home..is where my hearts are…

…it’s true!!

everything that i love is in the pacific northwest…all of the natural wonders and beautiful physical places that i placed on the clubs and the spades…and, all of the activities,  adventures,  and experiences that i placed on the diamonds and hearts. 

it’s interesting to see which activities, adventures, and experiences ended up on which suit…diamonds or hearts. because some of the things that i hold closest to my heart and remember fondly, ended up on the hearts.

i really enjoyed working on this project! the subject matter is pretty special to me…home. i don’t know if my friend will ever see her birthday “list,” but it’s hers now, if she wants it 🦄. it’s six days late, but hey, happy cinco de mayo.

it’s imperfect like me. it looks like a child made it, as perhaps a gift for mother’s day. my workmanship and penmanship, while not the best, contribute a feeling of childlike wonder and appreciation for all things pnw, as well as gratitude for friendship.

tomorrow, i will scan everything and post crisp, clear images…then, i will post them. tonight, i’m going to explore options for packaging and see if i can shuffle the deck. happy belated birthday!! may you enjoy many good years and experiences in the pnw…
