After literal months of procrastination (and one failed attempt that ended in tears), I got my hair cut! It took a village for this to happen...thanks to Courtney for the recommendation, Sarah for babysitting, and Big N's preschool for the summer camp fun. It was a good experience.
Also, 10 Days, 10 Posts is done! Would love any feedback on the past 10 days of posting. What did you want to hear more of? I noticed I wrote a lot more about daily life, especially family happenings. Not sure what to make of that going forward.
I love to give handmade cards but often find myself cobbling together the right-sized paper and a stray, fits-well-enough envelope from my disorganized paper stash. This gets old, especially since we often need to assemble a card quickly before a special day.
Enter Strathmore watercolor cards. After seeing a pad of blank watercolor postcards at my old job at Common Thread, I've had it in mind to invest in something similar. I finally settled on this set because of the good reviews, quality paper, and value (43 cents a card - take that, Hallmark!).
Even though we just have a cheapie set of watercolors, the paper takes the paint beautifully. These are two cards I made for my dad and Little N made for G. It's been a relaxing way to play around with color, give the boys a new medium to try, and give unique cards without scrambling around to find a matching card and envelope. Do you have any tips for making or giving handmade cards?
