Things have been crazy busy around here: we are doing our 27 hours of adoption classes, I'm mentoring a high school girl, leading a small group, teaching at a Spiritual Day Spa on Saturday, scrambling to get our house together to get our Foster license, and working full-time, plus what I consider the part time doings of being an artist.
Do you ever feel like the things you do to keep sane get put on the back burner just so you can survive? I know I'm not alone in this. And while I don't want to wish my life away, I'm looking forward to summer. So since there's been little time to do any new paintings, I've stocked the Etsy shop with these great new postcards which I ordered from moo.com.
They're glossy, printed on sustainably sourced paper, and they are 100% guaranteed to give a TKO to any bout of winter blues you may be feeling. And what ever happened to mail? It's a dying art form, I tell you. The girls from the Valentine Swap through the Stationery Place had something to say about it, and the ladies over at The Benevolent Postcard Society are a small militia against the virtual epidemic of anti-handwriting. When was the last time you put a postage stamp on something other than a bill?
If you are anywhere as busy as I, or have any form of email-overindulgence guilt, try sending a postcard next time. One or two sentences does the trick, and I promise, it's like sending sunshine. Try it! In the meantime, drool over all the new postcards I've posted for sale in the shop.
