This is a 3-D postcard, which doesn't really translate to digital format, but I dig the way you can kind of see what is going on there.

Valentine's Day! This was sent to the fabulous Katja 7, whose nuptials are right around the corner. I keep trying to goad her into some Bridezilla moments for my entertainment and she just won't do it. She's so hands off about this wedding I'm a little worried she'll forget to come. This attitude toward the bridal industrial complex speaks to our long lasting friendship, but I'm still hoping for a tiny meltdown somewhere along the way. Because I'm evillle.

I did pretty well with the balance of inspiration and discipline this year - I really prefer to get as close to that spur of the moment feeling even though some days it feels more like a chore than art. Kinda like creating art - the ideal is to always have great inspiration at just the right time and be able to capture it and send it out into the world. Hint: that often doesn't happen in art, either, but you still have to keep doing it. Keep dancing. Keep choreographing. Write yourself out of the slump. It's not only the central premise of LetterMo, but of NaNoWriMo, and as an artistic technique, it does work.
But I still feel bad on those days when I am less than fully engaged with my postcards during LetterMo. This is another postcard I got at the HIDE/SEEK exhibit a few years ago, but I found myself wondering why I had been drawn to it, and my postcard scribbling was more superficial than usual (sorry! it's not you it's me). Of course, when Tilly saw this image, she fell in love with it.

It was a little mean to send a snowy image to someone in Chicago during this winter, though.
