so... i found a post about a cool lady, Jane Davies from
jane davies studios in vermont
she is a postmaster and owns the cutest little post office that is
pictured here and she is trying to keep it and save it, one
postcard at a time. To read about her challenge...
go to her blog here
this is the postcard that I sent her and I thought i would share it
with you for workday wednesday...
I take old 33 rpm record albums and turn them into postcards. I have
sent over 15 and they have all arrived without a problem.
I usually start by painting over the label to make it
doodle worthy... This one i did in all white so that I could doodle
right on top of it
if you incorporate your stamps ( about $2 US postage ) ... then your design
works out alot better.
then on one side i write my letter and on the other side i add in the address.
I always add in a return address... but i have NEVER
had one returned. Let's hope this one gets to Jane in good shape.
This is just a hint of the kind of things that we do durring
National Letter Writing Month.
Coming up in April. Email me if you
want to be paired up with a pen pal for the funnest month of
letter writing and going to the mailbox
that you will ever have.
Next... i want to share an egg that I made for my mom and dad's
67th wedding anniversary... a bit more zen doodling
except this one is on a goose egg.
this is a bowl of eggs that I have done for them over the past oh,
about 30 years i would say.
the finished piece.... given to them on their
67th wedding anniversary.
Until next Wednesday....
