Enjoy the Little Things - Pocket Letter

  Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by. Today I have another Pocket Letter to share with you. The background paper is from the Sherri Baldy printable collection called 'Enjoy the Little Things'

Sherri Baldy MyBesties Shop

  I love using Sherri's colored printable because firstly I don't have to color the images myself, but more importantly I have arthritis in my hands and it saves me alot of pain in my hands from the back and forth movement in my wrists when coloring the images. It's Win Win!  If you haven't heard of Pocket Letters then I might be exposing you to an incredible new addiction!  It’s a form of mail art started by creator Janette Lane. It's an amazing snail mail trend!

Coffee/Friendship Pocket Letter

Coffee with a friend is like capturing happiness in a cup! ♥
Sharing February's Pocket Letter for the Sherri Baldy My Besties 3D and more Design Team.

I love creating Pocket Art and I love putting together these nine individual pockets of art for friends!
One creates a pocket letter and sends it to their “pocket letter pal” who sends one back.  They are filled with goodies you can take out and use, or just leave as is.  I store mine in a 3-ring binder.
For the background I started out using predesigned and colored printables by Sherri Baldy Designs. Click HERE to see the printable.

Once all pockets are cut out (21/2x31/2) I start to embellish. Most items I use are from my stash/supplies in my craftroom and sometimes I will buy something new to go with a theme I am working on. I forgot to take a picture of the back but I am still working on that. I'm adding fun little things to the back pockets, I included some glitter, sequin, lace, tea bag, chocolate, gift card for Starbucks as well as a letter.

I love making Pocket Letters! The idea behind pocket letters is a cross between a PenPal and a scrapbook. Each individual pocket is an art, a unique creativeness... the possibilites are endless... sometimes I think I'll stop making PL's and then I make another!

Thanks for visiting!

Fun Things to Do (OTHER THAN MOVIES)

So what can you do instead of being a couch potato??
Here's a list of a few ideas. This might be a good challenge for us!



1. Go to an airport, and watch planes take off together.
2. Invite friends over for dinner. It’s a great excuse to try out a new recipe…or clean your house…
3. Go mini-golfing.
4. Play cards!
5. Shop for all the ingredients and bake a pizza together.
6. Write a list of things you dream of doing in the future together.











7. Bring $5 to the mall and see who ends up with the best buy.
8. Take goofy pictures together.
9. Create your own city tour, and visit historic landmarks.
10. Visit the local animal shelter and pet animals. (If only my hubby wasn’t allergic!)
11. Visit the local art museum.
12. Check out the local farmer’s market.
13.Go watch the sun set somewhere lovely.
14. Go to a coffee shop and catch up on life. Sometimes it’s nice to just talk.
15. Hang out at the library and read some books, or pick up some to take home.
16. Become a kid again, and play games at the arcade.
17. Go bowling.
18. Have a water fight! Splash a little water at each other.
19. See a local sports event – even if it’s a school sport.
20. Go for a fun bike ride.
21. Volunteer together at the pound, homeless shelter, or your favorite nonprofit.
22. Try a new restaurant or explore a new place you haven’t visited nearby.
23. Take a road trip to visit friends.
24. Write out your bucket list with each other.
25. Visit a candy store or ice cream parlor, and spend time talking and enjoying sweets.
