I love love love getting letters and cards in the mail.
It's the greatest thing that sadly not very many people do anymore:(
But my mama... ??
She writes the BESTEST cards and letters and I save them all!!
It's not just her gorgeous handwriting that I love, it's HOW she
writes. She ends sentences with eh? and no?
and writes words like-
"I would be glad to give birth to you again..."
"I will pray to the Lord Jesus for you as long as I live..."
"...there are many beautiful memories to bring to mind, and
that tell us that everything is worth our ups and downs."
Well I decided I wanted to pull out some of those letters and
I bought this frame from Hobby Lobby and the rest of the stuff I had.
This is literally like a 3rd grader craft.
Kinda matches my math skills!!
Anyway, I stapled some string across the back then spent more
time than necessary cutting little pieces of tape to put on
these tiny (adorable!) clothes pins:)
Easy as it gets people! I added some pieces of gold tissue paper for funzies:)
I praise my sis in law for teaching my sweet nieces
the art of a thank you!! I keep theirs too:)
Oh! and in my craft hoard I came across this lonely
shadow box. I used some paper that I already had,
and filled it with 2 shells that my hubby found on a
surf trip to Morro Bay:)
Then I looked around this little place for a home for these frames...
and whaddya know?
I found one:)
Rio painted that whale and turtle for me before we moved here,
and that frame with the green card in it came from my sweet
I'm heading to AZ to spend some time with my precious Mama, and say a heartbreaking goodbye
to my sister who's moving to Australia:( :( :(
Look who's begging me to smuggle him in my bag... :)
