for card making
& other projects
When my kids were little, we used to set aside one morning in the summer to make birthday cards for everyone in the coming year. Back then I actually had a birthday book. We would go through the book month-by-month and make cards for every person. We would put them in a folder with addresses and about a week before the birthday, we would put them in the mail.
make gorgeous colorsWe went to California for the whole summer back then and these are the items I would pack in our box of supplies. I would send the box a week before we left so that it was waiting for us when we arrived. We took luggage too, of course, but items like wetsuits, bed linens, kitchen knives, and art supplies are a few of the things we packed for our 2-month long California adventure.
The first rainy morning of the summer we would pull out our art supplies. Sometimes neighborhood friends would join us and sometimes it was just us. Every year brought new ideas so no two years looked alike. My DIY card ideas stay somewhat the same…you may remember this post. I love these colors right now. We were seeing them all over France, especially the warm shades of gold...love!
