I can't believe I have been so negligent on my blog. I think about writing on it every day... but then I get so busy, I forget to post.

I have a small "business" called Heather's Paperie. I sell handmade cards and other items using beautiful papers. I made some Post-It Note holders to sell at work. I really blinged them up with flowers - Prima flowers, or accordian-folded handmade  flowers, rhinestones and jewels, ribbon, chipboard, etc. I sold about 20 of them at work and my husband is trying to sell them at his work. I really like how they look and for $5.00 - they are a steal!

I also made sets of notecards - 4 cards with envelopes - for $8.00. I spent so much time on them and loved the results. I sold only 2-3 sets. Most people say that they don't even send cards anymore! They only email or facebook people. I guess that's why the Postal business is going bankrupt... But it IS expensive to send a letter now - $.45 a letter! That's outrageous. BUT, anyhoo, here's a picture of about 6 sets. I used my Cricut on every one of them.

My favorite cards are the top, middle, pink, set in the picture. I used vintage lace on them, also.

Well, I will post more later...
