City Crafter - Guest Designer !!


I am so very excited to be the Guest Designer this week at City Crafter Challenge !! I have played at this challenge blog A LOT - and the lovely ladies who make up their design team are wonderful !!

Kirsty has chosen the city theme of Seattle, and some coffee cups as inspiration.

I love Seattle ! In fact I lived in Bellevue, one of Seattle's bedroom communities during my high school years.

This is one beautiful city - water to the right and water to the left, floating bridges (much more scary to look at than to cross, honestly), the Space Needle, Mount Rainier, and so much of the old city has been saved. Of course, everyone thinks of the rain !! Yes, it does rain a bit in Seattle, but in actuality, Portland Oregon gets far more rain each year and somehow escaped the bad reputation.

Part of why I love the rain so much is that I grew up in Vancouver BC, and then Washington - and when it rains it takes me right back to those beautiful incredible places.

Coffee - of course, one of Seattle's most notable industries !

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week, and take a few minutes to head on over to City Crafter and play with us !!
