stamp.

Standard

when i went into the post office to mail something and buy stamps

i was approached in line

by a postal worker who tried to help out and save me time

by offering me stamps

“i have some pretty flowers or american flags available.”

i must appear to be a feminine and/or patriotic gardener

it was a nice gesture but i chose to wait a minute and select my own

when i made it to counter and the postal worker opened her book

she offered me hearts and flowers

(is it my lavender body lotion?)

i asked to look through the book and chose the two above –

jimi hendrix and jfk

she looked at me, nodded, saying

“interesting combo.”

interesting does not even begin to describe them.

“genius is essentially creative;

it bears the stamp of the individual who possesses it.”

art candy!!!

what a lucky find. while visiting my daughter in perth, australia i was delighted to discover that the friend we were meeting for tea was actually jenni, the artist behind the amazing world of art candy. jenni, modestly describes her work as, ‘sweetness with soul,’ and that is an understatement. i’ve admired her work online for quite a while, and am happy to know that others around the world have discovered her. jenni hand-makes unique cards, paintings, alphabets, and other magical delights. while there, i saw her works in progress and was even allowed a peek into her glitter drawer. it was an amazing morning spent with a wonderful, creative spirit. since art school, jenni has been inspired by a love of language, especially slang, colour, and a sheer exuberance for life. if you have a moment, take a peek into her work and her world, through the link i’ve provided. i think you’ll be delighted by what you find.
