Cute Rubber Stamps

I love dressing my postcards
with cute rubber stamps
and sweet little inks!

I'm always on the look out for small, cute rubber stamps to use on postcards I send out.  On one of my weekly look and see trips to Michael's, these cute stamps and ink pads jumped off the endcap and into my shopping cart!  Can you believe it! They were thrilled to come home with me and have been adorning postcards everyday since their arrival! Best part, only $4.99 each, that's a hard price to beat. ;)  Do you decorate postcards you send out?

Happy Envelopes for A Month of Letters!

Paper, scissors, tape and glue
make happy envelopes
ready to send to you!

Meredith & I had a little "envelope making party" for A Month of Letters, so much fun!  We got out papers, stickers, tapes, labels, rubber stamps and anything else that struck our fancy at the moment and created away.  There weren't any rules on how the envelopes had to look, no supplies were off limits, it was just time for us to have fun.   The end result, happy envelopes ready to go for Lettermo!

Seasonal Saturday

Hello Darlings,
You know it's true~
Seasonal Saturday
helps me keep the
holiday Spirit alive
all year through.

I know, I know...Christmas is over-you've finally got all your Christmas packed up and out of the house.  The cards are put away or (gasp) thrown away and you don't want to see or hear any mention of Christmas or the holidays again. 

I get it, I really do but I love, love, love Christmas and (really all holidays) if you happen to stop by here on a Saturday it's likely you'll be getting a big dose of Christmas Cheer all through the year.  Look at it this way, at least I've contained it to Saturday's! :) 

Hugs to all of you, hope you have a fantastic day!

Adorable little couple in love!
