I have persistently had the saying ‘April showers brings May flowers’ stuck in my head for weeks – so I rolled with it!

Though blue is often a gloomy color I didn’t want to reflect that this month given the current state of the world. There is enough gloom to go around so instead I wanted to send the promise of full sunshiny future. All things must come to pass. All of us are quite eager for this virus to do the same.

In typical fashion as well this month features a fun recycling of security envelopes! In case any of you have some bills or junk mail lying around there is a good chance you have a pile of free craft paper. I love the variety of patterns I find in these. There is always enough material to get a few flowers out or maybe even a gift tag or two.

With all of these extra free time we’ve found ourselves with I hope some of you have gotten the chance to catch up on the good-ol-fashioned hobby of reading. Thus, this package also includes a cute lil’ DIY where you can decorate a bookmark with some of these security envelope flowers I’ve sent along!

Until next time, I hope this small treat provides a temporary reprieve from the chaos.

All the best,
