yippee...yippee.... and yipppppeeeee


yippeee.....
this mosaic is made out of my blog winners prizes .... i sent all three of them a print .. they all chose different ones .... and they all will get happy doodle-iscious big envelopes in the mail......

there is something INFINITELY appealling about drawing on an envelope .... doodling around the addresses JUST so ..... saving a space for the stamp or sticker ....... filling it up ... but not tooooo full...... then going to the post office and letting the worker admire them ..... and talking about the doodling ... and , oh, i don't mind if you ask what's in them ..... yes, that's right, i AM an artist ....oh, why thank you ..... sure, next time i'll try to remember not to seal them up so you can see the prints ...



and then there is this mail loveliness:

yippee, yippeeeeeee.....
my pal jeannie sent me a present .... she found two antique skeleton keys and thought of meeeeee .... aren't i the lucky one??
jeannie darling, you rock! thanks, honey.....


and how did i spend my day????

yippeee, yippeeee, yippeeeeeeee.....
i was going to do art today, but decided to take a go at sophie's closet ..... and i gutted it ... and purged ... and made bag upon bag upon bag to donate .... and then once the closet was done, i did the bookshelves .... and then that looked great but the desk was a wreck .... and the baby dolls .... and the bin of stuffed animals ... and the drawers under her bed ..... and every single solitary nook and cranny and drawer and box and bin and basket and shelf .... CLEAN ....not just clean .. but SO clean .... and i put in a new bedside table and lamp .... and then one thing turns into another and we did a whole redecorate .... i think we hung about 20 things up on her walls ....go check out the tags on this photo in flickr ...... she is so cute and PROUD of her new tidy and decorated space ... and i am .... well....i'm proud too of all our hard work ... but mostly ....i'm just relieved!!! .... while i did her room, andy did drew and julia's closets with them....so ....winter? bring it on! our closets are ready .....

mara covets the green in sophie's room
And soo glad you liked the keys
my lame attempt at envelope art is not as good as yours -- but I will keep at it
it makes me smile
