lucky ME!

When I got the mail today....this wonderful, nondescript package fell out of the box.
I saw the return address and realized that I was the "Lucky One"

My friend Taylor (in South Carolina) has been making some pretty 
wonderful booklet/journals.          ( )
She posted this one the other day....saying she was sending it off to someone.
wow .... me!
I love all the little secret little pockets and envelopes. This one has a neat "self portrait" on the envelope and a tiny card with a bird on it. The opposite page has a graphed tag in the pocket.

What a perfect little circle around this lovely face.

I adore this graph page. The stamp is marvelous and I have always loved graph paper - ledgers.

This bird really caught my eye. It was hiding under the black mesh, peeking

...And at the end, Frida Kahlo is doing a quick sketch.

Oh Taylor, thank you soooo much for this masterpiece.
I am looking forward to adding my little bits here and there - finding small places to tuck a few words. This is really going to be so much fun.

Oh, and thanks for the sweet compliment about my handwriting. Glad you like it....


  1. I am so glad the book got to you and you like it. I thought you would figure out my hint of the best handwriting. Anyway enjoy and write and doodle away. xxoo,

  2. Congratulations Jone to such a beautiful book and gift.
    I love Taylors style!
    Have a nice weekend

  3. Hi Jone, I couldn't find your email address so I'm contacting you here. My deadline for the fundraiser is May 10th...however, some art will be arriving late. Can you get your contribution by the 15th? If so, I'd love to have you join in. Otherwise, perhaps the next one. If you send me your email address I can send you the particulars.
    Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness and please let me know what you decide.
