Long overdue for praise is a Trashpo Boekie of magnificent standards from Amy Irwen... Changing the clocks for Daylight Savings Time made me realize I'd better do some postings--bad form to be so tardy with one's thank yous that the seasons change first--heaven forbid!!
Amy's piece doesn't need much commentary; it's elegance in pictures will suffice pretty decently... But for some background, her minature boekie is a "fatty"--so crammed with scrap-making material and goodies, and so thick and hefty that it needed a rubber-ized band to contain it all! It is a compendium of several other mail artists' scraps and contributions. I think many of you will recognize certain pages as "inspired" by common friends.
Also it came in the most unusual and unique of packages--a clear plastic egg carton lined with brightly colored tissue paper. To have found such a colorful package in my mailbox was like finding something that magic elves had left hidden in a secret tree nook or something.
And as if the art boekie wasn't enough to sate my appetite, some additional gifts were included in the package--minature yarn balls! Well, I didn't have to think too hard about what to do with those. Yarn is fer knittin' !! And it provided the perfect inspiration for a return thank you to arrive in Amy's mailbox some time in the near future...
And now for your viewing pleasure, the documented artwork...
Thank you kindly, Amy, for such a special package!
