|Outgoing Mail -- Popcorn!|
I didn't send the jar of popcorn but I did send popcorn mail to a movie loving pal.
A box of treats for a very special person and a bunch of handmade postcards. I was pleased with the way the typewriter postcard came out.
|The Studio -- yes, it is a mess. Storing large sheets of paper and book tape isn't easy...|
I had to drag everything out to decide what papers and tape to use to make the album for my Turkey/Italy photos....
|I decided on these -- you like them? Upper left is the book fabric and the red flowers are for the cover|
and inside is the other design. The two papers reminded me of both Italy and Istanbul. Both places has similar motif in papers and fabric.
|Ready to start cutting -- gulp! You all know the rule, measure twice, cut once....|
|All finished -- except for drilling the holes for the screws to hold the whole thing together.|
And then I get to start pasting ALL those photos into the album.
There has been a whole lot of photo editing going on around here.
|After that rather large project, i opted for a smaller one. I had a little booklet sitting around that I altered to make a little NYC booklet. I'm trying to use all the ephemera from all my travels and make things!|
|I'll show you just a few pages from the little book.....|
|I love maps....|
Always so much to do there...
|I used to go to Chock Full o' Nuts way back in the day...and sit at the counter and have coffee and grilled corn muffins. We called it "Chock Full" and nary a Starbucks was in sight. Or even heard of.....|
Worked in my studio a long time on Sunday and got quite a few things done and ready to mail out...
Loving those old yearbook pages. No, they are not mine....a little before my time.
Altered an old folding postcard I had been saving for a friend who is from - you guess it - Riverside California.
