  There is a nip in the air, the jalepeno peppers are hanging red on the branches of my pepper plants and it is time to start smoking the peppers for Chipotle en Adobo. This is a traditional Fall endeavour, which requires much of my attention. But the largest consumer of time in the Fall is the celebration of the biblical Fall feasts, Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Feast of Atonement) and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). It has been is an exciting and busy time of year with much to do in preparation for the feasts. We have just rolled in today from a week (eight days actually), of camping with our fellowship in the mountains of North Carolina for the celebration of the Feast of Sukkot. I have unpacked and put most of our belonging back in the house but I still have a mountain of laundry to do. I will soon have the laundry out of the way so it won't be long before I will be able to sit down a do a real  blog entry.
  I have received some really fun mail art to share with you in my next entry and for this time, I am going to post a sneak preview of a new artistamp in the final stages of developement. If anyone is interested in receiving my newest artistamp please leave a comment for me with you addy or e-mail me your addy at For now I must go, but I hope soon that I will see you in the mail!

  3. Lovely artistamp. I spoke about Artistamps as part of my talk on Mail Art on Saturday morning. People were quite excited about this aspect of mail. I'd love one of your stamps to share next time when I talk or do a workshop. By the way, would you like some topographical map paper?

  4. I would be glad to send you some of my past artistamps and a First Day of Issue post card with my newest stamp when it is done. Just give me your snail mail addy in the comment box or e-mail it to me @ I would love some topo map paper if you have some to share!
