Lovely piles of outgoing mail!

Inside out security envelopes (from the Snail Mailer!)
A bit of an experiment... has anyone tried to send stickers like this?

Letter to my cousin just for fun!

Card to a faithful penpal!
In other news... I got my first roller derby wound!! I'll spare you the photograph, but the bruise just keeps getting more and more beautiful! It's the size of my fist, and I got it by falling flat on my hip. I'm so proud of it... but I am a bit anxious about practice tonight because if someone hits it or I fall again I will probably cry. Such is Derby.

I do have a few fun things coming up! Special post on Monday, and I have a little surprise on National Handwriting Day (Jan 23). Stay tuned!

  1. You're so very welcome for the package. Thank YOU for all your work on LEP.

    Roller Derby! I love it! I keep meaning to watch the local roller derby league in my city, but I keep finding excuses not to. I'm positive I will eventually though.

    1. It is my pleasure! :)

      Oh you definitely should!! Roller Derby is a whole 'nother world... it's so much fun for spectators & participants alike!
