Remember September 2012 edition

As I was watching the news this weekend, there was a story about the September 11 anniversary that is approaching.  It made me think again of that painful day & all the senseless violence & tragedy.  It also reminded me that it's time to start to design my envelope for the Remember September Mail Art Memorial Project.

The envelope above is the one I sent last year.  This year marks eleven years since that fateful day.  I'll be mailing my envelope again this year...and hopefully you may be inspired to do so, too.  I have no idea if there will ever be an exhibit of these pieces of mail art.  The archives on the website have only been updated through 2006, but my envelopes have never been returned as not deliverable...so I'll continue to send them each year...and as I create them & mail them off, it is my hope that anyone who sees it during it's transit through the mail will pause & remember, too.

Sunny on a Cold Gloomy Saturday

The rain started Friday & continued into Saturday...the temperatures dropped into the 60s.  It was a gloomy & cold summer day.  After being awake for a bit, Phil got called into work to drop off some back-up tapes & Sunny & I decided to go back to bed to watch TV & wait for him to get back home.  I was throwing her mousies & she was chasing them, but all of a sudden she decided to burrow under the quilt at the foot of the bed.  After burrowing around a good part of the bed, she settled back where she started & fell asleep.  At first, only her tail & a small part of a footie were visible.  I grabbed the camera & captured this...
Then this...
That face was begging me to stop with the flash pix already, so I did...for awhile.  After some stretching & getting more comfy, this was the scene...
And finally a big thumbs up!
All in all a pretty good Saturday for Sunny & me.

Sunny Days

Sunny is not a fan of the camera...and you can probably imagine what she's thinking here. 
One of these days I'll get a good pic with her pretty eyes open...not glaring at me like this. 
If she feels like I should. 
It's all up to her, you know.
