here is a letter i sent my long time pen-pal for his birthday....letters don't always have to be words.
a bird skull
acorns i found in santa cruz
a piece of burlap that inspired me to make my last collection
a bottle of home made psychic dream oil that is made of : rose, mugwort and vanilla oils
a sticker from yaelfran on etsy. i love her drawings
a raccoon bone bead
a turquoise bead
a shell from California
a pin of a bee
my absolute favorite thing is sending letters. Christopher is the best pen pal i have ever had. we have been writing each other for i guess 9 or 10 years now. i have boxes of our letters. it is really hilarious to look back at letters from the beginning talking about silly middle school problems or to see the incredible art we created back then. i was so much more angsty back then, my art was better too lol.

so i have been vigorously planning our wedding on a very tiny budget with much success! we have $500 dollars ( not in hand mind you we are still saving but hope to have this much haha!) to throw the wedding and we are doing great so far! we booked the location at voodoo donuts for $200. we gave them the $50 deposit and will pay the rest later. voodoo donuts also offered to make out cake tower out of donuts of course! my sister so very generously offered to make the invitations. she is amazingly crafty! i found a few photographers on craigslist who are interested in working for free, i just have to narrow it down. now all we have left is the wedding certificate of course, my dress ( I'm saving my tips for a frocky jack morgan dress!), Bryan's tux ( he could care less what it looks like lol) , the decorations, a band, a tattoo artist (who we will visit after the ceremony for our ring tattoos) and last but not least i REALLY REALLY REALLY want to have a fliptography booth at our wedding ( http://fliptography.net/flipto/flipto.html) but it costs $300 big ones! if anyone is interested in donating decorations, tattoos, a frocky jack Morgan dress, a tux or a fliptogrpahy book i will not protest! well, wish is luck! i think it will be awesome and i am so very excited!
