@Edel I found the perfect thing to send you … doesn’t fit any themes but you’re going to love it. I’ll get it in tomorrow’s mail.

I’m always up for birdies! :blue_heart: But I’m also a themes optional person so maybe I shouldn’t vote either. :wink:

All you theme-breakers! How ruuuude doing your own happy thing instead of the group happy thing :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Oh no! I updated it on my end. Hopefully everything finds its way to you eventually!

How about a combo month?

There’s an old German fairy tale, Little Peter’s Journey to the Moon, which involves a May beetle called Mr. Zoomzeman. Now I’ve got a picture in my mind :smiley:

You are so sweet.

I was very annoyed yesterday, a package that I’d sent to you got returned The postoffice had printed a label to replace my hand written address, they could not have gotten your address more incorrect, they dropped out numbers and changed the country to the US. So that’ll go back in the mail for a second try!

That would give me the perfect excuse to buy a cool moon item I’ve been drooling over!

I love my moons! In fact, I mailed a Moon themed card this week! I also saw astronaut and moon stamps online.

Oh, I want to see that story!

I just looked up the original illustrator, Hans Baluschek. I’d never heard of him before, I’m so glad I have now!

I super appreciate those letters going to friends & family. My neighbour is still stuck inside with knee brace & walker. Now we are under stay-at-home orders so everybody is getting out even less! A mailbox full of happy is incredibly cheering, now more than ever :slight_smile:

oh, I just read about your neighbor! I know when Jim had his knee surgery, his moods went from anger to depression not only from the pain but from not being able to do everyday things for quite a while…it is tough to remain positive when you rely on others to do almost everything for you!

Please PM me her address…does she do any crafting herself? Do you know if she likes to read?

She majored in ART! I am trying to convince her to join in here. She paints the most delightful things, her avatar on my phone is a darling frog she did with pencil crayons whilst isolated in hospital with her bum knee. It’s awesome. Her family are big readers, they have a library room in their house, it’s completely stuffed with books!
