When I saw L2E's themes for the Happy Mail swap, I couldn't resist doing a mix of art and science for the package I sent her!

This is the envelope and doo-dads that I came up with:



The envelope was made with watercolor paper and painted to look like plant cellulose under a microscope.



I've been working on developing my calligraphy skills and wanted to include a couple of science'ey quotes. The first is an explanation of why the sky is blue from Philip C. Plait. The second is one of my favorite quotes and something I really believe Carl Sagan was right about Smiley.



I also made a little tag and a series of petri dish circles with painted bacteria in them. They are harmless and germ free Smiley.



This is a science-themed banner and a gravity testing kit - in case my partner ever finds herself in a situation where it could come in handy.



Lastly, some periodic poetry! I made a bunch of letters inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements. They can be combined to make various different words (including a few bad ones Smiley).



I hope that this mail made by partner happy! It made me happy to create it for her.

Unintended consequence of making happy mail...wanting to go to McDonalds for a Happy Meal.

How fun and colorful and cute. I love it all.

Cripes, I knew I should have signed up for this swap.

Your partner should be very happy with it. I know I would have been.

Happy meal is good once in while, happy mail is always better.
