The Virtual Craft Nights are going strong and I am thrilled to be making meaningful connections with fellow crafters and creatives during this new “Stay Home” world we live in. And this week, Wednesday April 8th, will be our first theme night! COLORING NIGHT! Come as you are, bring a coloring page or a blank page to doodle OR you could download this new modern geometric Stay Home page that I created just for this event.
Download here and please use #shortandloud when you post your final piece!
And if you are looking for even more coloring fun, you can grab my No More Negativity Coloring Page as well!

But not seeing all of the movies never stops me from enjoying watching The Academy Awards. I cannot tell you the last time that I missed the Oscars.
