Serendipitous Solution

A few weeks ago we had Vacation Bible School at our church.

I taught the 3 and 4 year olds for the week. 

One of my student's moms brought in a basket of handmade quilted items as gifts for the teachers.

I chose an adorable key chain that had chickens on it (of course).

The mom handed me another little bundle and told me I "had" to have "one of these".

I wasn't sure what "one of these" was.

I opened it up to find this:

And then I flipped it open to see this:

Oh, cute!  My first thought was to put photos in it.  But I really didn't need a spot for photos.  I needed a place to put all of the member cards and punch cards for places I shop.  They've been slowly filling up my wallet and becoming hard to keep track of.

So, I simply placed the cards in my new little holder:

There's even enough room to keep these little encouragement cards I like to have on hand.

This is one of the best gifts I didn't know I wanted!


  1. That is too cute. I want one! What did she call it? I'll bed I can find a pattern for something like this somewhere....

  2. That is awesome! My Mom needs one of these!

  3. You carry encouragement cards with you? Kelly, we need more people like you on this planet! And what a cute holder for all your cards :-)


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
