Postal obsession ...

My latest crossing! Kinda like a pen pal but without the commitment of writing to the same person each time. You sign up, get addresses of up to 5 people, send out postcards, wait for them to receive and register your cards, then you're eligible to have postcards sent to you! A fun diversion for a paper, stamp and post office geek like myself! Learn more at

Journal heaven

I'm in major journal love right now ... finished making the new journal last night (pics to come soon), then ordered this FABULOUS old French journal from Fleaing France ... swoon .... I'm going to be in journal heaven ...

LOOK! Paper lined in a grid format. Aged creamy/white coloring. Ahhhh!

Winter doldrums have officially set in ...

You know the winter doldrums have hit when you're excited about going to a new grocery store ... but then again, look at all the beautiful colors and shapes!

Snow Day

Hung this darling watercolor in my studio today. I got it at a flea market awhile ago, and on this chilly, snowy day it's perfect!

Fun in Philly

Took a quick trip to Philadelphia on Sunday to attend Clover Market. Hadn't been to a flea market in awhile, so had a ball!

Before leaving town, squeezed in a quick stop at the Magic Gardens on South Street. I'd heard about it, but never been. Walls and grottos covered with mosaics made from tiles, bottles, bicycle wheels, name it, it was probably stuck in there somewhere... W*O*W...

Helvetica good deal!

The question is not why would I buy 6" gold vinyl numbers on sale for $3.75, but why *wouldn't* I?! Some are going into my journal ASAP ...
