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!
Sharing some of my COVID snail mail. These have added JOY and LIGHT to my life. I know there have been others, some were shared as part of an exchange. If I have forgotten anyone, I apologize. Just know that your card was very much EnJOYed and appreciated! Thank you all!
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”.

Luck was on our side. Roads were clear, and my brother and his wife were able to spend Thanksgiving with us. The snow started early on Friday, and by noon, it was sunny and calm. Perfect weather for a snowball fight before they headed back to Phoenix. I watched it from inside the warm!
We had about 4 inches, Prescott had double that.
These hills are almost back to green now. I love how the snow reveals hidden details. Mingus is still covered. The roads are dry, and the yard is half melted. It doesn’t last long, usually. My kind of snow!
Now for the Mo’

Friday I opened an awesome surprise email. My good friend Chandra Lynn honored me with a feature on her blog, Pics And Posts. Along with my piece of art, she shared her own, and also one by my good friend Christine Brooks! Tres Amigas! Chandra’s posts are always heartwarming, inspirational and often gorgeous. I have learned so much from her and sometimes find myself in tears. The GOOD kind. Thank you, Chandra, for sharing your JOY!
Last week I took part in Louise Gale’s “heART Exchange“. I sent out three handmade postcards and will receive 3 in return. I was having so much fun, I made a couple of extras for friends.
I am so in love with these colors right now. I kept playing, and a have a handful in the works. Haha. I also spent a couple of days on a small tree. Just some creative late-night play. I am almost out of Green Gold. Haha.
