No Reason Notes 2013: 04/52


My week 4 NO REASON NOTE went to a women who I work with in the children's organization of my church.  She is wonderful, supportive and FUN!  She has made my job much easier with her goodness.
I just stole four of my kids' markers and started doodling around the edges of the envelope.  I went a little crazy, I think, but it certainly is cheery!  I may try this method again with a simple black felt pen.

No Reason Notes 2013: 02/52


My week 2 NO REASON NOTE went to the friend who had a very difficult year in 2012. I have thought of her and prayed for her so much, but nothing reminds you that you are loved and remembered like a real note in your mailbox.

She hasn't received it yet because this stupid square envelope requires additional postage! So I am off to the Post Office today for some smaller stamps to add to the regular ones. Sheesh!

No Reason Notes 2013: 01/52


Well, of course, the very first NO REASON NOTE of 2013 went to the friend who inspired it all, Jenny. I decided to reach back to my scrapbooking roots and cute up the envelopes each week.

First things first: starting a Pinterest board just for beautiful envelopes and ideas. There's not too much out there so I thought I would share some of mine here.

Jenny is my Crafting Soul-mate.  We first bonded over sewing and craft blogs and she is my go-to friend for chatting about quilts.  You can check out her craft blog here....she's a quilting vixen!

I had a square card and an oblong envelope so I was able to sew right onto the envelope and be sure I could still get my card inside.

I stamped this cute Sewing Machine stamp onto a list pad I got at Target Dollar Spot a few years back.  Then I used a circle punch to cut it out.  If something has design or color you love (mustard yellow = stripes = swoon!), think about how you can use it!

scalloped border stamp: from a Japanese stamp shop on Etsy
finger pointing stamp: Martha Stewart
paper tags: My Mind's Eye

other: washi tape, sewing machine, mini alphabet stamps, red marker
