Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

catching up



I like to blog and try to keep things up to date over here. Reading that last post after days away, I think it needed a quicker follow-up. Everything is fine here. It has certainly been a very full and memorable week with its own set of highs (bridal shower and houseguests) and lows (a tragic anniversary, flu and OTC drug reaction [that cautionary fine print on the box is there for a reason]). 

I have fallen out of my routine and the blog has suffered. But the sun's out and the task of the day is to put everything back in place. House, blog, Etsy, etc. Monday, Monday.

I'll have more to show you later in the week, but wanted to share this pretty pin cushion I received in the mail from an old friend. A very special friend I'd lost touch with. Out of the blue, she thought of me as she prepared to move house and home. Such a sweet surprise. Her tiny stitches, the colors she chose and her lovely thoughtfulness. Isn't it beautiful?

Wishing everyone a creative and happy week ahead. Spring is really and truly on its way!
