I Forgot..............Again!

I forgot two things actually. First, I forgot to scan the envelope before I addressed it and so had to cover the address. Then, I forgot to rotate the photo and so it is oriented the wrong way. I'm not starting over, so you have a few options.

1) Imagine it is rotated.
2) Turn your head sideways.
3) Rotate the computer screen.
4) Embrace imperfection.

A Couple of Fold-Ups


Surfing the web is always fun. Look what I stumbled upon the other day. Printable letter fold-ups!

Print out the design. Write your letter on the other side. Fold along the dotted lines. Address, stamp, and mail.

What could be easier!

Origami Wreaths

My Christmas tree isn't up. My shopping isn't complete. Not a single present is wrapped. The stockings are not hung, even carelessly.

But, do I look worried? Do you see me dashing around in a frenzy? No way. I'm sitting quietly at the dining room table, looking out at the snow, cutting rectangles from assorted junk mail catalogs, folding origami wreaths for Christmas cards, and thinking all is well in my little world.

Should you wish to make your own little bits of happiness, you can find the folding instructions here.

Gecko Greetings: Flotsam & Jetsam 21

Am I the only one who thinks the gecko is way cool? I love using this little guy in my art journal pages as well as on my mail art.

Speaking of which, if you generally toss your Geico gecko junk mail into the trash (perish the thought), would you consider saving him for me? My address is at the top in the righthand sidebar. I'm also collecting the image of the money with the googly eyes if you want to toss those in as well. I've got an idea for a project, but I need lots of images. Thanks so much.
