Hello and happy T Day! I'm sharing a favorite drink of ours for family parties. It goes way back to when I was growing up and my Nana would make it. Nothing fancy here but it goes with our holiday meals nicely, thought you might like to try it. We use a pitcher and fill it with half ginger ale and half with fruit punch, looks pretty in glasses too. Let me know if you've tried it before? To see other yummy drinks and/or cups visit us at Elizabeth's where we get together every Tuesday to share what's new and in our cups. Come by and say hello, it's always fun!
Today I have some fun art to share with you, YAY!! Happy mail came in this week and I love them.
My fall ATC swap came in, so excited about this one since fall is my favorite time of year. I love each single one of these so much. Some of these were from ladies I've never traded with before, YAY! We still have 4 of them being mailed from overseas but she sent these ahead for now so we don't have to wait any longer. Click on the image to see better if you need.
here is a surprise happy mail I got this week. It's a way to use up your scraps, LOVE that idea, right!! You use the big packing kind of tape and put your scraps on it, then another one on top and trim it up to fit. You can make it this size or go smaller. As you can see she used two stamps on this one, it was a bit bigger then she planned. There is a playing card you put in the middle and paint over the one side and write the address on it. Isn't it cool, now for the other side:
Here is the other side, NO SCRAP LEFT BEHIND, love that! She wrote her message and name for me on that little scrap on the right side. I was so surprised and happy to see this, so fun! I'm going to try this once I get some tape. Have anyone of you tried this before? She sent out a few of these surprises and they each looked amazing.
I made another mandala this week too, YAY! These were just from my own yard this week. Loving all the purple ones that are growing in my ditch right now. I found some fall leaves on a walk yesterday and hope to make one for next week. Thankful still that Dawn inspired me to make these.
Hope everyone has had a good week. The weather actually got hot for a couple days and now rain and wind are here. The kids have had and still getting over bad colds/coughing. Can't believe how fast September is going either, trying to soak up each day we can before the nasty winter gets here.
Thank you so much for the sweet comments last week on my mandala and the zentanbles I received. I still love looking at them! So nice getting these little bits of happy mail from all over.
Take care and thank you so much for your visit!
