The Other Craft, XV


Annyeong haseyo. Are you having lunch right now? What’d you have? I am waiting for my organic, detox tea to finish steeping. I finished off a ramekin of Trader Joe’s Cheese Puffs. I’m not that hungry right now because I had a bowl of edamame quinoa salad about two hours ago.

Kamsa hamnida for your recent pop-in’s. I felt your lifting support for the A Year of Projects 2016-2017 post. Also, thank you for your happy ✽-(ˆ▽ˆ)/✽ ✽\(ˆ▽ˆ)-✽ cheers.

So there’s been more card crafting goin’ on here. This is a thank you card given to a neighbor. Rolling back to Father’s Day…it was insanely hot that day and it didn’t help of course that I had used the oven. Our neighbor surprisingly dropped by that afternoon with her daughter in tow to give us a bottle of watermelon juice she had made from scratch. How refreshing it was! And how thoughtful, yeah?
