Welcome to Serenity Lane Designs.  My name is Diane, and I am the sole-owner and creator behind Serenity Lane. 

I have been crafting and creating for easily 20 years.  The medium of the projects has changed some over the years, and I like to try new things. I started Serenity Lane officially July 1, 2011, but the idea had always been in my head.  We used to live on a road called Serenity Lane, and I always thought that was such a quaint and cute name.  As I mentioned, I've always loved to craft, but while living in that house, my love for rubber stamps began.

I began making handmade cards, and scrapbook pages.  Eventually I began stamping other items, like tiles and candles.  I also love to craft with papers, and a few years ago my husband bought me a Cricut for Christmas and my love for vinyl and more paper crafts took off from there.

Many people have asked me how I came up with the name - Serenity Lane, and the significance of the pink Gerber daisy.

The pink Gerber daisy has a special meaning for me.  In the spring of 2010 I was asked to lead a women's spiritual life retreat.  The theme I choose was "No One Can Take Away Your Joy".  In doing research for the retreat, I learned that the Gerber daisy symbolizes cheerfulness and joy, and the color pink symbolizes - in the Christian sense, joy and happiness.  I adopted these symbols and used them in the retreat.  My mom went on this retreat with me, and a week after the retreat she got very ill. She spent 2 months in and out of ICU, and we were told her disease - Scleroderma, was finally going to win her almost 30 year battle.  My mom passed away 6 months later.  Mom and I were close - I "dragged" her off to retreats and outings, shopping and adventures all of the time.  The one I led was our last "outing" together. The scripture I focused on for the retreat took on new meaning for me (John 16:22 ~ Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.).  The pink Gerber daisy symbolizes many things for me - the joy and happiness crafting brings me, and a special way to remember my mom, and knowing she would love that I've stepped out and started this new adventure.

So -- welcome to Serenity Lane Designs!  There are so many things for you to check out.  I love to do custom orders, so please feel free to drop me a note and ask for a custom order.

I've also had the honor of appearing on ABC's The Chew.  It was an exciting adventure for me.  I was able to craft with the hosts -- you can check out the story, pictures, and more on my blog if you'd like.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my creative journey's story - and remember . . .no one can take away your joy!
