  5. Ah, she looks like a pioneer and brings such beautiful truth. Now I don't feel so bad about my own box love...
    thank you, Lynne!
    and Marta, the pogo is wonderful! small pix that glue right onto anything, immediately. Great for journals and any art surface. However, to print after it gets warm, it makes some streaks, so all you have to do is lift the lid, insert a printing paper upside down and it poops it out making the print you want next perfect.

  6. hi marta,

    yes, i do love my pogo, and you can do what adrian suggests to keep the prints from streaking, or run the little blue card that comes with each package of film through before you print each pic. that's what i do...

  7. another box.......... gorgeous..... now it looks like this one has book pages as a covering. did you put some sort of finish over it to protect it? eleanor is a classy lil lady and i am really liking the tea bag drawing too.
    oh, one more question about the pogo, if one was going to use printing paper, have you experimented or will any work? thanks Lynne. have an awesome weekend. xo

  9. I love Eleanor. I think Eleanor is sad but hardly notices it. She longs to break out of her shell, come out of hiding but doesn't quite know how. She works in an orthopedic shoe store and spends most of her time dealing with the elderly. She feel most comfortable here but longs for something more carefree.

    Love the Rumi quote too. Such a kind and generous and uplifting quote! How did he get to know all that good stuff and express it in such a straightforward yet inspiring way? How fortunate we are to have his words.
