Gem from Diane Keys

This little packet sat on the table for 24 hours - an eternity - staring and tempting at each pass by.

A friend suggested that it NEVER be opened, 'it is perfect as it is'. I reached for the scissors and carefully cut open the edge without stitching. Diane, it is no surprise you are the reigning queen of trashpo. Here is a peek into this marvel. thanks.…

John Bennett and Matthew Stolte - When Partial Words Collide - and adding Jim SantAmour!

Hallowe'en and the Minotaur

Firstly, I wish to thank the people at the New Tombstone group for participating in the First Annual Hallowe'en Ball.  The Ball was definitely a success.  Secondly, some of you may remember when Superhero sent out Minotaur cards.  He sent one to me, and I made a poem and piece of artwork in response.  I asked him not to share them because an online magazine wished to publish them.  If you are interested, you can read the poem and see the artwork here: …
