Girls Love Mail

In the January/February issue of "Cloth Paper Scissors", there was an article about a group of volunteers who send letters and/or art to women recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  I wanted to help.
I started with a rectangle painted in yellow, pink and gold.
I folded it in half and then fourths, cutting a slit in the center.
It becomes a little book.
I decorated each page with words of encouragement.
Your letter or art gets mailed to the volunteer group and they forward it to hospitals.  I think this is a wonderful, caring idea and if you are interested, visit their website at girlslovemail.com

  1. YOU are a wonderful person! I have not ever heard of this. But now that I have, I think I MUST participate. My mother is a 5 year stage 4 cancer survivor...and still with us today. Thank you so much for the link to the site. Your card is a beauty!...even tho I can't figure out the slit. But I'm sure when I fold and slit one it will all be made clear to me. LOL Thanks, Ellen!
