Things have been a little hectic around here the past little while.
I had some sad news a few weeks ago; my dog Bailey, who lives at home with my parents passed away on July 19th. Bailey was 13.5 yrs old, which was very good for the large breed she was (Labrador/Golden/Chesapeake Retriever Cross). Bailey passed away peacefully in her sleep, at home.
I took this picture at Christmas time; she loved to be outside, sit in the snow and bury her face in it. For anyone who has ever lost a pet, it’s a terrible thing. It’s been tough, but I am getting better.
I travelled home to go to the cottage last week, it was very strange to be in the house without Bailey. Terrible, actually. I kept thinking she was just downstairs, or outside, or around the corner.
We went to the cottage for a week- a planned vacation every year- which turned out to be good timing. I was busy visiting with the other families, reading, playing with paper and was occupied, thank goodness.
I finally had some time to make the mini envelopes and I’ve got a few up in my Etsy store now. I’ll be adding more, I was able to make over 200 envelopes at the cottage.
Cutting, folding and gluing the envelopes was surprisingly therapeutic.
The envelopes are available in a variety of colours and patterns, in matching sets of 8, 10 or 12. I’ll also have some mixed bunches available too. I’ve used envelope adhesive on the flaps so they can be sealed just like regular envelopes.
I hope all of you are doing well.
Ciao for now,
