Mishmash!

Lately, I'm so busy I haven't had time to blog but here is a quick mishmash of my activities!

Etegami


The motto of Etegami is:  It's fine to be clumsy.

Well that suits me just fine because I am not a perfectionist in any way.  Above is an Etegami postcard I sent my daughter in law.  Mistakes and all. 


I saw this and loved it.  
It seems that I have been taking a zillion pictures lately!

Including a selfie or two!!



Pocket letters!  I'm all about pocket letters.
Here is one I received!  With bonus stuff!
Perfect for my Pink Saturday offering!


It came in the mail in a large envelope decorated with stickers and had some 
bonus cards and a note pad!



 Here is the actual pocket letter with a beach theme.

The back side had goodies enclosed!



I've also been doing some geocaching here and there, attending events and meeting
new people. 

I took this shot sitting along a beautiful river bank and finding my cache contained just a log and a blue marble.  
I took the photo for Blue Monday

 and for Shadow Shot Sunday2 - it cast a lovely blue shadow!  




I'm also making another Jeannie Beanie Bumpy Blanket!  I love this yarn, it's the softest ever!






This blanket I made two years ago is on it's second baby!

In addition I have been attending game nights with a local group playing board games until late in the night at all night iHop!  Having lunches, dinners and thrifting with my mom and sisters and squeaking time out to read and crochet.  

Life has been a mishmash!

Well, mishmash seems to me to be a full life - fun, creativity, friends and family. Bliss!

Now this list of pics offer an eclectic look of how we live our lives. There is so much nuance in our lives it may be wise to keep a camera with us at all times so we can get many snapshots of our full existence - which is never boring :)

I agree with what Pondside said. Couldn't have said it better :)
And I really like the photo of that blue marble!

You are just having way too much fun my dear (LOL). Great fun reading about all your activities, some of them I've never heard about (the late night board games at IHOP -- what fun.) We have a lot of activities here at our RV Resort, and we only do a small fraction of them, but it is really good to have them -- for the social life and for getting out of one's comfort zone and trying new things painlessly!

That's me!! Etegami-didn't know there was a word for it! Love that blue marble too-what a find.

Patty said...

Beautiful, Jeanne! I love the selfie, especially! :) And the marble's shadow. And pocket letter. And etegami!

Jeanne said...

Hello Jeannie Marie, I was so happy to see your so blue marble from a Geocashe you found. My daughter and her family do Geocashing a lot. I have been with her a few times and it is exciting and fun. Love the shadow it made as well.

It sounds like you are a busy person and having a great time being busy. My kind of woman. Lol.

Thank you so much for joining Blue Monday. I really am glad it went well today. Sally would be pleased as well. I do miss her so much.
xo, Jeanne

Mish mash seems to be our way of life and a camera is a great idea to have at hand. I have a Bil who never leaves his camera wherever he goes, specially with family and hey, we always have to ask him for the memories, lol..
Your selfie is so cute, can you believe I've never taken one of me?
Have a great week my friend.
