Free Hello April Journal Card

When I think of Spring, I always, ALWAYS, think of flowers. 

I'm the kind of girl, though, that prefers wildflower bouquets over store bought, live plants and shrubs over cut flowers and clippings from a friend's garden over all. I had a friend long ago who had a "love garden" of all the plant clippings she had accumulated over the years from friends and family...and I love that idea. 

Here is the coordinating set where you'll find the word phrases and page tabs. I have a whole section in the shop devoted to instant download journal cards and here are the Tags Tabs + Labels.
And you can find more travelers notebooks in the shop, I'm using the A6 size and this is the exact set. It even has an embellishment kit available as an add-on to jump start your crafting adventures.

Dandelion Wishes Card

#Dandelion Wishes #dandelion #cardmaking #card #I Made A Wish #make a wish #romantic card

It’s been on my heart to share {in words} how grateful I am for G and our life together. He is my everything.

I haven't been lucky enough to commit 31 minutes each day this month to a creative endeavor, but yesterday the inspiration for my #31minutesfor31days project was a quick card for my sweetie. 

Oh hey, did you get a chance to see my other 31 minutes projects?

I Made A Wish and You Came True. Awwwwwww. Too corny? I hope not. It’s been on my heart to share {in words} how grateful I am for G and our life together. He is my everything.

After printing off the journaling card set, I trimmed my card to mimic a shipping tag, popped on a rectangle label and trimmed off the excess, punched a hole and tied some waxed twine into a bow. All I  had to do then was attach it to the front of my note card and I was ready to write!

Quick + Easy!

Free Hello Spring Card

Oh how I love the changing of the seasons. After all our rain, everything has begun to green and sprout and the sun is shining and the birds are chirping and life is good.

Of course, that means that the weeds are popping up, too, so I've been outdoors quite a bit pulling weeds and straightening up the flower beds. Even thought it's a lot of work, I actually enjoy spending time in the garden.

What will you be saying hello to as Spring greets us on Wednesday?

Kind Words Encourage The Soul

#The Sunday Quote #kind words #good words #encourage the soul #kindness #quotes #quote #encouragment

Oh how an unexpected kind word can rock my world. Each and every time. And when it is unexpected, it's truly amazing how my whole being reacts to those few words. A smile. An acknowledgment that I matter. It's all good.

Be the one that encourages someone's soul today.

For the last several years, I have curated the Sunday Photos series, featuring one my photographs  along with a quote or some inspiring words that touched my heart. I'll still be sharing words that speak to me in this space each week, just in a new format.

See you next week with another The Sunday Quote!

31 Minutes for 31 Days

My March has been filled with sweet little peeks of sunshine through the clouds on rainy days, daffodils popping up, periwinkle blooms reminding me that Spring is almost here, daylilies beginning to sprout their green leaves and dogwood trees forming their buds.

I do love how a Spring garden unfolds, don't you?

I've been working to carve out 31 Minutes for 31 Days, doing a project that is on my list of things to do AND that makes me smile. Nothing earth shattering, just being aware of taking the time to slow down and do something not business related.

I Organized Some Crafting Supplies
Okay, so this was more for my peace of mind and sanity and was more business related than personal, but a girl who works from home has to do what she can to keep her in-home office neat and presentable. When your family tells you it's a little messy out in the studio, you know it's time to do something.

So, even though this wasn't entirely for me, it brought me joy!

I Journaled
I'm doing a couple of different listing challenges this month and decided to do some watercoloring for a few pages, using some Stencil Revolution stencils. I can't wait to try using the full Home Sweet Home design on a larger project - coming soon!

Here's a post where I share more watercolor + stencil adventures and more Travelers Notebooks.

I Crocheted 759 { not really} Granny Square Circles
As I was in the middle of the Great Craft Studio DeClutter and Clean Out, I found all these colored crochet rounds. So, I went down the rabbit hole of Pinterest pins trying to find the Granny Square pattern that matched up.

I'm still not finished with the squares, but the rounds are completed. Don't you love a Granny Square that begins in the round? Here are a few more crochet posts.

These began as a way to use up all the little yarn ball scraps I had left over and then just exploded from there. I'm trying to decide whether to mix up the yarn colors for the square part: match the center color or different colors or all the same color no matter what color the center is.

What would you do?

I Read All Afternoon and Did Not Feel Guilty
I don't usually read on my Kindle, but who can pass up good reads for free with Amazon Prime Reading? I really enjoyed this one and couldn't put it down. Well, I did to cook dinner, but I pretty much really all afternoon.

Here are a few What I'm Reading Now posts.

I Played with Paper
I love coming up with new ways to use products. Read more about this project here.  I used some journaling cards and tags from the shop. 

I Gardened
That's just a fancy way of saying I raked leaves and pulled weeds. And this Mama is sore today, let me tell you. I can definitely feel my years creeping up on me after an afternoon spent working in the yard. I'm not as fast as I once was and the stiffness sets in by nighttime. Yikes.

When I remember I've been over at @iloveitallshop, with the hashtag #mw31minutesfor31days.
