I am sorry to tell you that I will be away from my blog for about a week. I hope to catch up with after that. May the Lord bless you this week!
Have you ever admired the old seed packets of long years ago? Aren't they beautiful and nostalgic? They make me think of some little Mother cultivating a bit a beauty around her homestead. Or maybe, they are the inspiration of a once loved, but now long neglected garden surrounding an old Victorian house in a now busy downtown neighborhood.
I have wanted to put some of my garden seeds into my own packages for some time. I have an old version of Print Shop, which I use for everything I do for personal use. It has some really wonderful graphics.
So I went to work, last Friday and found the graphics I wanted, imported them into Publisher, where I had a template set up for the actual packages. Then finished them up on Saturday. Just in time to put into a special "care package".
I purchased a pot of glue from Small Meadow Press to use on many paper projects. (You can see it in the center of the picture ~ a silver pot.) It is archival quality and acid free. And it smells like almonds! It would be great for scrap booking, I'm sure.
I call myself "Inspirations of the Past". Do you like the name?
This is a great thing to do if you hate to see all your garden seeds go to the compost pile.
I hope you will have some fun with this project! And do try that glue!
