Please Mr. Postman

This rather largish stack of postcards went out on their merry way on Monday (that is a golf ball for scale). Here's hoping they make it to their intended destinations and don't get chucked immediately. My secret wish for them, should they not get a parade when they arrive, is that they get filed away to look on later or else recycled if they are not a favorite. They are my little lottery tickets... I buy them knowing full well that I might not win, but the happy dreams that they might keep me going. This is all part of the happy mystery of children's books. If it is meant to be, it will happen. When it happens, it is magic!

I just sent out a short stack. Gumball size. But they say that (as far as the lottery goes) your odds don't increase alot by buying more tickets. We'll see!

Congrats on getting the cards in the mail Nina! I know it always feels good to get them off. PS, if you do win the "lottery", please don't forget about all us little people :) Have a great weekend!

So true, Sharon. It only takes one, no matter if you send out 1 or 100... I hope the New Year brings us all New projects- all the best to you guys! :)
