No baking, or sewing or growing ...

... happening here. Lots of lovely inspired paper craft though.
I am really quite heavily weighed mentally and to a degree emotionally at the moment.
I'm feeling excited and also a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of moving and buying a home or building as it seems it might be; it is totally foreign to us.
Doing it closely as a part of a couple with kiddies, school, work, day care and a zillion other things to consider is ... draining ... I guess.

My house and routine are suffering. My garden is taking shape slowly and my paper creations are plentiful.


I have seen a few of these around the www. and had an 'I can make that' moment in relation to them.
So I sat down last night and cut, scored and played with the proportions.


Made up a few sweet simple coordinating note cards to fill it with.


here it is complete a little die cut card stock bag full of note cards ready to be sent off to someone special and unsuspecting.

I hope you are having a happy holiday Monday. I have a floor to clean, washing to do and am entertaining thoughts of baked goods ... but not 100% confidant it will happen.

  1. Tammy,
    Your paper creations are amazing. I am in total awe of your talent. I have moved a lot and all I can say is try not to get stressed about it. What is meant to be will be.

  7. Tammy that is gorgeous and it looks great with the cards inside what a wonderful gift. We have had internet issues so i haven't posted anything lately. Good luck with your decision making progress, it is a hard one. We lived in our first house for 18 years.

  8. Take a deep breath. Moves are draining, but so worth it in the end. Hang in there, keep making lovely things!
