More Post and more journal pages., and more Sun

Yesterday I did NOT have to go to the dentist's - yoohoo! That gave me a nice day for painting, crafting and playing around. I successfully forgot to do the H*******K, which was good, as I made a lot of mess playing. And we have had several days of warm and Sunny weather, a real Indian Summer, and the first summer we have had this year!
I received a wonderful postcard from Lenna's postcard swap, this time from Nancy Roberts. It has been made from painted material, and has been embroidered, stitched and collaged - just wonderful. I am going to have a wonderful collection of hand made postcards, which I will treasure.



For my journal pages I made another collage, which then reminded me of the text of *I'm on the top of the world* from the Carpenters, so I have included part of the text.




I also spent some time making more Halloween boxes, but I will save them to show tomorrow. I think making Halloween things is addictive.

Hope you all have a great day, take care, and thanks for stopping by!
