letters in the mail

August 26, 2011

Velma ( www.velmabolyard.blogspot.com) and I did a trade, she asked me if I would like a full set of alphabet stamps – in a box. And this arrived, I’m so overwhelmed I’m just wandering around talking to myself. It’s amazing, in its original wooden box 21″ X 8″, upper case and lower case letters, dollar signs, questions marks etc.

BUT

that’s not all, a wonderful assortment of Velma’s handmade papers

they are so beautiful I’m going to put them in a box and fondle them for a while.

 if you haven’t handled handmade paper each sheet is an individual work of art, the texture and feel is indescribable.

Thank you, Velma. I’m overwhelmed. 

when the mail-lady grand-daughter Carrie was here. We were experimenting with the pastel dye sticks.   

rubbing the sticks over the letter stamps transfers enough of the dye to leave a good impression on fabric.

 

 

 

this is “cool” – Christmas in August!

 

 

 what’s next – T-shirts?
