The copy I ordered arrived yesterday. Oh happy day! Perhaps it was day before yesterday. It was. I ordered it on April 12. It showed up on April 14. I ordered my Social Preparedness Kit and another item on April 6. The invoice says First Class delivery takes 1-3 days. I've scheduled my week around it since packages are left on the door step. Up until last night my order was still in the state of origin. It's been hung up since April 9. Today, an e-mail from the source informed me that First Class takes up to 14 days. Now the tracking number has mysteriously disappeared. Cannot shake my head any harder over this one.
I'll share with you several of many reasons why I bought a copy of Molly Suber Thorpe's exciting book. You know this is a motivator, right? This page alone is a grand reason to get your own copy if you don't already have one. This little link is like buttercream frosting on a slice of carrot cake from The Black Walnut!
There's magic at Pushing the Envelopes! I promise.
Apologies for the poor quality, but perhaps it will inspire you to examine this gem of a book up close and personally.
Your imagination has to work double time here. The brown on brown is exquisite and beautiful and delicious. Oh, see for yourself! Please, please, please? What's in the little square bottle is a new discovery waiting to happen.
These are gems on the actual page. The colors remind me of the Ralph Lauren commercial where he designs a stunning necklace, blouse and a skirt I'd sell most of my books to buy, if I were 7 feet tall and willowy like young sapling.
I am quite curious over this toothpaste tease. And why mint? How can toothpaste be a necessary part of calligraphy? I guess I'll know soon enough.
This is so beautiful you have to see it for yourself. Words fail me on this one. I want that pitcher, except I want a 7 on mine.
Speaks for itself, huh? Enough said.
You knew there would be how-tos, right?
And then there is this. If a child can, then yes, we can too. So, do judge a book by its cover after the pages within confirm your instinct. Perhaps she is preparing her parents' tax forms? He?
Do write on. In a new, bold, even more artistic way. Stun the USPS employees! Stun yourself.
