Inspiration Jars

While my daughter was down from Wisconsin for a mother daughter visit.


We created these gifts for friends and coworkers. They are designed around each person and each one is filled with little notes of inspiration. Each day they can take one out and read it and start their day with a smile of encouragement.


Fourth in the Series Quilt Retreat Box Card Set


Quilt retreat for 2016 had two sessions this year,  so I did two sets one for each week. It was the fifth year celebration and the color was blue. I’m a very visual person and blue is out of my comfort zone of colors I like to work with. With that said I think the sets came out pretty well.

I also added a little gift box  for each person who attended as a keepsake for fifth year. For some there was a little something extra in their box, a little beaded scissor fob to adorn their favorite tiny scissors. No one knew who would receive the extra gift for each box contained something. It was fun to watch and see who received them.

These are the little scissor fobs that were inside some of the boxes.

You Make My Heart Flutter

For our 30th. Anniversary, I made this card for my husband. I wanted the card to be simple so that the message would be the focus of the card. Short and sweet was my goal.  As you can see in the pictures I was trying to convey that after 30 years together he still makes my heart flutter.
