I learned the other day that one of my very good college friends is moving from Colorado to St. Petersburg, Florida, at the end of May. That means that he’ll be living just 16 miles away from me, right across Tampa Bay. That’s a lot better than 2,000 miles!
He’s a great guy, and I’ve really missed him. I’m absolutely thrilled that he’ll be living so close to me.
The negative side of the story is that he’s leaving Colorado because he and his girlfriend — who I’m also close to and I also miss very much — just broke up after many years. Break ups are never easy, but they’re both such amazing people that I know they’ll eventually be okay on their own. And for completely selfish reasons, I’m glad he’s chosen to start the moving on process just 16 miles away from me!
Now if I could just get all my other friends who are spread across the country to move here…
Last weekend, I didn’t just make bibs and aprons. I also made a set of four Golden Delicious note cards, similar to the ones for sale in The Boutique, for M’s custom order. The set comes with matching homemade self-sealing envelopes.
I love making the envelopes. I use double-sided fusible web to adhere the seams closed, which means those suckers are secure.
I’ve been sewing so much lately that I’d forgotten how much fun it is to work with paper.
