September mid-month inspiration!

Can you believe that half the month has disappeared already? That means it's time for another reveal from our Design Team! But first, a reminder of our current challenge, our "Spring Mood Board", designed by DT member Sophie Koschmann...

You may be inspired by the board however you wish, but don't forget your handmade item!

And a reminder that our sponsor this month is Sawyer's Place.
Don't forget to visit the store HERE and see the amazing products that are available, many of which have been designed in-house and are available exclusively at Sawyer's Place.
This month, 20% of all sales at Sawyer's Place are being donated to Cerebral Palsy support services through the STEPtember campaign - a GREAT reason to shop!
