Yesterday was a lot of fun! I traveled 30 miles south to my parents' house to visit, have lunch and make a quick trip to Paper Source with Mom for card-making supplies. We are quite fortunate to have within access three Paper Source stores from which to choose! We went usually go to the one in Brookline, MA:
But yesterday we went to the one in Wellesley, MA and it was very pleasant.
I make cards from the amazing illustrations and watercolors my mom creates. I use the best acid-free card stock and creamy text weight paper to make cards from her gorgeous images.
She keeps several journals in which she makes drawings, watercolors and colored pencil illustrations. Since she only draws from life, the journals become a record of the things around her or the view out the window of wherever she is sitting.
The recent snowfall stuck to every branch on every tree in Newton, it was so beautiful! I snapped some photos as little loose snow crystals were flying through the air sparkling like glitter! It was amazing. Lowell was a little colder and so the snow wasn't as wet, it covered the ground but didn't stick to trees, hence no winter wonderland, I'm glad I got to see it.
