Be the artist that you are.
Art simply is.
Sometimes less is more.
A page-cum-envelope from Modern Farm Magazine. It's not upside down. I used the flap side for the address because . . . Well, you'll see why in a second. Matching paper tape? A gift from Patty. Thank you, dear Patty. The tractor's for you. The Mason jar is for tea. Iced sun tea. With fresh lime squeezes. For everyone.
Ta-da! See? How could I cover all this? This side is for Elle. Emilie, I'm looking for a mule, all for you. Stay tuned just in case. Am sure there are tomatoes in there somewhere for the phonelady. There's fresh air and sunshine for everyone! Y'all can pretend to pick a bale of hay, just for giggles. Maybe join in the sing-along with the dude dragging the guitar?
A postcard. The prettiest little weed-flower in Texas today.
A postcard. "My True Colors."
I did this for Mina last year. She never got it. Never got to see it. The gift is still in the box. Maybe I'll open it tomorrow. Maybe I won't. No matter. The stinky box holds a stripper. Poor thing. I'll let it out. There will be cake tomorrow!
