new penpal - new scanner

i had to buy stamps. the heat index is over 100. i rewarded myself by buying a new printer scanner, to have at the house, so i don't have to drive to my mom's house to use hers. i had to drive to a second store to get what i needed and it was a long hot trip. my reward when i got home was this envelope from candy, in oregon. it is paste paper. she wrote my name in the paste...way cool.

she has a blog at www.mypaperarts.com

elizabeth told her about the blog and candy saw that i was wishing i had an envelope exchange pal from each of the 50 states and she volunteered to be oregon. welcome aboard candy :-)

the list of states still available may be viewed if you click [Read more] below





so - I have 10 envelope pals if I
 reassign Jackie to Minnesota, because

  1. Beautiful envelope. I thought of Jill Quillian when I saw it.
    Enjoy your new scanner! Happy you survived the heat. I don't handle the high dew points well.
