Being crafty in my pantry after spending a hot afternoon cleaning it! Ugh - ants 🐜Why can’t “people” put food in the plastic container? Why are there always at least 2 boxes of the same cereal open at the same time? Mom issues 😂
If you ever wonder whether your kids will like their scrapbooks as they get older 😍 Kevin sharing his books with his girlfriend. So happy I scrapbook.
Stamp organization has become embarrassing & more work than I anticipated! 😲 Using massive amounts of Avery Elle stamp storage pockets! Good thing Patty is a detective & can identify my old stamps from photos I send 😂
I’m curious as to other readers opinions about the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. I read an article in the Wall Street Journal that her books are being removed from suggested reading & her name has been removed from an award. I loved these books growing up. I know what the controversy is but I also wonder at what point do we worry that we are going to erase too much?
Here’s a link to a another article:
Three more great books. How Hard Can it Be by Allison Pearson, Number One Chinese Restaurant by Lillian Li & You Think It, I’ll Say It by Curtis Sittenfeld.
Sharing a birthday card using Mama Elephant “In My Heart”, “Pix’s Favorite” & Lawn Fawn “Happy, Happy, Happy” & “Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames”. The card is stamped with Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black on watercolor paper & painted 😍 Colored Lawn Fawn inks were stamped when the card was dry.
Another thank you note sent out! I’m making these easy, fun & not over thinking them 😍 The person who received this actually sent an email thanking me for the card ❤️ Used Lawn Fawn “Wish You Were Here” set for image, Mama Elephant “Pix’s Favorites” sentiment, Copic markers & Tonic Studio's Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen. I used a tiny dot stamp from one of my sets as an accent between my lines.
Spent yesterday morning hunting at an estate sale! So much stuff! A good place to find sales in your area is estatesales.net. Happy hunting!
Lots of good books to share! An Unsuitable Match by Joanna Trollope (always love her books!), Halsey Street by Naima Coster (her 1st book!), Goodbye Friend by Gary Kowalski (dealing with loss of a pet) & The Art of the Handwritten Note by Margaret Shepherd.
