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.

My dear friend, Anita...

These were many envelopes of which my dear friend, Anita, has
received from myself and many other "pointed pen" friends in the guild.
This is her "inspiration" bulletin board in her studio... I had forgotten about
some of them... and of course... the NEW address is altered for her protection...
She moved so the old addressed envelopes are in tact.

Trish (ME) did this one

Sandy O. did this one....isn't it really cool!?

This is my version of Contemporary pointed Pen....

Sandy's color combination on this one is a winner! I love it!

Dee Day did this one....

Another version of my contemporary pointed pen

Sometimes THIS happens... actually quite often for me....

WHAT A MESS the USPS made of this envelope!!!

Clearly... you can see what NUMBER it is....
they sent it back saying "NO APT #"

Tyvek (paper) colored Card

Using Tyvek paper... the stuff that is like plastic and won't
tear, like paper does... you know, the envelopes that the
Post office uses...
Well, you can actually buy the paper for hobbies and crafts.
I painted this piece with acrylics and then hand lettering
the quote onto it with gouache.  It was a little difficult,
but it came out rather nice....

This was sent to someone I didn't know, but needed a lift...

This was sent to someone who was very ill at the time...
it was the best friend of a friend that I know.... It cheered her up, too!
