The Good, the Bad, and (Of Course) the Ugly

I'll start with the good, and I must say I am fortunate that I have lots of good in my life. I was able to get all the 2-page spreads done for the collaborative exchange I am participating in and get them into padded envelopes and addressed and I got the paper napkins ready to be mailed for a swap. The really good part was that the hubster was going out and agreed to go to the post office for me. He is really good! The bad part is that I forgot to get pictures of these pages. Hopefully the recipients will post pix and I can show them to you then.

Mail art is also good and I received this lovely card from my dear friend, Nancy, yesterday.

And today I received this lovely card from my Mom for my birthday. She assures me that I don't look a bit older than I did 10 days ago when she was visiting me. Can you tell she knows I like birds?

I have a couple of sketches also. First of all this little owlet:

And secondly this man (this is the ugly part) who just happened upon the page when I was writing the word Frog. I began the stylized F and realized it was a nose, so without much planning I added the rest of the face and he was born (for whatever that is worth).

That is all I have for today. It is absolutely freezing here today. The sun is shining but the wind is making it feel like -2 today. I am hoping for better weather soon.



  1. Vicki,

    I love the "Frog" man....very creative use of the "F"...I think he looks a bit he's ready to get into something...

    I always enjoy looking at your blog !

  2. Are you sure the frog man isn't the best part of the day/post? What fun and how creative to see him in the letter F. Great job!
