About Me

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Pocket Letters

Hi all:

Have you heard about the new craze? Pocket Letters!

It's a new way of connecting with people from all over the world or right in your own backyard or even with family and friends near and far.  In essence it's pen pals with a twist!

pen pal
noun: penpal
  1. a person with whom one becomes friendly by exchanging letters, especially someone in a foreign country whom one has never met.

The idea was developed by Janette Lane.  You can find more information about her at  https://www.youtube.com/user/thejanettelane.

I was introduced to Pocket Letters through my crafty friend Vivian B.  After the first one that I completed ...let's just say....I.Was.Hooked. LOLOL.  I was like the energizer bunny....I just kept going and going and going and going!  Before I knew it, I had a binder of 50+.  It really is a great way to use up your scraps of paper, those designer papers that you've been hoarding and embellishments that you don't mind gifting away.

There are even websites dedicated to just Pocket Letters.  Here are a couple so that you can see for yourself some of the ways that people are doing them:

And here are some of the pocket letters that I've completed

Thanks for stopping by!
