Arrived home yesterday from a beautiful week in Kauai, Hawaii. It was my first time to visit this island and what an amazing place for a holiday. If you're seeking a vacation with the most beautiful nature, oceans, beaches and tropical vegetation this is definitely a place to see. You can guess I took a vast amount of pictures at every opportunity I could get. I'll share a few with you here. I'll also be using many of these great shots on products that I sell in my store Shell's Designs, so you'll want to pop by for a visit and see what unique gift items are featuring designs from Kauai. My husband and I did an amazing hike, saw the Grand Canyon of Kauai, went kayaking on the Wailua River, snorkeling, swimming and many other fun adventures. It was a fabulous time together. I think I'll be very busy in the coming weeks writing lens' for squidoo about our trip. Stay tuned...

Well Easter is not far off and I've been creating some cute Easter designs for mugs, magnets, t-shirts, cards and more. Easter is a beautiful day, most important for Christians as they celebrate the Risen Saviour. A few Easter baskets, bunnies and eggs are mixed in there too! However you celebrate it I hope you'll check out some great gift ideas at my store. Shell's Designs

And hope to my heart comes singing
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white
And the Easter bells be ringing."

There are so many beautiful inspiring things about spring... I love to see the new buds opening up on plants and trees, the colourful blooms that start to show their heads. It's such a refreshing time of year! Now that we are heading into spring... lots of Spring Weddings will be happening! I've recently been designing some pretty wedding cards, save the date magnets, cards and postage. Designs from elegant to simple yet attractive. Beautiful shades of mauve, pink, chocolate and buttercream... sounds good enough to eat doesn't it! Come by for a visit and check out some of my latest creations. Shell's Designs
