The view from Hurricane Ridge- Olympic Mountain Range.
Isn't it gorgeous?
I can get in my car and be there in 20 minutes.
Maybe I'll photograph may mail up here this weekend.

Lily loves to hike with me.

 And I can't think of a better spot to stop and have lunch .

Catching the sunset is the the best part.
I'm so blessed to have this in my back yard.

Gotta go! It's time to take the kids to school. 
Later's pumpkin carving time.

Have a great day!

Outgoing Mail

I've been having soooo much fun with mail art lately.  I think that Fall and all that it brings, really inspires me.

I carved the rubber stamp that you see on these envies- sure had fun with that project (I made it at midnight after the kids were fast asleep).

Inside that BIG skeleton envelope is a silly paper doll (see the 1st picture in this post...She is a Viking skeleton)- of course I sealed the whole thing up before photographing it first. I seem to do that a lot.  I guess it's because I'm SUPER excited to get these little peaches in the mail.

How about this CREEPY spider? Yuck, huh? It's a tape transfer, and it's taped over a picture of Donner Pass (eewwwww).

-I just love taking pictures of my mail in this rock bed-

See a theme?  Yup- I LOVE HALLOWEEN!  The "darker" the better.

I don't know what I'm going to do after October 31st- will it still be acceptable to play with spiders, pumpkins and skeletons after the Holiday?  Day Of The Dead buys me some time- yeah!

What Fall backdrop can you come up with to photograph your mail?

Spooky Graffiti!

Had a play date with a friend and her kids, and we went to Fort Warden State Park in Port Townsend, Washington.  The Military Bunkers are SUPER fun to run through and around.  I found some SPOOKY graffiti to snap some shots of.  I think I'm going to carve a rubber stamp.....ya think?

 How about this guy (naughty)?  LOVE IT! 

This one? Not so spooky.

Did CHLOE do these? Hope she doesn't mind if I make some stamps out of her wall art.

YES....we made our kids walk through the SPOOKY, LOoooong, pitch black, Bunker halls (they only screamed a little bit). The only light we had was me taking pictures with the flash. 

 Builds character...right?
Well..... at least it gives me good fodder for writing letters.... and a new rubber stamp or two.

Is it raining at your house?
It is here.
It's good weather for making mail!
