uncle. Uncle. UNCLE! UNCLE!!! I’ve said UNCLE dammit. Now get off of me already! February you are kicking my butt this month with your chicken-with-its-head-cut-off schedule. I’ve had enough of your wedgies, noogies, indian rope burns, and tickling til it hurts. UNCLE!! Ha, but you have not kept my mail from showing up. February you jerk!
The Phenomenal papercutting (with a capital P.) that I commissioned from Jenny Lee Fowler for my nieces 3rd birthday. I emailed her pictures of the girls holding bouquets of spring flowers, and by collaborating with my ideas she came up with this. Her papercuts really make special gifts, and I hope my brother and sister-in-law love it as much as I do! To see lot’s of examples of her work go to her flickr, etsy shop, or blog.
I received my collaborative journal from Sweet Jessie. Contained within are pages from all different sources, everything from vintage children’s books to maintenance manuals. It also has lots of blank spaces for writing and drawing. If you would like to make something similar check out the photo journal tutorial from Five and a Half.
The reason Valentine’s Day is my absolute favorite holiday is because it’s all about LOVE, and because of handmade tokens of LOVE! Lea (Batspit) sent me this sweet heart mobile, and I adore it!
I was completely surprised to recieve this thoughtful handmade valentine from my niece Caroline. Inside she had tucked her school picture – love it! Anyway, thank you mailbox, and those who have filled it! You’ve given me the ability to stand up to that school yard bully – February!
