my blog banner

So, here's the story that goes with my new blog banner. I was browsing through the thousands of lovely and lively photos that flickr has to offer in search of a photo that would just strike me as the one for my banner. And I found this photo.

I went out on a limb and asked the artist (ever-so meekly and politely) if I could use her photo for my measly little blog and she said YES. I was thrilled to say the least.

It turns out that this woman is a mixed media artist and full-time mother of two living in the UK. I just love stumbling upon pretty things like this and love them even more when I know that they were created by a mother with young children. It's a fascination of mine I guess you could say.
If you're interested in seeing more that this artist has to offer then visit her etsy shop- lusummers and browse her pretty little things.

So now I have a lovely blog banner and yet another craft blog that I enjoy visiting. This is fine by me.
