Look what I found in a package in the mail recently from Mary, of uncustomary.
These mailers fold out to six panels to tell a story. Then they have a space at the end where you can add your own message to the recipient.
That's not the only treasure that has come to me through the mail, though. Mary, of Joyful Ploys, sent me this wonderful, personalized envelope notebook as a thank-you for contributing to her art journal.
Many thanks to Mary and Mary for making my days Great Mail Days!
I've also had the pleasure of attending two of my local libraries' twice-a-year book sales. While I still have bins full of books purchased from previous sales that I have yet to read, that didn't stop me from some pretty enthusiastic shopping.
My loot from the Springfield Township library sale is almost exclusively chick-lit novels to read, though there is a Bible translation, a book of Sherlock Holmes, and a book entitled Freeing the Creative Spirit for a little variety:
From a book on ancient Rome:
|Expect to see some elephant imagery in my upcoming work!
|Ah, memories of Big Boy from family road trips when I was a kid!
reading goals for 2013 might be out the window, because I now have a whole new library of titles that I would like to get to! I do this every spring and every fall--bring WAY more books into my home than I could ever hope to read across the years of my life. But I guess I'll die trying!
