Ever received a postcard from Hell???

I HAVE!Image hosted by

I'm not sure what to think about this...but then maybe I should be more concerned for the person writing to me FROM Hell! Image hosted by

Actually, it's from my Crochetville Secret Pal. Image hosted by She's in Norway. And there obviously is a Hell, Norway. Whew.

On Tuesday our little cousin Tori (age 9?) came over to play with Kelley, Jessie and TJ. I decided to show the girls how to make the recycled envelopes I learned about last week. Here are the envelopes we made.

I loved the one with the words. Kelley did that. The advertisement actually read "Why Man Invented Fire". But after she cut it, I thought it turned out really funny..."Why Man In Fire"?

Remember paper dolls? I discovered them again online and am so happy to be able to print them out for free. Kelley and Jessie have enjoyed picking out ones they want, and then I would print them out along with coordinating outfits. If you're interested, a good website is here. Of course, you can always just do a search for "paper dolls" with your favorite search engine.

Oh, and I don't want to forget to show you the beautiful origami crane I received in the mail on Monday. It's a RAOK from Julie in Massachussetts. She enclosed it in a recycled envelope, too! Isn't it cool? Thank you so much, Julie! RAOKs are FUN!

Those envelopes are so much fun, I'm totally addicted! Glad to hear my little crane arrived safe and sound.

There is a little place in Missouri called Hell. We went to the Ozarks on vacation one year and stopped in there just for hoots. We got a bumper sticker that said "We went to Hell on vacation'' :)

Cool postcard!

Aren't those cranes cool! I got one the other day. He's sitting up on our mantlepiece. Makes me want to make some homemade envelopes, too!
