Creating Cards & Mailing...
I have been using my random supplies to create some cards, envelopes and postcards. I mail so many each week and my stock was running low. I like to have a variety to choose from when I am doing my Random Acts of Kindness and other weekly mailings. You never know who or what or why about the person until you receive their information and I like to select something appropriate for each. My Grandmother always said I choose the best cards. That was long ago when I bought cards and Grandma wasn't able to get to the store and she would have me select cards for her friends.
Fortunately I had everything I needed in my supplies. You all know I am trying...really trying to downsize. So, after donating tons of my supplies, I realized I still had lots to work with. I had so much fun pulling out a baggie of letters and then forming them into fun cards. I had to get creative so when I had no L, I used the exclamation and as you can see above I think it looks fun.
I have already mailed several out to people. And...if I happen to use all of these cards...Well I do have more supplies! Shocking what an amount of supplies one person can hoard! Yes, that is what I do. I gather and I save. Hoard is such a harsh word. I might be a Boarder Hoarder...just on the line of enough vs. too much. I do hope you are laughing or at least smiling. With all my downsizing I am definitely not hoarding stuff. I am sentimental and have some things I can't let go of...yet, but I am working on myself. Mr. C is quite the opposite and can throw everything away...in the trash. I truly must guard my stuff!
August is here and going quickly. Too quickly for my likes. This week we are having some wonderful mid-80's temperatures. Not as triple digit hot as it had been for over a month. I have been getting up very early and going outside to hand water and keep those weeds tidy and picked up.
On the home front, I am very grateful for all of your encouragement. In the meantime while NO one is looking or offering to purchase our home, I remain positive and patient. I am enjoying my home and property and will continue to do so as long as I am able to do so. Having to live like no one lives here is exhausting but I am able to make cards, envelopes and postcards on my wonderful studio table and then clean it all up. I won't be doing any long term messy projects or sewing because it is all packed up but at least I can enjoy something creative and useful. Now I better get back to purging stuff and downsizing other supplies.
