Okay, so I thought I would submit one of my paper bag flags to Green Craft magazine. The deadline is March 15th. Nothing was going right. I bought the wrong paint, the news paper is now using a thinner paper and the list of things that went wrong goes on.
After all the frustration I decided to skip it, cut myself some slack. Well Tuesday morning I bounced out of bed ( I'm a morning person what can I say) and decided I was going to knock out one of my flags that night and mail it the next day.
As I am gathering up my supplies I notice the pile of strangely familiar post cards sitting on my kitchen bar. I had received them in the mail the day before from Misty whom I swap mail art.
As I start work on my flag I decide to not follow my old pattern and go in another direction. So clean slate. I thought I would add the patriotic postcards. As I'm working my brain is turning.......
Then a little something starts to take shape. Those postcards...so familiar....
I THINK I SENT THEM TO CORRINE LAST FALL!
The Corrine who is purging her home and studio as you read my post. The Corrine who also swaps mail art with Misty.
Are you following me?
I sent them to Corrine, she sent them to Misty who then sent them back to me.
( A lot of miles on those cards!)
I got them back just in the nick of time! They saved my project.
I did get the flag mailed on Wednesday. I had to go to the store after work and buy packing tape and grommets. I finished the flag and packed it up in the JoAnn Fabric parking lot.
Happy to report that it's on its way to California.

There is the chance I have those same postcards packed away somewhere??
Fat chance, I think we passed them around!
Ladies??? What says you?
