Introduction
Bumblebees and Butterflies is where I keep a complete log of my creative journey. Here you will see my shabby-vintage style, the projects I make and hopefully find some inspiration. I love to share new ideas and new learning so my posts are peppered with step-by-steps and tutorials. I hope you stay a while and join me on this incredible adventure and follow my progress as I travel this exciting path. Thank you for being here and please contact me if you have any questions. If you would like to take a class with me, check out my teaching schedule and maybe I will see you there.
