It seems that with Spring comes a flood of new creative possibilities. With so many options, it’s never easy to choose but always a good problem to have. This month I’ll be taking on a sketchbook challenge, soaking in the sun rays, and making my own pair of sneakers.
If you are in the Seattle area and have creative plans, I’d love to hear. I’m also always happy to receive new craft and culture events to include in the monthly roundup.
