OK...here you go
Toni Curtis and
for some Random or Unknown or Crazy things about ME.
1. Do my new shoes count? I'm not the only one in town with them. No you don't bounce off the ground.
2. I hate to shop for clothes. So I have none.
3. I love to shop for art supplies.
4. This morning I needed to paint something before I could leave the house. So I tried out these new colors on some scrap card stock. Collage fodder.
5. Last night I dreamed I was driving down a dirt road with someone and I saw a beautiful tree that had been drawn in the dirt in the field with very unusual branches. I woke up looking for my camera.
6. Today I'm wondering who did that...tree drawing in the dirt.
7. I have an article being published in Jan/Feb issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. Spectacular!
Enough for now,

JOY was received in this pretty little envelope from my friend Rella.
And what fun to receive a scramble of found words. I'm working on the message and loving the little print of her special art also enclosed.
If you haven't sent out mail art.....you should. It sends and brings so much joy all along the way.
In the meantime, I'm having so much fun

I got to the end of the internet quickly this morning. Could be because not much going on out there. Could be because I took no detours. And it could be because I passed by without saying HI.
So Hi, Hello, how are you?
I'm having a great weekend. I finished scanning all the butterflies. And printed a few that will surely show up on my next work. I'm just about to go and start that but here is what I did last night.
It is my first "face on a box" for mailing. This will go out tomorrow because it is already with the address covered by the stamp. It is a small box. But just right for a little surprise.
OK, enough for now.

This first love package is from Regina....a girl of many names. She goes by Gina too and her blog is Soul Glo.
I won a drawing on her blog and you wouldn't believe the goodies she managed to get into this package. But look, she sent me pictures of long lost relatives and a stamp collection book full of stamps. Oh what inspiration.
A few days later, I received another package form Gina with this Book, The Decorated Journal, by Gwen Diehn. It is a great book on creating various art journals.
Thank you Miss Soul Glo Gina. xoxo
My Arizona brother and family vacationed in Sweden this summer. Sweet Kristen saved and sent me napkins for their trip.
Thank you xoxoxo
This wonderful package came stuffed full of all kind of papers, stamps, napkins more of my lost relatives. Art they cute.
Notice the picture in the lower left corner of the Art Mail. And then notice the picture in the middle on top of the envelope. And then .........
.....take a closer look at the picture here.
Last summer when I posted the photograph on my blog, Patricia at Bird Nest On The Ground was inspired and ask permission to use the photo to make one of her miniature fabric art landscapes.
It is beautiful. She replicated the photo in fabric and thread....wish you could see the tiny stitches.
But there is more!
After I admired a vintage "Church Purse" on Pat's blog, she made me one.
She studied the original and was able to make a wonderful copy of it. It is so sweet and I love it.
Thank you Pat, xoxo
And it arrived yesterday in this crazy fun box.
With some of those "looking-in-the-clouds" creatures.
Of course, don't you know I had to add some paper napkin fishes and flowers.
I'll be catching up on some blogging this weekend and washing some sheets and finding some order in the studio and making some art and just chillin.
Enough for now,
