A few months ago, I created a fun (and easy, as always) little spring gift project to share on the Pebbles, Inc. blog! Instead of my usual "treat" gifts, I took a cue from Mother Nature for this one.  Here's a look at my finished project.

easter cards | pebbles, inc.

I'm not really an "in your face" type of person...so when I created these easter cards earlier this year for Pebbles, I wanted the Easter theme to be subtle...but still obvious.  The cute bunny paper in the "Spring Fling" collection was the key!  Here's a peek at the set of cards I made.

As always, you can find step-by-step photos of this card project on the Pebbles, Inc. blog! And I might be sharing my card-making secret over there as well! ;)

the gift of words | pebbles, inc.

I believe words are pretty powerful...I believe they can change an attitude, a day, even a life. If you've ever visited my home, you'd know this to be true.  I have words everywhere. Single words, quotes, song lyrics, lots and lots of words.  And if I can make the words pretty...well, that's a win all-around! 
I used the beauty and wisdom from Jen Hadfield's "Everyday" collection to create a few fun projects recently for the Pebbles, Inc. blog:
