I think this is the last postcard based on Jacki Long's
collaged faces I made a while back.
They were such fun, and I should make some more.
About a month ago, I sewed (not very neatly) some stamps onto cardstock cut to 4 x 6 postcard size. At the time, I intended to do more with the above postcard, but out of sight, out of mind. On Saturday, I wanted to post a note to someone and pulled it out, wrote the note, addressed and stamped it in a hurry to get it in the mail before the mailman came. Ugh...it looks so plain.
But it is a great stamp, isn't it? I love cool postage stamps and look at various sites for past issues, canceled or not, sometimes just to see the creative take other countries have on stamps. The Sylvester & Tweety Looney Tunes stamp above was originally issued in 1998.
Last week, I read a novel that mentioned a four-year-old in Gruffalo pajamas, and then a few days later while looking for whimsical postage stamps, I found that two of the stamps I loved were by Axel Scheffler, who illustrated The Gruffalo. Serendipity occurred and I wrote a post on my book blog about the connections.
Two of the 2012 Royal Mail Christmas Stamps designed by Scheffler.
I enjoyed 3 recent books from NetGalley.
The books are scheduled for release in early 2018,
and I will schedule reviews on my book blog soon.
I Know My Name by C. J. Cooke--An intriguing psychological novel! "The only way to get
off this island is to remember."
Paper Ghosts by Julia Heaberlin--Does Carl have dementia..or not? Did he kill several young women...or not?
Sinthetic by J.T. Nicholas--Synths are not human; they are property and disposable. But what does it mean to be human?
So were off into November and I wonder what happened to October...
