Crafty Little Girl, Isn't She?

I just had to show off these handmade envelopes my daughter makes.


She collects previous years' attractive calendars and then makes letter-sized envelopes out of them.


The bottom one in the right hand row shows the back of one of the envelopes.

I received a bunch of them as a Christmas present from her this last year and (cleverly) hinted a short time ago that I was really enjoying using them but that my supply was dwindling.  Lo and behold, she took the (not so subtle) hint (hooray) and this new batch appeared a couple of days ago.

Who needs a fancy stationery store when I've got such a talented daughter?!
