I read an article on van Gogh, and enjoyed the thoughts he shared with his brother.
I think you will enjoy them as well.

“If only we try to live sincerely,” he told Theo in 1878,
“it will go well with us,
even though we are certain to experience real sorrow, and great disappointments, and also will probably commit great faults and do wrong things, but it certainly is true, that it is better to be
high-spirited, even though one makes more mistakes than to be
narrow-minded and all too prudent. It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much and can accomplish much,
and what is done in love, is well done.”

This grateful heart is wishing you JOY!

An idea came to me while reading UPPERCASE. I thought the subscription cards would be perfect for some postcard art. The card stock is heavy, and some of them have nice patterns on the back. I also found a flyer with a nice weight.

Sometimes I amaze even myself. LOL. I am kidding. I was trying to shove some pens back in their drawer but it was not going to close. Finally, a light bulb went off, and I tried stacking them in the opposite direction. Voilà! And DUH!

Paying It Forward

This hand painted card was oversized. There are silver circle details throughout. It’s really too bad metallics don’t scan well. Delightful!

May you stay safe and well as we begin the return to “normal”.
