Happy Farm Girl Jubilee

Well ladies,, I am so behind on life,,, and I forgot to check in with you all to see what this years Jubilee theme should be,,

'Sew'.. how about Paper Crafting... Greeting cards?
We could all make several hand made greeting cards and then send them out..
I am thinking,, if we make 3 cards each,,
1- to Mary Jane
1- to a MJF sister
and 1-to a special mystery recipient of our choice.. perhaps a shut in neighbor, a special teacher or Nurse or even a favorite clerk ...

The cards can be re-purposed from old card stock or a card crafted from new supplies...

Then before we mail out the cards in May, we can take a photo of the finished project and share what we created...

As for the recipients of the cards, they can remain a secrete.

I will be home in time to raid my crafting supplies... and can hardly wait to get crafty.


p.s., MaryJane's b-day is in May... oh the fun I can think of for her card... heeheehee!

Like Linda said "it's doable" and I like it. Now all I need is a spark of creative ideas to get it done. I should be thawed out by May. lol

Thanks Grace for posting the theme for our 2021 MJF Jubilee.

Not on a roll but have taken the first step to make my three cards. I ordered card stock w/ envelopes to be delivered later this week, but not looking for it until next week because of bad weather. When I have the card stock I hope to have some idea what I am going to do with it.

Grace, this is a cute idea and something we haven't done before. We all love a surprise card from another Farmgirl!! This will be a fun challenge for me too. Thanks for such a fun idea!

I have lottsa card making stuff and what I don't have... my beautiful daughter has.. she is an avid scrap booker and card maker.. heehee, so I can have an excuse to hang out at her house, with the grand kiddos too!

One of my favorite things to do is, I make my own envelopes (I have a template) and I use gift wrap to line the inside and flap.. makes foe a added touch of cuteness..

I have a friend who does photography for fun and has made cards for me using some of her lovey photographs.. and goodness knows, the internet is full of fun graphics.

O that does sound like fun! I will have to check one of the moving boxes to look for my supplies but since I can't go anywhere it is something to do during this pandemic.

Koolieo... my thoughts were that most of us have something laying around the house to make cards with.

I mentioned how I have used left over gift wrap to line the homemade envelopes.. but I also have made envelopes with gift wrap and then used a complementary sticky label to write the recipient's name and address.

I have also received hand made 'post cards' type cards, embellished with fabric and lacy trims.

Oh what fun to be crafty with bits-n-pieces laying around the house.

In fact, I may peruse through some of my old garden magazinez and seed packets for crafty use in my card making..

Have fun...

Grace, I've settled on my idea and will use wool along with a little of this and that on card stock. I do wool applique so I have plenty of wee wool scrapes. I'm inspired now to make my patterns and gather needed supplies. Thanks for coming up with this project & theme - I'm excited to get started.

Oh Sara,, what a koolieo idea! I have seen some 'wool painting' or what ever it is called.. where the strands of wool are blended to create a scene ...
I can hardly wait to see your creations..

I have dryer wool (lint) does that count as wool??? lolol! ROTFLMBO!

Maybe you can get by with calling it wool fluff.

Well said.

I'm on a roll. Card stock and envelopes delivered yesterday. Pattern downsized to fit card. This morning I printed out the labels for the cards. If I wrote what I wanted to say it couldn't be read - my handwriting has gotten that bad.

Now for the fun part - picking out the wool for each of the three cards. I dearly love to look through my wool stash just for the right colors and patterns.

Gotta get it done before gardening begins in a couple of weeks.
