creepy uncle

Well, he's not *that* creepy.
But he does have a penchant for saying things that don't need to be said out loud.

At a recent holiday gathering, he said to me, "I'm not used to seeing you in a dress. You've got legs!"

He sounded both surprised and pleased, but I'm not sure how this benefits him in any way.

I replied, "Most people do."

It just makes me wonder what makes people SAY things.
Was he just shocked that I looked good? (Usually he just makes fun of my "artsy" outfits.)
Did he think I needed a self-esteem-booster? (No, thanks.)
Was it in any way helpful? (Nope.)

Let's ignore the weird family vibes and look at a pretty photo of a rainbow of envelopes, instead. I painted them the other day, and couldn't resist piling them up and taking a picture. Man, I love rainbows.

talking hand

I don't know. My face probably doesn't understand. Neither does my other hand.

gutwrench postcard subscription for March

I really like her print for March. The interactive bit this time was to write a postcard confession to someone that you never got a chance to say ...for whatever reason.
Of course I sent it back to her weeks ago!

That's a link to the subscription with which I am so enamored.

Weirdly enough, the ink I had in my pen perfectly coordinated with the ink she'd used on her print. I was pleased as punch. :)
