This other thing I do...

I have another blog. It's called "Questions from the back of the card," and it focuses on my involvement in the Post Crossing community. Post Crossing allows you to exchange postcards with people all over the world. It's very cool, and I have received over 1000 postcards in the three years (or so) that I have been a member. (If you're interested in learning more about it, go to www.postcrossing.com.)

Each year, on my birthday, I start a new Post Crossing project. One year, I asked people to send their favorite words. Last year, I ran a "scavenger hunt." This year, I am concentrating on the BACK of the card and asking people to send me thought-provoking questions (TPQs). So far, I've received over 100 of those.

Now this card doesn't have a TPQ, but it might actually be my most very favorite card of all time. WHAT A GREAT SENTIMENT! I love it. PLUS, the artwork has some kinship with the art of Zentangle in that in combines simple images in a way that's unique and intriguing.

Anyway, I thought I'd share this and invite you all to a) open your mind with wonder and b) stop by at the other place, by clicking here.

It Pays to Save EVERYTHING!

A star? Can I tangle a star? Welllllll, yes! On this old (old but not quite vintage) bisque porcelain star I had sitting around. Too cool to pop into the "donate" tub, but no idea what it would be good for. Guess I know now!
