Play Time

It's Sunday morning playtime.. This is what I have been doing while having my morning coffee...My craft table sit's by the window. The sunshine's in and I get this invigorating feeling. It seems that when this happens I do my best work. This card was made with Stampin Up cardstock whisper white and daffodil delight. The patterned paper is from Hobby Lobby free stock. I had the image in my stash for a long time but I am pretty sure it is K & Company. Ribbon was purchased at Michael's.

Peek at my craftroom

Don't you just love hidden storage. These books hold all my bling, ribbon and misc. items.

Hubby picked up the canning jars at a garage sale. They are perfect for my charms, button's and flowers

He also made this spool cabinet which houses a large portion of my 12x12 paper.  It sit's on his grandmother sewing cabinet and to the right is an old dresser  that is designated to item's to be scrap
booked. I have designed a drawer to each member of the family.

Circle letter

Have you ever heard of a circle letter? I first learned about it at A Joyful Chaos. In the Amish community a family for a group of friends would all write a letter's chronicling the events that have occurred since the last letter and holding conversations with each other. The letters would all be added to one envelope. When it arrives at your home you would read the letters and catch up on everyone's lives, take your letter out and keep it, write a new one to add to the envelope and send it onto the next stop. I have joined such a group. Although we are not Amish we all have followed A Joyful Chaos and decided to create our own journey with a wonderful network of women that I feel are becoming a new second family to me. It was hard keeping everyone strait at first so I created this journal. I have a tab for each women and when the letters arrive I write the important tidbits that defines whom they are and sparks my memory when the next letter arrives. I find myself scanning this book occasionally just to keep that happy feeling that is always felt when thinking fond memories of times spent with a friend. If you ever get a chance to join in a circle letter I would highly recommend it.
