Paper Letters

I come across a lot of crafting ideas that I like to share and give credit where credit is due.  I seem to be promoting someones else’s work more than my own.  That’s ok.   I love to see other crafters work and maybe their ideas can inspire you and some of my own.   Keep on crafting.   I kept the orignal share buttons in this post.  If you like what you see, email that person.   We all like to hear about our work.
