Thank you note number 1 is going out today! Today’s note used Flora & Fauna sets Oh Hello Friend & Texture Two. No dies this time! I stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide & Lawn Fawn Jet Black inks. Added a little glitter with the Tonic Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen. Fun & quick & feeling thankful 😍
You know how every once in awhile you read something & it just all makes sense? Well that’s how I felt reading 365 Thank Yous by John Kralik. I’m not even sure how I came across this book but from the first page I loved the message. It could be because he reminded me a bit of my lawyer dad or that I have always loved mail, letters & handwritten notes - but I am stepping up to send at least one thank you note each week. The author had planned 365 in a year but we all know that as crafters our cards are going to be hand made & cute so I’m giving myself some prep time 😍 Remember when in doubt send a thank you note. No one is ever upset to receive a card in their mailbox. ❤️
I have read all of Meg Wolitzer's books & couldn’t wait to read The Female Persuasion. If you have not read any yet, I suggest The Ten-Year Nap as well.
Point Loma High School baseball recognition dinner Bali Hai restaurant. Can’t believe the season is over! Almost summer!
I had a lovely afternoon at Vignettes & was lucky to be able to have Rachel Ashwell sign her new book for me (My Floral Affair). We chatted about the wedding as well 😍 I can’t wait to look through her beautiful book!
Put together a bouquet of English roses & made some scones for “the wedding” ❤️

A favorite stamp from Waffle Flower (Sweets). The little girl & candy are so fun - laminating the candy jar & candy adds an extra, easy element. Paper from Lawn Fawn. Colored with Copic markers.
Walter Andersen in Point Loma is my favorite place to buy my plants. I love to go wander with a coffee. I’ve been going since my kids were babies. It’s so relaxing & inspiring 🌸🌼🌹
Two more great books to read. Loved both & read them so quickly because I couldn’t put them down! Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman & The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce.
Had fun making a birthday card with an older Mama Elephant stamp set. Such a great set! (Tiny Heroes) Used Echo Park paper from their Superhero collection. (Action)
