First of all, a very Happy New Year to you all!
Can you believe it’s 2015?
It’s now officially the year that Marty McFly traveled to in the movie Back to the Future II.
What? You haven’t seen Back to the Future II?! What are you doing reading this blog? Go right now and watch it. Now! Go! Shoo!
I’m still waiting for my hoverboard to show up…
Meanwhile, what HAS shown up is wonderful, fabulous mail in my mailbox! And I want to share some of it with you. (By the way, I have just one New Year’s resolution this year: Catching up on all my mail. If you’ve been waiting patiently to hear back from me, please be patient just a wee bit longer…)
How would you like to find an envelope addressed like THIS in your mailbox?
This is from Lydia and Hannah, and the envelope was HAND-LETTERED and decorated by Lydia (I couldn’t put all of it on here, because I want to keep their return address private). Absolutely knocked my socks off. Someone has a promising future as a graphic designer and artist, don’t you think?
Inside was a letter, also BEAUTIFULLY decorated …
… and so very enthusiastic and kind it just made my heart sing! I am so humbled and grateful to have readers like all of you.
In addition to this fabulous letter (not gonna show you the other side, because of personal information), there was this very clever and accomplished drawing:
If you click on it, it should enlarge for you. It’s by Hannah, and isn’t it wonderful? I LOVE the idea of showing the characters’ hairstyles — from the back! So unique! Your artistic career is inevitable too, Hannah, from what I see!
Thanks, girls, for starting my new year off with a bang! And look for a reply from me in your mailbox soon…
