A Year of Art Journals

There are not as many art journals circulating as there used to be, and I miss them.I think people are nervous because they don't always make it back.  You send the journal out, and you don't know if you'll ever see it again.  It's understandable how that would ruffle people.  Sometimes people put the journal away and forget, and other times the disappearance is more sinister.  Either way, I'm going to take the chance.  I'm looking at it from the perspective that it will be fun to see how many…See More

See you in the post.

I received your card.  I was delighted to see what you crafted the card from.  I'll get an item back to you but first I have a trip to Seattle this weekend.  Your address shows Vallejo.  I have good memories of Vallejo from 1975 when I was briefly stationed there at the Navy base.  I'll share more later.  Again, thank you for your card. The gerbil arrived unmarked.

That's okay ... cats in the art not necessary. Monopoly cards sound like a fun springboard.
