Patty, you were the lone star in my mailbox this afternoon. Thanks for the shout out. I heard you loud and clear: You've got mail! Girl hollered so loud the vibrations knocked her hat askew. Thanks for the mail, as well.
Mail from the talented Ms Elle. My avatar! As in "Aunt Bee." Hehehe! God bless you, Elle. I do love color. I get to shoot more wasps than bees, but when it's bee season, I have my reasons to buzz among them with My Third Eye. Thank you, Ms Elle.
Now this is just fun. I wonder where Patty gets her gems? Being a teacher, I'm guessing you get lots of goodies. Thanks for sharing. You certainly know how to jazz up mail.
More bees! Yesss! I accidentally learned how Elle "did" Marjolein's bees. See? It pays to read. :) Thanks Elle. I'll have to try that. And then there's the cute little "air mail" bee.
Susan, where did you find your little bee stamp. How cute! I like the way you suggested movement-- You called to mind the flight of the bumblebee. Very clever.
Sneak Peeks at Outgoing:
I have Patty to thank for the sheet music envelopes. She sent me one of her famous stacks, and you cannot imagine the goodies! Oh, me, oh my, the goodies. Some are too "good" to damage, so they will end up in my journals, or on the covers. I was torn over using the sheet music; there were notations penciled in on several pages, and the titles . . . Well, I'm sure I couldn't appreciate them more if I were a musician myself.
Here's one for you Elle. I promise to type the next one. Hope my choice of writing stock doesn't aggravate you.
Another gift from Patty's Stack. I, too, am bewitched by her generous spirit. What a trip down memory lane. Samantha and . . .
Poor thing. Did Endora ever get his name right? Er, Derwin, Derwood . . . Thanks one more time Patty.
Kimi, heads up! Or should I say "Flag up?" Do mailboxes still have flags? Anyway, I hope you won't have trouble opening the origami envie. I had to tape the edges to prevent their being damaged. Thanks for such a lovely, kind letter. You are a good daughter.
Patty, I am crazy for the cats! I painted the nails on back. I am so looking forward to using the Nancy Drew stationery. What a find! Thanks for being so generous. Feist, Minuet, and Simon feel important, seeing the feline population represented in such a positive way. Yay!
Misty, I'm a little late, but some goodies can't wait. I'm late wishing Carter the Great a great first day at school. Hopefully the little gift will make up for it. And I got you a little something the same day I heard you like them. Hope you will enjoy.
I didn't have no blue fish!
Hope four reds will do instead.
