Scrap Travel Card

Still using up scraps and bits. I made another envelope out of an old map to go with this card. It has a more masculine feel to it.

Not a great week health wise, and though I knew in my mind this would probably happen, nonetheless it's rather discouraging. It did help a lot to get 3 packages in the mail, 2 of fun supplies I ordered and a lovely Scrumbles named Nonie. She was made by Mary Jo Oxrieder, who is an artist living in Washington state. I've also purchased Trevor the Fish from Mary Jo a few weeks ago, and he is a bright spot hanging in my studio. Mary Jo is also a friend, and I would encourage you to view her Flickr page and her website. She does such whimsical paintings and all of kinds of other lovelies! 

It's a lovely clear day with a strong breeze from the North, a great way to begin October. And regardless of how I feel right now, I am STILL better off than I was last year!!


  1. Oh I love this one, there's so much to look at. Cool map of the US with the license plates!
    Love you!

  2. hurray for Trevor! :) Looking forward to seeing this card in person!

  3. wow- great collage- I love your pictures and I hope you liked my redwine-rose-postcard you got about postcrossing....Tess/Sonia

  4. Im so glad you are feeling better than you did last year. Being in such a beautiful place just has to help right?!
    Your use of your scraps is great. Since I've started working on my discovery journal I can't seem to throw away any scrap bit of paper! I'm afraid I'm going to end up with tons of it just like I have with fabric scraps! You just don't will use those pieces on something right!
    Take care.

  5. Hey, it is great to see your blog. Sorry that you have been sick, but glad your getting better. Keith and I were in Travelers Rest in June, we wish we knew you were there, we would love to see you. I saw Schaffer's facebook page. Sounds like he's been a challenge, hope he's OK. Tell John hello for us. We'd love to hear from you.
