I Got Mail!

Today didn't start out real well. Didn't sleep last night...something I ate last night disagreed with me and kept me up. Had errands to run first thing this morning and a plumber coming in the afternoon so I couldn't just hide underneath my covers. Just one of those days...

Then the mail came...and amongst the junk and the bills...there it was...MAIL ART!!  And my day went from yuck to wow in a flash!!!  My friend, Jen had sent me a wonderful piece of art. Not only is the envelope something to behold, the card inside is awesome! 

If this wasn't enough, Jen took the time to write a short note and include a little magnet which had, according to her note, provided the inspiration for the envelope and card. She went on to say that the magnet had, "started as an ACEO/ACT which I shrunk & transformed into a magnet for a craft show." Very cool, indeed!!!

Jen, thank you so much! And as the back of your card wished, the rest of my day has indeed been glorious!!

oh, thanks, Dave!! I was wondering how it would survive the trip to Ohio! :)
I'm glad it made you happy and I am thrilled to be a part of this.

@Felicity: I agree! I almost didn't want to open the envelope for fear of wreaking it but I just knew there would be something as wonderful inside. I was right!

@Erika: Me too! I've got something in mind for everybody for Valentine's Day!

@Celeste: Want to join in with us? Just email me your snail mail address and I'll add you to the list!

@jen: Again...so wonderful!!!
