I’m back! Sorry for the lack of blog posts over the summer. Business was booming and family time was at a premium. With the days getting shorter and the nights getting cooler, it’s time to turn my attention to my creative, crafting side again. It only seems right that my return is marked with a back to school decorative tag featuring Julie Nutting’s Rita doll stamp.
You can follow along as I create ‘Teacher Rita’ in the video below. Materials used appear below the video.
