Mister Postman


ps. One last bit of shameless self-promo from me. This is from a few days ago now, but here's what the postman brought me earlier this week.

Well, okay, he didn't bring the bobble head T-ball player - when the Short One saw my nice trophy, he insisted that I get down his special trophy and put the two of them together. As a set, they make a decent statement on our family interests, I think.

I find it curious that the necklace arrived back home from England on the same day that my advance copy of Enchanted Adornments: Creating Mixed-Media Jewelry with Metal, Clay, Wire, Resin & More (woo-hoo!) arrived, since the piece is related to both endeavors.

I have been reading Enchanted Adornments since it arrived, and yes, it was so worth the wait. (And I'm not just saying that because "Cabinet of Curiosities" is in the gallery). This is as beautifully-crafted a book as you are likely to see - just enjoyable to sit and flip through, apart from all the stunning amount of information that's packed into the book.

Don't tell my husband, but I've had this weird urge to kiss the postman - he's been bringing me so many goodies lately.

You should kiss that postman...perhaps it will bring you more luck! But I don't think you need more luck with talent like yours. I am so jealous of you who have your book. It sounds like a delicious diversion. Can't wait now for my copy! Thanks for sharing and kudos to you and the SO for your great accomplishments! Enjoy the day!

Cynthia, Your request gave me the extra push I needed to move the piece from my idea book to reality. It's been a great year, as a result. Thank you!

Erin and Cindy, If I recall the official release date correctly, it should be... TOMORROW, right?
