I'm still here! I realize I have been rather quiet both on the blogging front and the letter-writing front.

I'm currently obsessed with creating cards for spring and masculine birthdays, combining my collection of new and vintage supplies into pleasing designs, and updating my collection of card sketches (done).

My love-hate relationship with my old computer printer came to an end this week when it finally kicked the bucket. My sweet husband now had his answer for what to give me for my birthday! Thank you!


  1. Run with the creative streak while you have it! Thanks for the V-DAy package.

  2. These are great Daisy! I love the bird cage one great colors and texture! Thanks for playing along with us at CPS this week!

  3. These are both super cute! Loving the fun birdcage on the first one! Thanks for playing along with CPS sketch 254!!

  4. Marguerite! I received your lovely envelope today. Each thing inside excited me more than the next. I'm going to reply immediately but even more urgently I need to tell you that I LOVE John Cusack and have a poster of him from Say Anything in my bedroom. <3

    1. Thank you for making me smile! It's been one of those days...

  5. Wow, lovely work, I like it a lot!!
