 ^another one to lauren

^and thank-you cards going to the church for all the giftcards they surprised us with for our new home!



can you believe january is finally over? i'm glad and yet february snuck up on me. last year i had already finished making hand made valentines for a handmade v-day swap and lately i've had no motivation whatsoever. :( 


i have been running though! and i have been learning my way around the kitchen -- which were both resolutions so go me :) 


but seriously, fun motivation, where are you hiding?!


update: so after reading claire's cute v-day post,  i threw on some clothes and headed to hobby lobby {man oh man i'm SO glad el paso has one!} and got some crafting supplies to make hand made cards again this year! as i was telling claire-- it's the day of love and i'm pretty lucky to have some amazing girlfriends. i can't wait to get started on valentines for them and it'll be a perfect day tomorrow since it's supposed to snow. fun motivation, it's so nice to see you again! x

Too bad we couldn't hang out together and have a Valentine's "crafternoon" with lots of paper doilies, pink glitter and heart shaped cut-outs! That might motivate me to make some festive cards too...

PS: Glad you got my letter. The second one headed out on Thursday!

Your mail monday posts always inspire me to write letters! Sending a little love your way in a bit. :)
