First Correspondance from the Letter Writer's Alliance!


Short sweet, straight to the point, as all first correspondances should be.
I'm pleased that I'll be trading with an older man (who is a master decorative painter, no less) as it's different from the people I usually mail with.

I can't wait to get home and type out a response!

Latest Obsession:

Project Runway.

I'm not always a huge tv fanatic, but when I find something I like, I REALLY like it.

For example, Season 8 of Project Runway.
My obvious favourite, right from the beinning was Mondo. I love his weird outfits and how he cried because he didn't have any friends. I loved his weird colour combos and brain splitting pattern combinations.

I always make sure to do my homework on the internet and found that all of the runway collections and the Lincoln Center for Fashion Week have been leaked, and the top ten contestants showed collections, so no one knew who was in the top three of the television show (since fashion week was before the airing of the tv show...make sense?).

Here are some peaks at my fav collections, from April and Mondo!

Mondo Guerra, what can I say, I would pretty much love to own all of this shit.
Super fun, young, totally wearable for most girls. Kinda street.

And, la piece du resistance, My FAVE EVER!
Polka dot maxi dress with accentuated shoulders! Swooon


And then April shocked everyone with the most beautiful and soft (but still hard) colour palette of creams and greys, and I think she did it perfectly, disagreeing with every other review on the internet, but as Joy on the View would say: So what, who cares? I even really like those weird bandage headwraps, I think they're quirky.

Do you guys have any faves?

Definitely not appropriate for work....

Lotsa boobs, in the best way ever.
Great song, great and weird visuals.

Thanks Colly C, for bringing this to my attention.

Over and Out!

Wish I Was Here!


I just got a lovely new group of old photos from my favourite antique (junk) shop. It was filled with gems, and I got a great deal, as always.

I'm preparing for my big apartment move, happening over the next two weeks, by writing letters to people and revisiting letters written to me by people. I'm hoping to make a new zine exploring all of the wonderful and weird mail I've gotten during my (mostly) active mailing career.


I've been taking photos and organizing and arranging some of my favourite pieces, but I feel their lacking something. I'd like the photos to be a little bit more special, or different. I'm thinking of working in props of some sort....I have so many collections of goodies, and I'd like them to be apart of the composition as well.

What do y'all think? Suggestions? Please?!

A Day At The Fair!

A surprise found Jenner and Chloe and I one day when we went to Value Village.
Not only did I have the best shopping trip ever, with hot scores like a pair of leather witchy boots, and a faux leapord print fur jacket, THE FAIR WAS IN TOWN!!


And the magic continued into the next evening when I attended a potluck at Sandras house, who taught my Tactile Notebook and the Written Word class. The students from both former classes attended. Great conversation was had throughout the whole night and it was great to see all my classmates whom I had not seen all summer. Check out this inspiring table setting!


It was on this day that I officially realized:
Autumn is here.
