keyword / constellation:

Simple and glorious moments for me come when I just stare up in the night sky at all the stars, admiring creation. I don’t see a whole lot of stars in OC (probably b/c of all the smog 😉 but I’ll always remember driving through Texas and being mesmerized by the star-filled sky. It is awe-inspiring. To me, it reminds me of a creator and how He commands the stars & the sky. So beautiful. Anyway, today’s keyword is constellation! I love all these wonderful star-inspired pieces. Hope you enjoy them too friends :)

So I did a chevron keyword a few weeks ago, which I suppose is similar to triangles but at the same time, different! Lately I am loving this shape… anyone else out there with me? I helped out this lady at her wedding and she was all about geometric shapes and triangles!
