My lovely friend Eleri (living in North Dakota) says, "We get a lot done when it's still bitterly cold in March."

Linking up to Conversion Diary's 7 quick takes. Are takes this quick even allowed? We shall see.


  1. Love the decorative envelopes! Each year I make my own Valentines. The "love" this year, however, went more into the envelope than the card, as I made those as well out of fabric. My brother, who prefers snail mail to email when corresponding with family, always makes his own fun envelopes. I think you might know him. :>)

  2. Stationary and note cards in themselves, bring me joy but note cards with matching designed envelopes make me swoon. :-) And isn't the news about Bonnie wonderful! God is good!

  3. Thanks so much for linking to me! I'm embarrassed to admit this is the first time I've seen your blog (Bonnie linked to you) and it won't be the last!
