if things go as planned (and they never do) there will be an envelope on monday, inspired by the off-topic on sunday. i used Post-It note tape (see below) to mask off the name and a place for the address. the tape is 1-inch wide, i cut it down to 1/2-inch. i wanted to do something that was faster, so grabbed the prisma color markers. layerd a little pale pink tombo to make the edges of the letters crisper. then filled in with gel pens and g-tecs. when all the space was filled in, i peeled off the tape and looked at it several times before i realized that i had spelled ALEX wrong. it was amazing how long i had looked at it before i saw the error. oh well. at least i know how to do this really fast. it was a fun envelope to have on my desk to use as a mindless activity to recharge my brain after too much hard thinking. clearly, i have to think extra hard on pretty routine tasks, like spelling fairly short words and names.
