Neat stuff -

I just found out about a new (actually maybe not really all that new) thing called decos....it's hard to explain, I'll let you read about it here Basically, they're like illuminated letters, or a little booklet that gets sent around and each person in turn decorates a page and then sends it onward. What a cool thing - letter writing is getting to be a lost art. It sure is special to get something handwritten in the mail, or anything in the mail of a personal nature, other than bills!

Kind of in the same vein, a dear lady I know named Ellie Tolbers of On The Lake Creations
started a Yahoo Group called Caring Crafters. Members of the group hand make cards and send them to people who need a lift. What a great way to use your artistic talents to brighten someone's day. You don't have to be an artist to do this. Consider joining!

Ah yes my dear! It is so good to see an American discovering the genteel qualities of the hand-written correspondence. In this day and age it is so good to see someone doing a fine art craft and appreciating the finer things in life. If only my neighbour, Elizabeth and her brother, Emmett could at least make an effort toward quality such as you have. Emmett is a wonderful pianist - mainly in that his playing sets off my own beautiful voice. Sincerely, Mrs. Richard Bucket (Pronounced "bouquet" dear)
