* Congratulations Katie ...

Dear Katie.  Here's what to look for .... coming to you .... in the M A I L!  It will be a Good Mail Day.  I do hope you like the loot.  Have Fun.  I hope it doesn't take three years to arrive at your door.  I'm going to try a new method of mailing out of country.  It's called Mex Express.  Supposed to be more reasonably priced than Fed Ex.  I cannot send parcels through my private mail service.  Fed Ex is enough to break the bank ... so we will see what kind of service Mex Express gives us.  Hope for the best, Katie, and let me know when it arrives.  Thanks.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  I am playing Full Tilt Boogie, with Mary Ann Moss and a bunch of crazy craft monkeys.  Check out the photographs on Mary Ann's side bar at Dispatch From LA to see what we are up to.  Incredible.  I am making my 'practice journals' out of old "Donna Parker" mystery novels.  HA!  A great course.  Working on book binding.  Now that's something I didn't think I could ever get into, but you know, it's so beautiful looking when you are finished ... it could become addictive.  (well, only if there is a journal attached) ...

Smile.  Have you ever noticed how easily puppies make human friends?  Yet all they do is wag their tails and fall over.  ~Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course, 1997


  1. Lucky Katie! Hope it doesn't get held up too long at cistoms, either. Havea nice day dancing your full tilt boogie! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Fab Mail Day for Katie! Congratulations! You are motivating me to send more mail art!

  3. Wow...what a box! Katie will be over the moon when she receives it!

  4. Congratulations Katie - I love to think of all the mail carriers who will smile as this box moves from one location to the next. Enjoy!

  5. WOW. Look at the box you altered. Now that will turn heads as it travels to Katie. I hope the travel time is short because waiting would be painful, for me anyway.

    Love your latest book, Donna. You have the binding down pat.


  6. Even the box that holds it looks amazing! I'll let you know when it arrives. Have a fun day creating!
