Time flies…

Filed under: Giveaway — jackie @ 6:40 pm

Good evening dear readers…

I am surprised at how fast the days fly by. Alot has happened here in the southland since I last posted. We got more snow in our area than we have in about 20 years. Normally we get an inch or two or none. A week ago we got nine inches then a week later we got four and yesterday we got about a half an inch. Crazy stuff this weather. I understand you folks to the south of us will be getting some of this white stuff too.

I wanted to show you the gift I made for the winner of my blog giveaway Margaret over in the United Kingdom. It is a letter writing folder. I wanted to make one as a prototype. Below is a photo of the folder closed.

This is the folder open.

It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to set it up. I was able to recycle one of those zippered bags that new sheet sets come in by cutting it up and using the zipper and part of the plastic for the stamp pocket.

I hope everyone stays warm and dry this crazy winter season.

  1. Wow this is wonderful. The internal fabric is just WILD. Very clever to use a zippered bag in it. I’m impressed.

  3. nice prize…wish I checked in sooner. But have been enjoying your blog, even without having had a chance at the prize. Here in upstate Nt upstate NY we have had very little snow, less than usual. It’s been bizarre. But I’m not complaining. As for your question about writing I used to love writing while waiting for the subway in NYC> Now I am up i the country I don’t seem to write much. Instead, I drive. Miss those subways…

  4. Very neat design - I like how you have room for everything. Looks much nicer than the plastic folder I have crammed in my briefcase!
