Holiday Weekend Playing Catchup

My sister came over from Ft Myers and we had a nice visit catching up with each other's lives. After she left I caught up with some projects: made a waitress apron for Grace; cleaned up some of the creative mess in my sewing room and prepared for my notebook cover class next weekend (see my "Quilt" page for some pictures) at the quilt shop; I even did some mending for Grace.
Next on my list was finishing my charm swap -the theme is "Flowers" - before the Mar 1 deadline. Not only did I finish them, but I also created the packaging using some lettering techniques that I learned from taking Joanne Sharpe's "Letter Love" online class. I have enjoyed the daily inspiration from her class and from our facebook group. There are so many talented people taking the class. The class has daily instruction for the month of February; Joanne is on Day 20 and I am on Day 4. Work has a way of getting in the way of my fun. I am going to create a new page for my website to share my love of lettering.

Stamp Fest in Clearwater

We had a wonderful weekend in Clearwater. The weather cooperated; it only rained at night because I remembered to pack an umbrella and my raincoat. There wasn't much new at the show in the way of products and techniques, but we had a wonderful weekend of shopping and friendship.
