I just realized that these weaves with a white edge do not show up well. Next time I will pit a colored sheet of paper behind them. It looks better in person! This one is Valid x 2 because the PO ate my first Valid card. Hope this one arrives in one piece.
Had a lasagne the other night and so used the packaging from that, added three Queen "stamps" and "cancelled" them with some rubber stamps I've had in a box and not used for ages - spot the little pig!
The weather has been so spring-like here this week. Today, it's about 35 deg. outside, and we've had snowflakes, then sleet! Who cancelled Spring? I'm really ticked off about it. Thus this mail-art piece: where I want to be and what I would much rather be doing!
I used to keep a daily journal in my college and early marriage years. I poured my heart out and really had no secrets that had to be hidden. Life has changed all that. Now I have to keep so much to myself -- life happened, and it happened hard. Sad that I've lost that in my life.
The little diary actually opens. I'm going to write a drunken memory on the inside pages before I mail this. It could be a drunken memory created tonight because I think I shall have three glasses of wine instead of my usual two.
The quote is attributed to Ernest Hemingway, who knew a thing or two about drinking too much.
Blithering Idiot barley wine is not a lovely beverage. I did buy this one for the label.
This beer is my all-time favorite beer. I could drink a whole bottle of this, all by myself.
Greg and I saw Spamalot on stage a year or so ago. I enjoyed it, but I'm not as big a Monty Python fan as Greg. When Monty Python and the Holy Grail came out in movie theaters in the 70s, I got so scared by the rabbit that I had to leave.
I was supposed to post this last night, but I got carried away with making work related mailart. Sadly, when I emailed the office manager a copy of what I wanted to send to our store managers, it scared her, so I guess I will be recycling those five postcards. Some people just don't "get" mailart. I'm not a scary person. Really. .
As I sometimes worry about my child, I cannot but ponder what thoughts must be going through the minds of mothers in Japan and Libya -- and other areas of the world where the citizens are not as blessed as we are. So, kudos to all the mothers of the world.
Playing catch up with materials I picked up in the almost outback.
#110 is my favorite as it's made from a really great map from 1936 and "country" is a term used in Australia to refer to the land. Not the country, just country. Sending to a mailart call about Aussie sense of place.
As big fans of Glee, youngest daughter made this a while ago but she used a rather light pencil for most of the writing so I went over it in pen last night and here it is - let the show begin, jazz hands and losers!!
