Hi, friend. Happy Monday! How are you? How was your weekend? I hope you’re doing well. 💛
I’m doing okay. I’m still hurting and healing from the sudden loss of my two nephews. Their funeral was on Father’s Day and I got back super late the following Monday. I came home to some of the sweetest cards and care packages. I know I’m such a broken record about the power of the written word, but it really is true. I can’t tell you how emotionally uplifted I’ve been by the kind words and actions of others.
I took some time last week to write some thank you notes and cards to friends and family. It was healing for me to get those words on paper and to let them know how grateful I am for their prayers, their sweet words, and the abundant grace they give me.
Over the past few days, I’ve made a bunch of cards from Crate Paper’s “Wild Heart” collection. I listed 20 of them in my Etsy shop today. I really wanted to list some cards individually (outside of a Happy Mail Kit or a Pen Pal Kit) and I love how they turned out! They’re so summery and tropical and FUN! I had a good amount of scrap leftover from making each card and matching envelope — so I made a coordinating bookmark for each one. I’m having a really hard time staying focused long enough to make a dent in my summer reading list — so, I hope these cute bookmarks prove a good motivator for summer reading to everyone who uses them.
I hope you have a wonderful week and send someone some sunshine in the mail! ☀️ Take care, friend. 💛
