Building The Little Wooden House At Eden Whispers

Posted on by Guest Author Posted in Inspiration |

I’ve always had a sense that the more simple you can make life, the better. I am a creative, full of ideas and inspiration and I have a brain full of images and pictures. From a young age, I always wanted to build my own little wooden house, something really beautiful that I could make to my own design.
