To Mila, Bryce Eleanor, Max;
had to take these to the P.O.
to get them hand-canceled.
Too thick to go through the machine.
Love the envelope made from a book page (?)
Thank you pc from Chrystobal
I made the wolf mask for Bryce Eleanor last year.
I sent the postcard below to Chrystobal (see above) for her Mask mail art call.
B.E. wanted a nose, so added a peat pot for the pic.
I just looked through last year's photos
and made some alterations for the mail art call.
with reference to the flooding :)
love the stamp;
Hillary Long with skates on his head
and hat on his feet :)

--a Happy Egg Day!--
I've been busy doing yard clean up. Lots to do, especially after the hail storm last week. Oh, and the fact that I really didn't clean up in the fall. There was a time when I was all about gardening from sun up 'til sun down most of the year--with the exception of a few winter months. Now, I'm really only much good in the spring. The summer heat and humidity bother me, but part of the reason is that the soil in our previous home would grow anything. Here, too much clay, too many trees in a tiny yard, and then, of course, I'm lazier.
During the spring, my ambitions exceed my acknowledged lack of commitment. I dream of the garden I used to have and give it another try, knowing that I'll be less inclined to work in the summer with temps that have been reaching into the 100's for months at a time for the last few years and the high humidity.
B.E. spent last Thursday night and Good Friday with us. Saturday was the Memorial Service for my best friend's mother, and Easter Sunday included lunch with Chris, Amelia, and B.E.
Today, Suzie is coming over. We'll have tabouli and wine and make something. Hopefully, make something first, then the wine. :0
I have letters to write and postcards to send, but I need some quiet time for that--maybe tonight I'll settle in to write.
Hope everyone had a good Easter!
