Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

I love writing {and receiving} letters...
sending cards snail mail...
creating little sketches on envelopes...
pretty handwriting...
 
and I keep a years worth of handmade cards {and plenty of stamps}
in this little fabric envelope pouch
so I don't have to worry about running out to the stores to find
'the perfect' card.
Each in it's own little cellophane folder stamped with the month.
Each month has a 'theme'
like Winter White January ...
and sentimental phrases
~*~
What really matters ... is You ♥
charms that can be removed from the card and worn on a necklace ...
perfect for using up tiny bits of vintage papers ...
one for a friend who loves to sew ...
Remember
that everyone you meet is
afraid of something
loves something
and has
lost something
~H. Jackson Brown Jr~

What a beautiful idea Deb... and all of your cards are just as beautiful... I love the idea of a little charm on them to take off and wear on a necklace... I treasure every one of my handmade gifts from you!... hope you are over your flu bug... we are getting pounded with snow again... and Tessy and I are missing our Nature walks!... xoxo Julie Marie

Deb,

This is such a wonderful way to express yourself and make others so happy at the same time. Your cards really are a work of art and anyone would be lucky to receive something that came straight from your heart. What a dear person you are!

XO,
Jane
