This is going to be short and sweet. I gave myself my IVIG last night which always leaves me achy and then I had physical therapy first thing this morning. Big mistake. I hurt. With the help of my husband; I did however get my act together enough to get the first giveaway gathered together and mailed.
I hardly ever delete my photos no matter how bad they are. The background for the CD and cover is a very badly out of focus photo of a Nasturtium. I think it made a great background; much better than a solid color. Going to the post office after my afternoon Doctor appointment (long day) turned out to be a pleasant experience. The winner lives in Thailand so I had to deal with international mail; which I haven't done since my son served a 2 year mission in Brazil several years ago. The postal worker was very helpful and because it was international mail it took longer to mail it. While I was filling out the paperwork this delightful postal worker and I had an interesting conversation on mail art and the photo I had placed on the envelope. Even with as tired and in pain as I was, this discussion lifted my spirits and made me glad that I have decided to share my art with others. Not so long ago I would not have felt that my art work was worth sharing much less believed it would bring pleasure to other people's lives. Even at 55 I am learning and growing not just in my artist endeavors but also personally. Once again serendipity brings joy into my life.
