I am a wife, mother, sewer, doodler, gardener, painter, teacher and collector.
I love simple lines and natural colors. Autumn days and camping nights. Vintage, well loved objects and good music. Walks in the woods and the smell of fresh bread in the oven. My faith and my family. My husband and I homeschool our six (yep, 6) kids and glean much inspiration for our learning and living from the natural world around us. Welcome!
I’ll put the kettle on.
My great-great-grandmother was a wife, a mother, and a poet. Her name was Marie Louise Smith Edgar (1851-1946) and it is one of her handwritten poems that makes up the background of these little bookmarks.
I have digitally collaged one of my watercolors over it (A multi-generational collaboration of sorts.) and added one of my favorite Einstein quotes. I have left the back blank for jotting down favorite pages and passages. A set of six, professionally printed, “Noteworthy Bookmarks” comes packaged in a clear cello sleeve. At 2″ x 6″, they are just the right size for tucking into your correspondence or gifts.
