Mail In Mail Out

I received this beautiful Art Swap piece from Ro Bruhn. My photo does not do it justice. You might like to visit her to see a better picture.
Thank you Ro for swapping with me. I love love your art.

Ro gifted me with this Swiss Lace applique and a little dangly fob that she made with Australian beach glass. Ro said, "The glass is a piece that I found at the beach where I walk during my lunch break, it's all
the way from Australia, although who knows where it originated from."

Yes, who knows, and now it has found its way to Texas! I wonder what it was when....

Here is my package on its way to Australia yesterday. "Here it comes, Ro"

But do you see the Ms and Es on the desk around it. I'm getting ready for my Kids Book of Me Workshop Saturday morning. Hope to get some photos to show and tell.


My other swap is leaving Texas today. This jazzy package is headed to California.....

Now, I didn't crop this snap shot because I thought you might get a kick out of seeing were I sit 8 to 5.

I'll point out a few things...from my chair.
In the bottom left corner is my calendar that I doodle in. No doodles this week.
Just above that is my inspiration journal. That's where I jot down "inspiration" when I'm blogging around. You know how things just pop into your head. If I jot it down, then I make room (in my head) for more inspiration. It helps with AAA, Art Anxiety Attacks.
Now look beyond the package. Do you see it? It is a wonderful counter top with a shelf above it and there is a light under the shelf. It is for big ART projects. I mean after all, don't all insurance offices have ART projects going on?
Now one last thing; at the end of the counter on the left, do you see that square light spot. Yep, I have a birds eye view into "his" office and can keep and eye on whether or not he is really working.....or is it I can look busy if he should start this way.

Have a great weekend. Mine is loaded with plans. I'll fill you in with...
More later,
