I came home through the entrance by the mail boxes and decided I might as well clear out some junk mail. Under a pile of gym pamphlets (they won't make the pamphlet club suggested reading list) and some real estate postings was a marigold yellow envelope from Felicity! YAY! (I can't remember if I gave her my mailing address but now that I have hers...I can't wait to send something back!)
Upon tearing open the envelope, mine eyes first feasted upon this delicately wrapped package and these messages. I giggled out loud to myself! I love her "HAPPY" and "BIRTHDAY" fonts. It's always fun to see other people's handwriting too.
Felicity is such a curious artist. She always mixing media and trying new things out. I love to look at her quirky photos. Lucky me got some of her handmade envelopes created from old National Graphic maps. Both maps had Africa on them! On the larger one, I found Uganda, where my Mom (Kampala) and Dad (Mbale) are from. I think the brown ones are re-purposed from lunch bags which makes them useful AND environmentally friendly! To compliment the theme of reusing, Felicity sent me some seeds for planting.
And how fun is this pocket book? And these chiquita books? I put a quarter in front of one of the chiquita book so you could see the scale. How did her fingers manage to create these tiny wonders?
Gracias mi amigo creativo y pensativo!
You are such a nice blogger buddy too :)
(Hey Spanish speaking friends - did that make any sense?)
