to interacting with you more.  If you are a lover of my photography, then please follow me at on Instagram.  Spring has been quite inspirational here in California so please join me.
