Junk Mail Stationery- sending words of inspiration

So I got to thinking...
How do I wish to start the New Year?
Better yet, what could I offer, of myself, to others?
A word of inspiration! 

I came across this video by yellow owl workshop.
This Junk Mail Stationary tutorial... was perfect!!
This was just what I was looking for, something to do with all the extra holiday wrapping paper
and other scraps I had laying around.



My wheels started turning!
I had purchased this tablet of Inspirational Quotes some time ago, and had yet to put it to good use.


I had downloaded these cute free download birdies I got from this site Here
With a little thought and creativity...
I decided to glue them onto decorated paper clips and attach a quote.
(There is a reason why, I did not post a picture of my finished craft.)

My next thought was...
"Wouldn't it be nice to send these out?
An artful thought, an inspirational quote... sent by a little birdie."

I got it... a little bird told me!!


These are a gift, from me to you. **
A little "artful" creation made with love! 
I wish to start the year off by sending you a spark of inspiration...
For you to know you are loved, and to share my talents
by gifting you with one of these artful clips.
(I think these are adorable; can be used in your art journal, as a bookmark, 
add as an embellishment, whatever your heart desires!)


WOULD YOU LIKE ONE...?


** I HAVE FOUR AVAILABLE!
Email me at  aprilmariecole@gmail.com
Leave me your mailing address.
The FIRST four to respond will receive my gift.


Let's keep making art and inspiring each other... a little bird told me!


Happy Monday
