Wow, what a large gap between my last post on June 12 and this one today July 26th. Not because I’ve been lazy, or bored with doing this, and not because I just did not feel like writing. Instead, we had a family emergency and because of that, we’ve been extra busy….Read More
Last weekend, Steve & I took a couple of days away to celebrate the anniversary of the beginning of “us” as a couple. We met way back in 1972 when we were teenagers - 15 & 16. Since that meeting we have always been friends . . .Read More
I did some traveling at the end of September 2015, so I've been away from posting and took some time off. I traveled to Boston and saw both of my sons and their wives, a treat. I find traveling a bit hard, especially when going alone -but Steve opted to stay home & take care of the pets . . . it's hard to get him out of Florida these days! First stop was to spend a few days with my youngest son Dallas and his wife Liz . . .Read More
I do love sending out for our mail art exchanges, don't get me wrong. That mail art comes from my heart too! But this is a post about all the personal mail art I sent -just for fun . . . and there was a lot, so I created a little video!Read More
Well, I have finally completed emptying my very large 4-drawer metal file cabinet and tossing a lot of stuff out. Then reorganizing all the folders and placing the contents into file boxes for our upcoming move, phew! We will close on a new home at the end of next week and are anticipating moving sometime in early November. I will keep you posted on when we move and I know you will understand if I am not posting here on the blog as much. I do have a personal trade or two that I hope to accomplish soon -- I still need to be creative, even if I am moving!
We now have an empty file cabinet . . .
Another interesting thing about packing and sorting was that I came across a few old newspaper clippings, old emails, old poems (mine & my boys), school reports and drawings. I even found an old invitation we made for my oldest son Decklin's 9th birthday (he is now 31 years old!). These things now have their own special accordion file folder - click for details.
That was really fun and made it all worth it for me.
I hope you all are well and happy and making the most of what you've got! sending love, lenna
