A Long Time Friend

Hi all again,  =)  Here is my second post, and a special one at that.  This is a pocket letter that my mom asked me to make for her friend of 40+ years.

I used a Mo image "summer sisters", and colored them with Copics and PMS.  Of course I used my CS, and have added some close ups.  Thanks again for stopping by, it means the world!

Here we go....

Hi Everybody, hope you're having a great one.  This is the first of two post today.  This PL went to a friend just north of me.  I used one of my own images from DDS days and colored her with both promarkers and copics.  I've added some close ups, but I used my cameo on a lot of the pocket projects.

Thanks for taking the time out of your day and stopping by.  Ok, so here we go...

To A Good Home... =)

Morning, morning, morning...

The one thing about these pocket letters is that you must (or at least should) wait until your recipient gets it before you post it.  I'm never sure if I'm more excited to receive or send, but either way the anticipation is over the top! 

Now, as I write this post, I'm questioning what is it about these pocket letters that is drawing them in by droves.  For me, it's that they have a purpose and a good one.  You know you are doing something specific for someone, and (you pray) that it puts a BIG smile on their face. 

Anyway, this next pocket letter was done for a gal that just bubbles with personality.  She has a super cute blog, with tons of cuteness throughout.

So here we go.....

My Favorite Pocket Letter So far!!!!!!

Good Morning, & Happy Friday,

This is the first time I've been asked to create a "themed" pocket letter, and (to be honest) I wasn't sure how I would do.  It turns out that this one is now my favorite, not only because it's about our Lord and Savior, but because I was able to express my love for God in a way I didn't think possible for me. 

I've included a few up close photos of some of the things I handcrafted, and although they may not look it, they all were pretty easy to make.  Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by. =)

So, here we go......

All Handcrafted Pocket Letter

Hi and good morning everyone!

This is probably going to be a bit lengthy, so I apologize in advance.  There's just a lot to tell. =)  This is a pocket letter I did about 5 weeks ago, but I could not post it, until it was received allllllllll the way down under in Australia!! 

This PL went to a very talented lady, and I just knew I needed to step it up several notches, as she makes EVERYTHING!!  Be sure to check out Kimi's blog ( Unique Scrappiness).  She has tons of inspirations, tutorials etc., and is a MUST see.

Okay, so here's the PL, and a little about some of the pockets.  I added a few close ups, so you could better see some of the pockets.  The Corset was created with my Cameo (LOVE that thing!), and I added some shabby chic crochet lace (not sure if that's what it is called).  The Trellis was super easy to make, and I used quilling paper to make the little roses.

Because of the small size, it was easier to hand stitch around the heart than use a sewing machine, and I used some stash to make the stick pin.

I didn't think I was going to be able to pull the "shaker pendent" off, but with the help of a Tim Holtz pendent blank I was able to.  I just typed out the words and used my 1" circle punch and glued it to the rim of the pendent frame.

The idea of the umbrella and gloves came from all the little pretties I see in the mini houses being made.  I used felt to make the gloves, material and wire to make the umbrella.

Happy Mail!!!

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share the last few pocket letters that I've gotten from some very creative PLPS.  I meant to upload these as they came in, but I hit a bump last week.  We lost Britches (you can see him on "my animals" page) due to an enlarged heart.  We had him for 15 years, and will miss him always.  I want to smile when I think of him, so on to happy things.

It's so much fun to see all the different styles, and then to find wonderful goodies and treats in the pockets.  Such fun!  Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day and stopping by.
