Are you having a "could-be-better day?" We've all had them, and we wouldn't wish them on our best enemy. We wouldn't even wish one on our worst enemy, if we had one. Right? Well, Patty, over at Just Letter Rip had surgery again. She's in rehab and she's thriving, but since we all know mail is the best medicine that comes in paper form--second only to written prescriptions for pain, and discharge papers--she can use as many doses as we can manage. You don't even have to run to her blog for to get an address. I have it right here:
158 Greek Miller Road
Crockett, VA 24323
Let's make it rain! Thanks in advance! Be well, Patty.
Pamela, thanks for the yums! Fun mail is better than a cupcake. It's delicious and doesn't settle on the hips. I've been craving yellow batter cupcakes with buttercream frosting! Katy being too hot for an oven at 350 degrees is a good thing. Langston Hughes stamps? How nice! He reminds me of William Powell in that fedora.
I have not figured out how The Mangler managed to tear a hole in a vellum envelope. It's a head-scratcher for sure. The back bears scars as well although the internal goodness remained intact. Does the USPS have a complaint department? As if it matters. No matter. I enjoyed what lay beyond the flap. Sure wish I could fold like that. It's better than knowing how to play Texas Hold 'em. Because it rhymes with fold 'em. (groan) There's something in each little fold! How clever-clever! I intend to learn how you do that.
If I still had a Bucket List, attending one of your workshops and this, http://16sparrows.typepad.com/16sparrows/2014/06/fun-with-sunprints.html would be near the top. I found my Sun Print kit Erin gave me, made plans to make prints with Alex this weekend, but even best-laid-plans often go the same way as good intentions. There's always tomorrow or "some other time." Good ideas never die, they simply wait for their resurrection. (Big grin with tongue in cheek.)
This yellow fellow (the sun) permanently shines on a page in FLOW, the phantom magazine for paper lovers. His message feels appropriate somehow. Summer is a great time to cultivate new, burgeoning, and mature pen friendships. So, write on! Happy Summer!
P.S. There's more than one way to skin a fish! More mail goes out on Monday. Making envelopes is a surefire way to prime a letter-writing pump.
