Fun with Letters


I signed up for another of Teresa McFayden's wonderful crafting ezines. But I've not had much time to do any of the projects. When I'm not studying I am housecleaning or cooking or running around doing errands. Lately, however, I notice that I sleep MUCH better when I quit the books in the early evening and do something relaxing - like knitting or creating something with my hands.

This is what I made the other night - letters that will decorate gifts or perhaps form words to put up someplace visible to inspire me. I just love the times I can spend at my desk puttering away at a project, while my husband reads or works or plays on the computer alongside me.

We find less and less worth watching on the television and prefer to spend time doing something else. Movies, definitely, but television - nah. That said, Sarah Richardson is on tonight and I hope I don't forget to watch her wonderful design show.

  5. I joined that zine this time too! Love all the letter stuff she has. I fixed my comments section to no longer require word verification - hopefully that will solve the problems you were having. Others had problems, too!!!! Oh my there is no word verification on here...problem alert. I'll retry and see if it will go away. I'll copy this comment so I don't have to retype it. ha

  6. Your letters are wonderful! Inspiring! I also love the simple facelift on your china sideboard. Wish I had thought of that!

    I got your epehmera packet today. The French work book pages are wonderful. Reminds me of my high school workbook (which I still have somewhere). I plan to cut apart the phrases and use them on collages and stuff. And the map of Paris will go on a journal or altered book cover. Thank you!
