Christmas card layout

Every year I take the cards that I receive for Christmas from family and friends and make a lay out with them.

I also make a page with the stamps, return addresses and air mail stickers.

This is this years pages.

Valentine Treats

I decided to make Valentines chocolate gifts for the staff at work. I love how these turned out. Then I decided to make something for the kids. I work with all but 2 classes this year, so that is a lot of kids. when I finished I had about 150 little chocolate gifts. Then I thought that it would be better to use these as a fund raiser for the school. We have a Winter Concert coming up next month, so it would be a perfect time to sell them. I think I can ask $1 each, and hopefully we can make $150.


I've been finding joy in making boxes, lately, here are a few.

Happy Birthday Dad.

On February 3 my Dad will turn 82. He is the only one from his own family left. His parents, step mum and both sisters died many years ago. His wife of 51 years died 4 1/2 years ago, and he now shares his home with Lucy, his faithful dog. My 2 sisters visit him weekly, my brother makes it there when he can, and all that I can do is call him once a week. We talk for about an hour, and often he has very little to tell me about, but I try to fill in the gaps with memories of old times, or stories of my kids at work.

So I made a card for him and will put it in the mail tomorrow.

Happy Birthday, Dad.
