So, yesterday I took the Empty Mailbox envelopes over to the Post Office. Drum roll please....
The winner is Tracey Truly of Vista CA. Congratulations! A box of goodies will be coming your way very soon. Thank you to everyone who participated. I love getting mail.
Here is Tracey's entry again
I am still loving the handmade books. I have been cruising the internet looking for ideas. There are so many wonderful galleries here and there. One artist who has caught my interest is Marianne Little.
I love reading your comments on front porches. It seems we all have great memories of our childhood, running around our neighborhoods. We had an empty lot near us full of weeds and tumbleweeds. My brothers used to build forts out of the tumbleweeds. My memory is of wanting to be a part of the whole fort thing, but it was full of stickers and red ants. I haven't seen red ants or tumbleweeds in decades.
I was never a tomboy, but I wanted to be. Instead, I played in the storage room in our garage. There was a printshop near us where we would get boxes of their excess cuts and mistake runs of paper. I am sure this is where I learned to love paper. I would make all kinds of things from the colorful sheets and oh, the games we would make up using these paper scraps.
