The Gift



Picture

I have a friend of a particularly generous nature. The last letter I sent her was enclosed in an envelope I made from scrapbooking paper. The first time I saw her after she received my letter she handed me a packet of colorful paper with which I could make more envelopes. What fun! I felt like a kid at Christmas.

Of course I had her in mind when I made the first envelope and wanted it to be special because she had blessed me so much. Two of the pieces coordinated perfectly, one having a sky and cloud pattern, the other sky and clouds withbutterflies. This combination was too cute to resist. I hope she enjoys this envelope's whimsical attitude as much as I do.

In this picture you see the finished result. I see I'm getting better with glue as the paper isn't wavy at the seams like it was on the last few envelopes I made. (And I here I thought I had mastered cut and paste in kindergarten!) Even the simplest things take practice. I find that letter writing itself, though simple, takes practice just like anything else. The more letters I write, the easier it becomes to put thoughts on paper and produce a letter that not only communicates well but may even be enjoyable to read. And enjoyment, dear readers, is always my hope in this letter writing adventure. What's yours?
