If I can make someone smile or perhaps get a smile on MY face when I open my mailbox (which not one day goes by that I don't HOPE to find something FUN popping out of my mailbox) then I think I've done my job and tried to make the world is a BETTER place by making just one person happy! Addresses are sometimes altered for protection so the overall visual of the envelope may or may not be the way it was.

March 2017

Took a water color class online and had to practice some
of my flowers. They made nice additions to cards and envies!

Yes... I draw guidelines on dark paper and I
see that I didn't erase them before I took the picture.

February 2017

This was my return address "Label",

January 2017 birthdays!

Inside of a card that I hand created when I was making paste paper.
I needed to wipe off my brush and this was the result. I liked it!

Birthday card for cousin, Jay.  I remember when he was just a baby.
NOW, he's 31.  How can that be?

Our friend LOVES Trish Trash and sometimes gets lonely in Alaska.
I thought I would surprise him this hand made card (background)
