On Monday, I was at Bi-Mart buying ink and scrap-booking paper, carrying my postcards in my purse. I showed them to the guy in the audio/visual/electronics department, and he was pretty impressed. He said that he wished that he could order the extra long ink cartridges for me, that he has tried, but that Costco is the place to go for those. I knew that Costco carried them, but Bi Mart is much more convenient for me. Oh, well.
Next, I went over in the sewing/crafts/scrap-booking department, and there was a woman standing there looking over the paper selection. I couldn't help myself, I whipped out my postcards again and showed them to her. She was so surprised, but not because of my behavior. She said "Hi!" and gave me this look like, I know you. She also said, you don't remember me do you? I said no ... It was Cherry from Cherry's Jubilee! How funny. We first met at the post office a couple of years ago. We visited for a bit, and made tentative plans for getting together. I told her that I would like to come over and take pictures of her workspace and do a blog post on her. Stay tuned for that, but in the meantime here is the link to her blog, "Cherry's Jubilee". Cherry's work is absolutely stunning. We are also thinking of calling a meet-up for Central Oregon bloggers sometime.
Here are a few of the new post cards that I made this week; ones that are not of scenery. I've decided to sell my handcrafted, one of a kind postcards for $3.00 each:
On Monday, Ichiro and the New York Yankees pulled a fast one on us Mariners fans. Not only was Ichiro an instant Yankee, he was also playing for their team that very night. Because watching baseball is what we do around here on summer evenings anyway, I grabbed my camera and did my best to take pictures of Ichiro's first at bat as a NYY. It was pretty neat. The fans gave Ichiro a standing ovation, and he took off his hat and bowed to the crowd. The pictures aren't the best, but you can still get an idea of what was going on:
Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.
