A couple of weeks ago I received this adorable package in the mail. This is the first hand-made envelope I have ever seen in my whole life. Much less received!!! Isn’t it the cutest thing ever!!! I have never known that we could send stuff in the mail this way……Well, actually I’ve heard of people decorating envelopes but this is so over the top! Tammy at Daisy Yellow made it! I love it, don’t you??
Inside the envelope was this tiny little red book.
Since I’ve never participated in something like this, a Mail Art Swap, I had no idea what to do for my pages!!!
So, it sat……. and sat…..and sat…..
Then last night, I had an idea! I ran up to my studio (where not much happens) and came down with colored paper and letter stencils. I grabbed my handy-dandy pen bag and doodled away. Then, since this is a journal I really wanted to do some line journaling, you know “real writing”. But, I didn’t want to mess it up and do the journaling on the original. So, I cut a piece of cute scrapbook paper to the size of the page and journaled on that. Then I glued everything inside the book.
Since it’s too small to read from here, I’ll tell you what the journaling says:
“This is how I see me and art. If I live to be 90, I will be the little old lady taking the shuttle to the art store….Why? Because it makes me happy & young at heart. Plus between you & me- I hate to cook.”
Now, I just need to do 2 more pages and then send it on. I have an idea of what to do, lets see if I can pull it off!
