Back in the day (exactly what time frame that refers to, I'm not sure, but in this case I am meaning when we were in our late 30's or early 40's), my sister and I used to make mail art for each other. Quite frequently I would say.
I was reminded of how much fun it was, when I received this in the post from Mary Ann last week.
I called her to ask if she said anything important inside, because I didn't want to open it and chance disturbing a single element. It's my new bookmark and I delight in admiring every aspect of it over and over again each night when I am reading.
I took my sewing machine in for "routine maintenance" today and since I am unable to work on my new quilt, I find myself with time on my hands. I am trying to decide if I should attempt to draw my house with my car and recycling bins out front. Like she did.
Or maybe a self portrait, or a drawing of Chris, or one of the shoes I am thinking about ordering.
A car with 3 tires appeals to me the most right now for some reason.
