40 Days of Love

Our church is doing a 40 days of love spiritual emphasis ~ starts Sunday. I have decided to shower a little girl that I sponsor through Child International (AKA Christian Children's Fund) with love. I am going to mail her one little thing every single day for 40 days. These will be cards, ATCs, mini books, stickers, tags, just little things. I'm going to include letters and Bible verses and hopefully remind her of God's great love for her as well as my own. I will have to mail two on Fridays and two on Mondays because our little post office is closed on Saturdays, and of course Sundays. And I don't know what will happen on her end, if things will pile up before they give them to her or if she'll get them each day. I think I'll number them for her in case they pile up a bit.

Handbound journals

I have been making a few handbound journals using a chain stitch on the binding. Here is one I actually sold on Etsy. I love these papers and you'll never guess where I got them ~ wallpaper sample books that I got at a garage sale for $1.00 each. (I purchased three of them.) There are so many gorgeous papers in each one. I love them!
