So I'm working on a gift for a certain somebody for a certain upcoming holiday and as I happily worked a basic step on this project, I realized I simply do not spend enough time in my happy place!

I'll share pictures of this project after I'm done and have been able to send it off but for now here's a sneak peek of my project and what my table looks like in the midst of the creative process.
My final thought is, if you have a happy place...find the time! :)
