Waxing Poetic {plus a freebie}

Happy weekend, all! Lots to share today (including a little quote freebie by me at the end of the post)…

This week’s team challenge was to add in our artwork a piece of personal poetry or public poetry/quote that spoke to us. Trish, above, used a whimsical vintage quote so fitting for her daughter’s personality! Rachel used a verse she wrote herself…very meaningful.

You can see the remaining of the team’s creations below…love each one!

If you aren’t particularly comfortable penning your own verse, the Internet is full of inspiration. Remember to always give proper credit and use only those available for public use. If you’re unsure, contact the author and ask permission.

Some favorite sites are:

Quote Garden


Wikiquote – multi-lingual

Think exist



Autumn is my favorite time of the year for photography, as well as for designing products…below is a sampling of some of our seasonal products in the shop.
