All packed up and stamped and ready to go

And they're off! I braved the HORRIBLE 93 degree heat here in SF to go to the post office so I should get some extra credit, don't you think?
It is hard to find air conditioning here in SF so I had to go stand in the meat department at Safeway to cool off.
Now with all this output I really think my INCOMING mail should improve because it hasn't been pretty around here.
We just had a long holiday weekend so I got a lot done. Happily my studio stays cool.....
so I will try to hide out here during this heat wave and get a lot more done.

If you don't see your name here don't despair.....I am still working on mail and really trying to get caught up....so many projects...so little time...
How anyone can ever be bored is beyond me. I keep thinking of projects faster than I can work on them...and then there is reading and cooking and going to films and the farmers markets and seeing friends...oh! and work...
Keeps me out of trouble, I guess!

SEND GOOD MAIL

    2. Some ink stamps, a heart punch, postal stamps, and some blanc greeting cards to make more of my own. I had to make sure I didn't bring too much back, I already have so much stuff, haha.

  6. 93!?! Holy smokes, that *is* hot for SF. I thought about your empty mailbox the other day and it was almost enuf to motivate me to send you something, but then the dog needed walking and I had to go to work, etc, etc, lol. But I'm on a bit of a roll now so will send something your way. Good on you for all that GOOD MAIL!

    1. Leslie -- I'm dying here -- and there is a whole lot of whining going on. You're on a roll? Well, make my mail box happy!

  7. I agree with your comment, "How anyone can ever be bored is beyond me." Life is so full and the days aren't long enough to do all the things I want to do. Someone posted on Facebook: I'm bored. That made me terribly sad for this person.

    1. I know...bored? Really? 24 hours a day is not enough for me to do everything I'm interested in....

  8. Love this post so much. I am three months behind in mail, and blog posts, but I've just started a new at home business, so I'm trying not to beat myself up about my mail slacking. Your post inspires me to dig in and get some mail out! Thank you!

    1. So nice to see your name here, PostMuse! Don't beat yourself up -- it is supposed to be fun. And making mail art does take a lot of time and we all only have so much. But it felt good to send off a bunch of mail and now maybe I will get some good mail back.

    1. OoooOoo a Lady Pamela? Certain people (they know who they are) call me Princess Pamela -- maybe we need to have tea! Yes, it does feel good to (partly) catch up but I still have piles to answer.....
