Mail Art entry 8a

Ever have one of those ideas that seem wonderful, but the execution of it becomes more time consuming than you thought?  Welcome to Mail Art entry 8?

Mail Art entry 8b

Using a clear envelope, I thought it would be great to put some glitter paint into it.  Good idea – until I realized how long it was going to take for it to dry.  After approximately 7 days and numerous attempts at blow drying the inside of it, the paint dried!  I added two pieces of paper to the inside with the words Peace and Joy on each.  As an added interest, I cut up pieces of white paper and added those.  At last I placed on the mailing labels, and cut up other mailing labels stuck onto the outside to create a design.  May your endeavors move along much quicker than that one!

Cold Weather and Colorful Tea!

This will be an extremely short entry.

To best sum it up, sometimes there is nothing like spending some very good quality time-sharing and sipping tea while visiting with friends!  Russ discovered a wonderful blend of 1 Tblspn. turmeric, 1/8 tspn. cayenne pepper, 1/4 tspn. cinnamon and 1/4 tspn. ginger with plain hot water, hot tea or coffee makes a delicious and very soothing mix!  I added honey, too!

So as not to disappoint, I did a bit more to the Fairy House this morning, touches of gold and green glitter!  The polyurethane turned out beautiful!
