Wishing You Joy


I’m very happy to here with you to share a “just for fun” Clean and Simple Christmas card.

Yes. YES! The Lane family is excited. The fact that we’ve lived on multiple continents, various countries, all over the U.S.A. and not really having had a lot of snow for the past 15 years has generated great enthusiasm in my children at the snowy forecast here.

In the meantime, here’s a peek at my new (still in the works) craft space.

I hope that you enjoyed your visit and will come back soon.  Click HERE to follow my honeybeelane board on Pinterest.
