Finally! I made it! FIT Quick and Dirty....


The first big batch of Free Giveaway Packs are in the hands of the postal service and heading your way! I have 6 more to pack and they will be mailed tomorrow. Fun!!! Here is a little sneak peek!

This is 174 year old ledger paper. It is a store ledger, but I have no other information on it's origins. Your pack has two beautiful, original sheets. Both sheets have writing but on one of the sheets I have printed some of my antique egg prints. Unfortunately the eggs are only ink jet printed. I tried printer after printer and no one would run the ledger paper through their machines. Something about policy, blah, blah, blah, only commercially approved paper, blah, blah, blah, the paper's so old it would catch on fire in our machine, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, I would recommend laser copying the page and using that copy in your art. Ink jet ink will not hold up in most applications. I hope you guys love these!!!!


My sweet husband is out of town this week and I am here with the boys:) Makes for one busy Momma! I am posting this from my new computer which works like a charm:) Thank you for all of your positive computer vibes:) Yeah!!!
Ok, real fast because I have monkeys waiting for me to read bedtime stories. The FIT today is soooo sweet! I can't pass up the baby christening gown photos. Ever. I must have 100's. But they are all so sweet:) This little cutie melts my heart! I want to snuggle him in the crook of my neck:)

Jamie,

I was in shock, when i saw mail
from you, I do think I squealed
with delight, outdoors in public...
what will the neighbors think!

It is so beautiful and unique, even
the smell, reminds one of yonder
days...what was it like? Love it,
can't wait to decide how to use it!
Thanks for your kind words and advice!

I also ordered some items from you,
at your store, ETSY....YOU inspire
me to get busy, get my work/art out there! Thanks for
the rare gift!
