Laura's Sketch 10









Clean & simple, my motto in life. I thrive on zen or simple living. I function better as a mother and a wife when my life is organized, this even comes down to an empty inbox!

This way of my simple living definitely translates over to my creative side, my cards.
Does your personality or way of living show in your creative work?

Here are just a few helpful hints to live the Zen life

Clean your scrapbooking table.
My personal favorite, empty your inbox!
De-clutter your mind, body, and home.

A good start is to clean out one drawer a day:) My good friend Kazan taught me this one years ago!

Our Splendid Design Team
once again outdid themselves this week with their stunning creations!
