A Little of This and a Little of That

I’ve been up to a little of this and a little of that.

A little bit of sewing...

A fabric postcard.

Then, I’ve gotten hooked on making these keyring wristlets.

I have quite a bit of ultra suede pieces that I purchased years ago when it was much more reasonable to purchase.  So it makes for a nice durable wristlet.

Then, I’ve sent out some mail...

It seems like it’s been awhile since I’ve sent out some mail art envelopes.  Even just a bit of quick stamping changes boring mail into fun mail.

Sheila had a birthday.  Happy Birthday Sheila!

I did a little roasting and salting of pecans.  Once we reach a certain age and condition and life style, we appreciate edibles more than things.  These are a favorite of my special Valentine.

Of course a little pocket tag was needed.  I added a short letter into the pocket.

There’s my variety of little things that all went out through the mail to make very special people smile.

Although, I have SO many keyring wristlets still!  And I still want to make more!  Where to give them away???

Calendar Journal 2019

I’m enjoying my new process style for my calendar journaling.

I keep telling myself to get more creative with the journaling part, but it seems there is always something more pressing to get creative with.  Most times I’m lucky just to write in the block.

Several months ahead are ready for filling in the days doings.

I’m glad to have found a good home for the Tim Holtz Paper Dolls.

I’m perfectly happy getting some use of my rather extensive Washi Tape collection.

I sure hope July doesn’t all of a sudden show up and I’m not ready for it!  It could happen...times flies by so fast when you aren’t 5 years old anymore.

Another Mini Booklet

I couldn’t wait to make another little I didn’t!

They’re so stinkin’ cute and so fun to make.

I even pulled out a previously not used die cut from my newly organized little ephemera keeper booklet.  

Now being old people, we have a lot of pharmaceutical and medical bills to keep track of for tax deductions.  After I spent 2.5 hours sorting last years expenses, I knew what my next little booklet would be for.

The little pockets will hold those little pharmacy receipts.  And I will list the various medical expenses each month on a separate little sheet of paper to tuck into the pocket as well.

Then next year this chore will be a snap.

I’ve just let the scrapbook papers do all the design work.  I mostly just did die cutting and some careful tearing and taped it all together.  Score Tape is fabulous!
