Last night I was in serious need of crafting. It's been too long since I had free time to quilt, and since I didn't get home from work or eat dinner until close to 8, I decided to do an almost-instant gratification craft. Two of my lovely friends, Karen and Arin, just signed a lease on a bigger store in town, so I'm going to help them celebrate tonight. I made them this card—which I realize is a bit of a risk since selling and making cards is what they do for a living (and also sorry if either of you read this and see the picture before I actually give it to you!)—but I think it captures the spirit of Ephemera, their shop. It's simply fabric scraps adhered to a blank card with Mod Podge (because I continue to be inspired by Amy over at Mod Podge Rocks!). Then I embroidered "congrats" and a little heart on top. Nice to be able to give them a handmade-by-me card and also to feel a sense of crafting accomplishment on a weeknight.
