Boy, oh boy, do I have the stuff to show you today and believe it or not, even some of it is sewing related. (I know I have been a slacker in that department lately, but I have been having such fun drawing and using my amazing Copic markers that I just can't seem to stop! Needless to say, you WILL be seeing some fun mail too!)
First though, let me present Lady #55, Noel, from Spain. (Yes, Spain!) I am getting to be quite an international artist, I guess, huh? Last time, South Africa and now Spain? Woo-hoo! Keep um coming, I say! I think I'm up to 5 continents now! Anyhow, this is Noel. I posted the original photo she sent to me plus another one with her and "herself" which she was kind enough to send me.
Such a pretty girl, don't you think???? Oh, to be so young again................
Then, I don't know if you remember, but I had to make a pincushion for the Pincushion Swap that I am in. I plan on making another one, just for fun and to see which I like better, but so far I only have this one made:
Pretty cool how I "stage" the pincushion with appropriate colored pins, doncha think? (In reality, you have no idea how long it took to find those pins that I had stuck away somewhere. Probably as long as it took to make the crazy pincushion. lol) I really should keep my stuff all together somewhere!!
Then, we have the envelopes (again). I truly love making these.....and sending them, and wondering the facial expressions of those receiving them. I hope there are lots of smiles........!!! I know my little great niece is loving hers. (I'm spoiling her with two a week now.) The first contains an early reader...as the original plan....but now I add an "a-z mystery" book to her collection as well. This week, it was one titled, "The Vampire's Vacation".
Finally, I will just post the remainder of the envelopes that went out in this week's mail. (I must admit the the post office is loving me!! I have been spending a shit-load of $$ on stamps!)
Whew.....there you have it! Please don't think that all those drawings are self thought up......heavens NO! I'd never be able to think up so many cute things without help! I copy images from all over....greeting cards, clip art, fabrics, wallpaper, etc. I do hand draw them and color them but I do copy them mostly from tiny images onto the 6x9" envelopes (my newest favorite size.) They are not for sale! I am doing this just for fun....just for the enjoyment of the recipient! If you need a smile, let me know..........hopefully, I won't run out of stamps! lol Until next time!
