I never mess with my Blue Q bags. I like them just the way they are. I tweaked one today in honor of Earth Day. And, I promised myself to cut back on my carbon footprints by making fewer trips to the post office. I changed pharmacies to one much closer to home. The old one is around the corner, down the road and across the street from the post office. I cannot mail anything thicker than a the tip of my pinkie in our cluster boxes, but that's okay. I will do my part to keep our Katy cleaner.
The graphics on my bag are from the good Kathleen in Australia. I have a special weakness for aboriginal arts. I've always wanted a bag with images of the cave art, in honor of some of the first artists, but who could afford one? I gotta show you this . . .
Tell you this: It's a frame made in Africa. The craftsmanship is exquisite. I got it for 30% off the original price. What a bargain, yes? And I must ask you this: Have you ever bought a frame, liked the picture that came with so much that you left it, and hung it as if the people were related or friends? I couldn't have taken a prettier picture, so I hung these strangers on my bedroom wall. My little Indian pencil bag sneaked into the photo.
So. I forgot to do an Earth Day Berd, but I printed and addressed six of these. Each has its own little message on the front. Drawn last year, colored last night, mailed today. I like the little good luck stamp.
Maybe Betty will make up for my lapse. She wants you to know she's not a Bee Girl. She's a Flutterby. She wishes us all a Happy Earth Day. Thirteen pieces of mail left under her wing.
Hope you had a Happy Earth Day, too.
