Mail Art

I love sending and receiving mail

Collaging envelopes is one of my favorite ways to make mail art. I use vintage paper, stamps and odds and ends of paper that I find in my travels 

I figure if you are going to take the trouble of sending mail why not make it pretty?

Pulled out my watercolor supplies last week and here's the result

You know you have them sometimes

Nothing like a little Andrew Bird inspired art, and I mean come on, who doesn't love the moon? 

My friend and I share a Netflix account and I am sure we both have those moments of looking at the "recently watched" and going "HUH?" Me watching a lot of Buffy? Whatno.....

Used the ol' put paint in middle of paper. Fold in half. See what you can make out of it trick

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is a little winged octopi sending some Valentines love your way. He's even got some fleece hearts to throw at you if you aren't in the spirit of the day. 
  Here are some Valentines I made this week. A little Parks and Recreation themed one

 The Hon Solo one was my own invention, I know, impressive. Don't clap too loud guys, the neighbors    will think you're strange. 

Classic Zuko one as well, because we all need a little Avatar in our life. (No I'm not talking about blue people)

Quilting again!

I know it sounds weird to most of you, but I've missed quilting. A LOT. After three months of sewing just plushies it feels so good to be making stuff......that's not plushies. I'm excited about this pattern and the fact that I can use a good amount of my fabric scraps. Double brownie points if I can reduce the ridiculous amount of scraps that I have. Plus it means I have an excuse to buy new fabric. "OH DEAR. I SEEM TO HAVE RUN OUT OF SCRAPS. Darn. I guess a trip to the fabric store is in order" 
Imagine sparkles and stars around "fabric store" 

 Netflix marathon + quilting= a beauteous evening
