We made some postcards out of packing tape a bit back. And then we mailed them. They were received without any issues. So exciting!
We got this fabulous idea from All About Collage, by Todd Oldham, which we picked up at the library along with all his other books in that series. They are pretty swell—nice big photos and simple clear directions.
We put the stamp over the tape and everything else was sandwiched in between. Liddy even got the brilliant idea to add flowers inside of hers. Mail art makes me (and the kids) so very happy. I want to send a can again.
recent books I have read:
I am almost done with Some Kind of Fairy Tale (I really like it so far) and I finished The Best of Youth about 2 weeks ago which was light, yet sad and funny. It was nail-biting in a good way. For some reason I was wanting a tragic ending, which it did not have. This book reminded me of a less zany version of a Johnathan Ames novel.
I am so obsessed with the book list you all helped me with, I can't thank you enough. I've read 4 books from that list already that I never would have found (I think some titles were in the comments, too) and Pete has read Dog Stars. Thank you!
