happy.

Sometimes its the little things that can just make your day.
Like finally (!) finding a typewriter that actually types (even if it took me some serious time and lots of ink on my hands). Then making something (with said typewriter) that turns out exactly like you imagined, so that every time you pull your little homemade envelope out of your wallet, it makes you smile.


Somedays I need to just focus on the little happy things, so that the big, overwhelming things in life don't seem quite so big and quite so overwhelming.
And, come on, doesn't zigzag stitching on paper make you happy in that simplest of ways?

I have one of those that I found at a Salvation Army in Mesa for $25, in near mint condition. It even had the owner's manual and a typewritten note from the original owner detailing it's care. Probably one of the best things I've found while out thrifting!

Zigzag stitching on paper is wonderful. I thank God that crooked stitching is popular for my creations are just that, simple and crooked.

Your cards are perfect!

I adore the style of lettering typed on an old typewriter. Your envelopes are fantastic. You've got me thinking, my mom has an old typewriter just sitting in her house doing nothing....
