Snail Mail is Great!!

Don't you just love snail mail? I do! And recently I've had some pretty amazing things in my mailbox.

Lee sent me this gorgeous WOOD postcard....

It came through the mail just as it envelope or anything and it's perfect. I wish you could see this in real life because the photo doesn't do it justice. It's collaged with lots of wonderful papers and ephemera and has a time-worn aged look. It's beautiful! Thank you, Lee....I love it.

Also recently I won a giveaway over on Eden's blog. She gave away one of her complete Doodle Directories! How lucky am I?

It was difficult to get a picture of it. I placed each card into a 4" x 6" photo album so they would be protected. These are so fun and colorful and I love all Eden's doodles. Plus she's a fantastic artist. Her pencil drawings are great. Thanks, Eden!!

Thanks to everyone who gave me advice about my blog. I finally got some basic things done but I'm still not thrilled with how it looks. I'll keep poking around with it and maybe I can get the look I want.
