resliced Happy Mail #4

The fourth piece of #reslicedHappyMail was sent to a lovely lady that I’ve known for quite a while. She’s my sister’s best friend from high school (and our Mary Kay rep 🙂 ). My sister nominated her because her Mom had become very ill. Before I could construct her card, her Mom passed away.

Now this friend, at the age of 27, has lost both her mother and father (a few years prior). I can’t imagine the struggle of losing one, much less both, of your parents at such a young age. And to top it off: she has a toddler at home. The bright side: she has an amazingly supportive husband (oh, and a beautiful daughter!).

Anyhow, Christa’s Mom loved pineapples! They were everywhere in their house. At the memorial service, there was even a blue and white pineapple serving dish that I can only imagine belonged to her Mom.

That being said, I set out on a mission to figure out how to draw a pineapple because I knew it would be the perfect design for this card. I wish I had bought my Crayola watercolor set before this because there are some really lovely ideas for watercolor pineapples out there, but now that I have my made-for-a-child set, perhaps I’ll try again later!

Watch out! I’m rockin’ and rollin’ with my new watercolor set 😉

I decided to use my calligraphy pen to draw the pineapple with simple details (aka: not many). It was a very easy (and fun) design to draw.

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
