Today I live in a winter wonderland. We call it Snowen Sound. Yesterday snow drifted down all day long…well into the evening…and on into the night.
and venture over to the Post Office
to mail the Queen ATCs.
I let my friends down because first I made Q ATCs but not Queen ones (or even quilt ones) and then I lost the first two that I made. Then I got the cards done on the very last day of November, but circumstances interrupted and now here I am on the THIRD day of December just getting the envelope that I prepared on the FIRST day into the actual mail box.
In my defense, our little town (we call it a city, but it’s really a town) hasn’t got mail boxes on every other corner like some real cities. But you can still buy stamps at the Post Office which is a real treat.
Anyway, here is a little peek for those of you who are left waiting.
This is the “blackbird” Queen.
“The Queen cried from the garden,
‘It’s raining fish, my Honey!”
And last, but not least…The Quirky Queen
you can see what she really, really loves.
It says, “Loves a Masquerade Ball!”
and my name and date are embedded into the skirt too.
I am having fun doing backgrounds for the journals and planning the “Open the Door”
Book of visual journaling
(the one that will be door upon door.)
I even dreamed about it last night
I won’t be sharing the journal “per se” because it is just a little
store bought book, but naturally I have duded it up a bit
to make it more “mine”.
Oh and the best exciting news for today is that a friend has invited me and Jeff to a little artist retreat at her farm and I will be “arting” in her stone house studio! Oh I have never looked so forward to January in my whole life! Life really is a wonderland, if you just take it as it comes.
Have fun and remember all the Queen’s love you!
