FWF-Good Friends Are Like Stars...

Hello! Happy Friday.  I have an easy peasy CAS card for today.  I have always adored this sentiment from Unity's January 2011 KOTM.  I decided this little, felt star was the perfect embellishment for it.  As simple as it is, I love the way it turned out.  Sometimes the simple things can make me the happiest!
The package of felt stars is from KI Memories and is several years old. I have been working hard to use things in my stash.  I have passed on oodles of paper to my boys.  I have been going through my stash and weeding out the things that are just not "me" anymore.  I think some elements you can use in different ways that will never go "out of style" such as stars.  They are rather timeless, right?
Several times a year I attempt to reorganize my studio.  The next day, my desk area is a mess, and there are stacks of paper, stamps and inks. However, I always know where everything is.  I have come to the conclusion that it is organized chaos. It is what it is, and that is how I roll!  I am not one of those people that everything is in perfect order all the time, and frankly, I don't think I ever will be!

Thanks for stopping by!

Emily

I hear ya on the "organized chaos" bit. That's me, too!! I love the idea of "a place for everything and everything in its place," but I can't pull it off. I agree--that's just how I roll. I've decided to stop making excuses for myself because--just as you say--it is what it is!!!

I LOVE this card, Emily!! That felt star is adorable and I just LOVE the CAS design. Awesome!
