I know, I know: the DIY postcard swap with iHanna is old news by now. But before March is gone I have postcards to share!
This is part one because my Monday is slipping away fast, and I need to get off the computer (as opposed to staying in this chair long enough to edit more photos).
I’ll be back tomorrow with part two. And links. :)
Time for a few catchup posts with some of the art that’s been happening here the past few weeks…
First up, I want to show you this awesome deck of cards made for the Desire to Inspire deck swap hosted by Jessica of In Search of Dessert.
This project was a little harder to finish than I anticipated (mostly due to a family flu swap). But it was also a lot of fun and made for a nice low-key, high fun-factor project.
Most fun of all? Coming up with the sayings on the cards. I used a few from the cards included in Christine Mason Miller’s beautiful book (Love it. Definitely check that out.), but mostly I just made up little sayings as I went along.
Quiet thoughts that came from right where I am. Those words I wish someone would say to me in that moment, or on a regular Tuesday, or after one of those days.
Because, seriously, don’t we all need that? Encouraging words, a reminder from a friend, a boost, some hope and faith, a hand fighting the gremlin…
At one time or another, we all need to be reminded to keep believing.
Just a sneak peek of the WIPs for iHanna’s ever-fabulous post card swap. Have you joined yet?
You can find more post art inspiration here and here and here.
Update: See finished cards here.
