I recently received some "fun mail" - that I have been meaning to post about.
I started reading one of Lorraine's blogs called Friday CPR (stories from an elementary school office which simply made me laugh - since I work in an elementary school office) . . . anyway - I started looking at her other blog and couple of weeks ago there was this post . . .http://papervernissage.blogspot.com/2012/02/this-little-piggy.html
I left a comment and in return had this pig mailed to me. It is my job to decorate it. I think I needed some "fun mail" - It seems like mail isn't as "fun" as it used to be. I communicate through e-mails, and Facebook . . . thanks to cell phones - I can call my mom every day - without running up a huge phone bill like I did 30 years ago. These things are nice - but there seems to be less "fun mail" . . . not as many letters or cards in the mailbox as their used to be. So I received a boxed pig and some things to decorate it . . . and even better it was in a box stamped with . . . Pigs - of course. Receiving this pig in the mail was part of the fun for me. I don't usually comment to do things like this - but maybe the "Iowa Girl" in me was drawn to this project of decorating a pig. For whatever reason . . . I now get to decorate a pig - which I have started working on. I will post that when I am finished. Thanks Lorraine - great idea!
