she just left a comment a few days ago about how she, too, had mailed her feb exchange envelopes on the last day. i see by the postmark that this entry was postmarked on march 30 of last year. that must have been the deadline.
it reminded me of the very first time i sent something to the graceful envelope. it was in the early years when it was run by the smithsonian institution. it was not a contest, but a call for entries they were going to use to decorate a holiday tree. i crashed mine out on the last day - made some kind of boo-boo. drove to the store and bought glitter to hide the boo-boo and sat with my car door open, applying the glitter to the envelope and shaking the excess glitter on the snow covered pavement.
it's been a long time since i entered. i had enough winners to satisfy my need to have my work in the permanent collection of the smithsonian...but i just had an idea for this year's theme. luckily, i have lots of time to get it done. or...wait until the last day. christy...leave us a comment and tell us if 2015 was the first time you entered.
