Stars of Hope

Trash to Treasure. The manilla colored stars are punched from an old ledger card and inked with Creamy Carmel. The blue star is a piece of watercolor paper where I'd stamped the Jeep from Hit The Road onto and it wasn't clean enough for my tastes. (the rear tire was splotcy). I brushed Royal Blue reinker over it and LOVE that you can still see the stamp under it.

The rest of the paper was in the scrap bin. I love taking pieces of "trash" and making something cool out of it. Morgan named it "Stars of Hope" because we picked up pieces to make it and that's what we are doing at home too: Picking up the pieces.

Lots of changes going on for us right now. As of today, I am unemployed and I'm ok with that. We'll figure out all the stuff that goes along with losing half of a two income household. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy the time with my family.

We went out and scouted hiding places for a lovely fairy letterbox sent to me for planting. It's going to be paired with my Hobbit door stamp. Hopefully it'll be a magical mini-series.


  1. Praying for you as you "pick up the pieces" -- the card is a great metaphor! Take care, Tee.

  2. Love the new look on your blog!

  3. This is so very cute Tee.. you're just so talented!
