I am working on the final part of my Lost Art of Letter Writing, Expert.
In deciding what to do I chose The Monthly Mail Art Swap as I had never done mail art in all the years of being a FarmSister. We had to do the Mail Art Swap for two consecutive months, I am working on finishing my second month. So, the theme for May was Language, in any fashion you wish to present language. In words, flowers oh there are many more examples. As if that was not intimidating enough, my partner is MaryJane. I was so excited to have her as my partner but also a bit scared. Wondering if what I chose to do would it be good enough for Our MaryJane. I just did not know what to do or how to approach it. For days I worried about it. Then I remembered my wonderful phone call from MaryJane and how that phone call and MaryJane made me feel. Then I knew what I would create for her. I am half way through with it and I can not wait to send it to her and I hope she will like it as much as I enjoyed making it for her. But, I know she will she is MaryJane.
And I can not wait for her to share it on the thread. I love Secrets.


Big Hugs,
Debbie

Debbie - your idea of "the language of friendship" was a very creative & inspiring gesture. You did an awesome job on this one & I'm sure MaryJane would have loved it!!

Here is part of the journal. I used an accordion book which was fun to use. And yes MaryJane liked it.
