Darn that JK Rowling for giving me ideas. Life just isn't complete without owl post and time turners, you know.
This new goodness arrived last week, not magically or surprisingly, but quite fabulously nonetheless.
I started with Square Prints, designed for me
My first card with the set reminded me of my best friend in high school. Her parents' kitchen was decorated with a lattice-pattern wallpaper in bright green and white, and I always thought that was the prettiest kitchen I ever saw.
Do you ever make a card and find that it reminds you of the past? Perhaps the fabric of a dress you wore in fourth grade, or your grandmother's gnome collection, or the lining of your grandfather's coffin?
That last may be too morbid for some of you, but I'm going to a funeral today for the mother of a friend from church, so please don't take it weirdly.
And speaking of funerals, have you read The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books by Alexander McCall Smith? I love how his characters describe the deceased as late. "That lady who is late..." It's never a simple adjective, as in "the late Abraham Lincoln." It's always that person who is late, as if they are just running late to a meeting and will be there eventually. They aren't gone, just late.
That thought makes me happy today. J's mom is now late, but he'll see her again eventually.
Anyway, back to my question. Do you ever make a card and find that it unexpectedly reminds you of the past?
