Just ran out to the store to get a new Sharpie ultra fine point marker. Raided the paper bin. Pulled out some *********** and my ****** *****. Wish I could find my *****, but I will figure out how to manage without it.

I can't wait to get started! But I have to... Sad  I really need to make the potato salad for dinner before I begin, because otherwise I will get lost in the project, lose track of time, and the husband will be home and hungry, and there won't be anything made to go with his steak.

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

My envelope is DONE! And I think it came out pretty nicely. I was able to incorporate 5 things I discovered about my partner (from a wee bit of friendly stalking) into the art.

Now I just need to decide what to stuff it with, and I can mail it out!

I just came across my bottle of Tack it over & over glue- I am going to to a couple of test envelopes to see how well it will stick- if it works you should be able to open the envelope without damaging the art work

it worked! it worked! Aleene's tack it over and over creates a resealable envelope with a strong seal that will open without destroying the art work
