Etsy Find of the week.....
I have been looking for new, unique, and fun Etsy shops to share with you, and I am so excited about this one! Beginner embroidery kits, with patterns and designs that are so simple but gorgeous! I love the use of color that they have, and unique modern designs that BohoCraftStudios uses!
I love the brightly colored flowers they design here! I would swap the orange for pink since I am a pink gal!
The blue background and simple daisies are so stunning together!
I love the texture and chunk of the materials she uses in this one!
Upcoming week intention......
Be mindful this week about your energy levels. Take some time and evaluate how you feel after doing activities listed on both sides of the graphic and see what is true for you! Make some notes or journal about it so you can remember what works for your unique self in the future!
Weekly good news to share.....
One of my favorite vacations ever has been visiting the East Coast of Australia and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef. It was a whole new world (she said in the song lyrics from Aladdin!).
I have a soft spot for this gorgeous area of the world, and am so excited to see this good news about how they have eradicated invasive rodents from this small island. The island is now seeing an amazing resurgence of native plant and animal life allowing it to flourish like it should! Doesn't it look gorgeous!
