|My birthday is this weekend but my friends have already declared this to be my entire birthday week. I really can't argue with that concept. I'm rolling with it.|
|Yesterday there were presents. And cookies. What's not to like?|
|I love having my end-of-March-and-almost-Easter birthday. In San Francisco, anyway.|
Because there are flowers blooming in my backyard....
|My favorites are lilacs. The lilac bush my husband planted for me years ago manages to always squeeze out some lilacs right at the birthday.|
Not a lot, but I will take what I can get.
|LOOK at this card! I'm in typewriter heaven....so cool. And a certain. lovely and generous someone|
(you know who you are) also gave me that great postcard stamp.
|Ok, so I treated myself to an art playdate with a friend and we went to SF Scrap and look what I found there. My lucky day.....and yes, I did pick some of these unmounted stamps up for friends too. I'm not a total pig.|
|Never seen these before....kinda cool.....|
|And, on a food shopping trip today I saw a big bag of these free Styrofoam blocks -- ah ha!!!!!!|
|Let the stamp mounting begin! (There is a tip for you guys). I just cut it up with a mat knife and glue those annoying little unmounted stamps on there and I'm good to go.....|
|Scrap had a 1968 LOOK magazine in the FREE section with this cool old typewriter ad.|
|And these will be perfect for collaging on and sticking in all those altered books I am working. These are the large ones....vintage and cool....|
|I love old and out of date stampers....1987? 1974? 1990? I want them all....|
|Some postcards from SCRAP -- these look like they need stamp heads to me.|
|I have been altering more vintage envelopes to amuse myself....|
|And sending out a lot of good mail.....|
