Here's hoping you had a wonderful holiday. There never seemed to be enough time to finish my Easter/Passover greeting, but I tried. Pretend not to notice the drawing on the next page. Ghosting is gauche.
If at first you don't succeed . . . Start over. And don't color the tree grape, or cover the grape with brown. Do finish the rabbit wearing the bee antenna headband, and the basket of eggs. Pay attention to the green for the leaves! Make a bee look like a bee. Color the egg beneath the bird's tail feathers. Better yet, leave well enough alone and walk away when you should. It was too late for Easter/ Passover/Spring postcards anyway. I had such good intentions too. And I really wanted at least one red colored egg. We never had red when I was still dyed eggs with young Erin. It was pastels or nothing. Then Auntie Stas taught us about Polish eggs. The only ones with even a speck of red were wooden though. I do wish I'd finished the rabbit.
There are so many things I gotta tell you, but my new Monday muse is Write_On. Penfriend P, have you used yours? The gifts, I mean. Mine came in today's mail.
Say hello to my little Starter Kit.
Said Starter Kit contains four cards, four envelopes, a green Gelly Roll metallic pen . . .
. . . and promotional stickers. I keep a supply of the Micron pens on hand for writing and drawing. Their white Gelly Rolls are the best ever.
Letterpress is best! This little thank-you is for "joining us in writing 30 meters in 30 days!" A note is not a letter, but who's nitpicking? The message on back of the notecards are sweet--totally worthy of a read and nod. Check out the wicked creativity here:
Free is the best advertising ever, but I've already chosen
way too many several give-myself-gifts. Soon. Very soon. I already know you're on board! I do believe in helping creative-artistic-genius mothers. Women are the mothers of a lot of necessities. So. Find the "Social Preparedness Kit!" Ya gotta like it!
All the lovely stamps strewn around grab my eye like I'm finding Waldo! Aw, y'all have got to explore both sites. Honest. Would I steer you wrong? All those colors are so soothing and inspirational. 'Tis the pastel season after all! We all need a reason to write on, so if pretty paper isn't reason enough . . . then I don't know what to tell you.
The tear-away notes! Oh, yes. I need those too. Don't forget the Write_On envelopes! Buy, buy, buy! And write on, and on, and on! One a day keeps the doldrums at bay. Ready? Get set. Order!
My Monday came with a whole bunch of muses, but some will have to wait for the morrow. Just you wait and see.
