I had many panics about losing that letter. I kept it in the depths of my wallet and carried it everywhere I went. One day, I left my purse at a store and all that I can remember was that I was frantic about that letter. That day I made a decision that it needed it's own special "safe" house and this is what I came up with.
It now sits on my dresser and I get to look at it every morning... I am reminded of how special family is!
I took this same idea and found a fun piece of grapevine at a craft store and mounted it to my pantry door. I was then able to tuck photos of all of my Grandparents into the vine. I like to think of it as my own special Family Tree. ~My kiddos love to see their Great Grandparents and often ask to hear stories about them.
Funny...You would think I learned my lesson about not carrying special items around with me but I sure haven't. I am carrying a letter around right now from a special friend that supported me through a major transition in my life. I think it is time to get crafting again and find this one a home too.
So the next time you think about saying something to a family member or friend...try it in a letter.
What sentimental items do you carry around with you?
