The Beauty of Creating

Oh the beauty of creating ~ whether it be delicious food, precious handiwork, or sweet memories!   Rather than always planning what or how to create, I am going to try to just simply do it.  I have become a free spirit in my golden years.

I have been creating cards.  I mailed them on Monday and I hope you dear friends have received them.  Here is a sneak peak of the cards I made last week.


It is a pocket card!  It was my first time making this style of card and I had so much fun.  Lots of measuring, cutting, and adhering involved and I am very pleased with how they turned out!

In the hopes of nurturing creativeness, I decided to revive my YouTube channel "Where the Wild Bee Wings".  I hope to post a few times a week ~ chats over coffee, walks in the garden, cooking, and more.  I'd love to have you join me.  You can find my channel  HERE.

Today's video is a Hello Morning with Gina chat over coffee. Sadly, no little something sweet to eat with my coffee but a lovely time regardless.

Blessings.

    1. Robin, I do love to make them. I mostly used the tear and tape (double stick) tape and some Snail Adhesive. I will make a video soon on how to make these cards. I think I will post a video on friendship next.

  3. Love the pretty papers you have used on your pocket card, such a neat design!
    I hope you received my card, my brothers card took almost 2 weeks to get it and he lives closer.

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
