well....it's been almost 6 months since I've been here. life got a bit crazy back in April....busy working for money, a new love interest, the garden screaming at me and travel all led to a mailart shutdown and Blogger block.....you know Blogger block? you good folks all continued to send me mailart and the pile grew and grew. to the point where it became very daunting....Blogger block set in....couldn't seem to tackle it mid-summer. Finally got to it this past rainy Sunday. Much coffee in my belly and away I went.....got 'er done. I'd like to thank from the bottom of my heart everyone below who continued to send me their creations even though I wasn't sending any out. You're amazing...thank you. I should be getting back to the cut and paste soon...in fact there's one on the table waiting for me.
