Crafts and Caffeine Series


Let's dish, shall we?

Grab that ole cuppa by the... handle and c'mon. This series is dedicated to inspiration. You will find inspirational people, social media accounts, ideas, images and SO MUCH MORE!

How about these dyed and dehydrated apples? Do they make you feel a way? Do they give you that insatiable urge to create? That is simply the best feeling. And that, my friends, is what I'm going for.
