In My Letterbox

letterbox: kodak
Katie is me...if I'm in trouble or applying for a job, It's Katrina, which is my full name.
If you're my family or childhood friend, it's Katie. Otherwise Kate or Kat or Kitkat or K-k-k-kaaaaatie!
I know, it's a bit complicated, but then, so am I.

Dear Summer Vacation,
Could you please be a doll and get your rear in gear? I mean, the weather has been beautiful and all lately, but I am itching for July when I get to take a couple mini-breaks and will actually have some time to be outside and enjoy it all. I am dreaming of skirts, sandals, campfires, dune hikes, Vermont, concerts, my sister, fish n' chips on the cape, salt water in my hair, naps in the sunshine, the smell of pine, cold beer, and grilled food. I trust that you will not disappoint.

Dear Plaid,
You really are the bees knees and I would love to use you in a bunch of vintage inspired sewing projects but you are also wreaking havoc on my nerves and are a real sonofagun to work with...and I am only attempting a pillow with nice right angle seams. Or at least they are supposed to look that way so please start behaving yourself or you're going to get thrown out and banned from this sewing room, ya here?!

Dear Brain,
I know you were kind of on overload last month but it's time to get your you-know-what together and focus again. I know...it kind of stinks sometimes, this whole focus and get stuff accomplished thang, but it has it's rewards I promise. I've been trying to work on new embroidery patterns and blog posts and recipes but I need your cooperation ok? OKthanks!

Dear trusty old French Press,
I just wanted to say that I love you. You + Me = For Always.
You've been a real trooper in helping my brain out (see above notice) and I am forever grateful.

Dear Errands,
Don't get your panties in a bunch—I'm on my way now, I swear!
