This afternoon, enjoying the quiet of afternoon nap time in my studio - and it's a real studio, not just a desk in the corner of my bedroom - I constructed a wire to hold my favorite ephemera of the moment.
I made these little magnetic clips with double sided tape, tiny magnets, and scraps from Paper Source. Though they are certainly pretty, they aren't strong enough to hold much more than a photo.
Thus inspired and feeling extremely fortunate, I caught up on my thank you notes. Lo and behold, I used the last of the 500 note cards we ordered for our wedding eight years ago. That's a lot of gratitude expressed for hospitality, favors, warm wishes, good thoughts, presents and love.
Even with a tall stack of notes ready to post, I'll never be completely caught up. After all, there is always a reason to be thankful.
