" One day is spun in gold..
Another day seems red hot or icy cold..
Passing storms clear the air and change the tide..
Each day a new sun!"

A blossoming addiction

I have met some wonderful pen pals via the LYA Postcard Swap :-)

Some of these pals have turned me on to other groups who exchange postcards and hand made greeting cards..

One such group is Love Notes

Another group is Your Heart Makes a Difference

So I've been pleasantly busy making greeting cards in addition to my postcards :-)

These are a few examples....

My recipients know they will get mail from people in our group within a certain time window, but they do not know ahead of time who they are swapping with..

I am grateful to have several communities of pen pals to interact with in addition to my friends and family!

Mother's Day this year was the day that my granddaughter Caroline got christened ..A beautiful event with an awesome celebration afterwards..It was fun catching up with family members I hadn't seen in months!

"Growth is the only evidence of new life.."
~ John Henry Newman ~

I have been following this group of Mallards from the time I met them a month ago..I enjoy watching the changes these ducklings undergo as they grow up..I can't wait until they begin their flying lessons..
