Back in Business!!

Hello everyone!

So when I said I'd be gone a few weeks I guess I actually meant more than a month.
But here I am, finally with wireless internet at my new home.

I've received some lovely mail welcoming me here.  Thanks so much to those penpals who have sent me things. I've been making a start at replies.  

But first I'll show you some things I sent before I left New England:

I love these two stamps of the snail and the 2 letters.

Recently I've really been loving Crayola's "Twistables Slick Sticks" crayons.  They really are slick and give a really lovely bright color. They aren't good for detail though.  It's a really broad tip.  But they are so much fun.  I've also gotten into glitter and in more recent mail art I combine the two.  Can you say awesome?

The old man is actually a sticker that I MADE! with my awesome friend Dana and her cool sticker making machine.  :D

a postcard that I made for my parents from a map used on my recent trip to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, home of the highest recorded wind gusts on Earth. When we went there in July it was winter coat weather on top and blowing over 80 mph.

back of the postcard.... this is a joke to my parents from one of our favorite movies... I passed by the location of the film. Do you know the film?

found an old check book log and made some mail.  I love grids and things on mail art.

the twistables are in use here again
a cool dino fold-and-send that I think I got from Tara at the letter writing social that we had.  With an added skeleton sticker of some watery monster. :-D

Well folks, that's all for now, but you can expect some more frequent postings from me.  Cheers!


  1. Glad to see you back! I hope the weather has cooled and you are enjoying your new area!

  2. All of your outgoing mail is so pretty! I'm glad that you're blogging again as well :)

  3. Emilie is back and mailboxes will be full of fun again!
