People say thank you in all sorts of ways, I tend to send flowers or write a little card, and I know people who say thank you by treating their friends to cups of tea or trips out. However you do it you just can’t beat a heartfelt ‘Thank you’ to make you feel appreciated.
My husband and I received a lovely thank you last week when our son’s girl friend, who has been staying at our home this summer, left. She made us some cakes and presented us with them on her last morning.
Aren’t they great? Thank you C, it was lovely having you to stay – come again any time 🙂
How do you show your appreciation?
My little artist trading card is slowly coming on, I started by making my autumn tree out of seven hexagons but it looked like a lollipop! So I unpicked it and added a couple more hexagons to give it a more tree-like shape…
What do you think?
I’m much happier with it, just got to turn it into a card now 🙂 .The deadline is in November so plenty of time.
I have signed up to take part in an artist trading card (ATC) swap hosted by Ali at Very Berry Handmade. I made my first one here and enjoyed it so much that I thought I’d do another 🙂
The theme is Autumn and I’m thinking about a little tree made up of hexies, but the trading cards are only 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches so the hexies have got to be teeny tiny. Hmm I’ll give it a go but I may change my mind!
While I was searching for some free templates I came upon this site where you can get hexie templates in any size you want (as well as other shapes too).
These hexies are 0.4 inch which seem to be as small as my fingers can cope with – yes I did try to do some smaller ones but my stress levels went through the roof!
I’m also starting to make another banner for my church, this one is for Advent – the season leading up to Christmas. There will be two of them, mirror images of each other and unlike the others I’ve made these will have a real ‘patchwork’ feel to them
