scis-sor claws (szr klô)
1. An affliction that affects people too stupid to put down their scissors and stop making envelopes [this is where a picture of me would go]. It is characterized by the semi-permanent (or for 4 days, whichever comes first) hardening of the fingers of the scissors-holding hand into a scissors holding position;
2. A condition that occurs when a person actually replaces his/her hand with a pair of scissors and threatens to claw others with it.
Please know that I'm suffering from the former, not the latter. I'm not Laura-olverine quite yet. I may be obsessive, but I'm still adamantium-free. A reasonable, logical person would stop cutting paper immediately. But let no one ever accuse me of being reasonable! And if you did recently: TAKE IT BACK! TAKE IT BACK RIGHT NOW! And you! Give me the scissors!!
Before I dive into the mail, envelope-palooza officially ended yesterday! I'll be announcing the winner early next week. Stay tuned snailmail lovers: same bat channel, random bat time. [Yes, I have both a wolverine and a batman reference in the same blog post. Just go with it.]
Emilie was velociraptor-iffic!!
Postcard swap with Gladys. BLISTERING BARNACLES!!!
I leave you with the best thing I saw this week:
It's from a site called Super Dickery, which is dedicated to using out-of-context panels from Superman comic books to prove that Superman is a dick. I may or may not be using it as arsenal in my argument that Marvel is supreme to DC. Muahahahahaha! The Hulk would never do any of that! He's a good superhero! Either way, I'm more amused than I should be by it.
Man alive! First Wolverine, then Batman, now Superman, and then Hulk for good measure. I need to get a grip! And I'm out! Happy weekend everyone.
Wow every thing looked so old net looking for sure, I am happy you got so much good for you.ReplyDelete
Wow lots of mail...mail box envy :)ReplyDelete
I am hoping to make some envelopes this weekend (winter here with a cold front - so good weather for crafting). Your envie with the stars - what do you use to get the speckled effect. I have a colour wash which has to be used on damp paper so was told was not suitable for envelopes.
Enjoy the weekend.
Hi Alison, I used ink and spray bottles. You can find out more here: http://sketchcuts.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/mail-art/Delete
I hope you also had a good weekend! :)
Thanks Laura for the link. We have to find out most of the stuff on-line as here in South Africa not all the stuff is easily available in the shops.Delete
Heh heh, I've been making envies lately as well ;) Mine aren't quite as stylish as yours though :(ReplyDelete
I'm sure they're beautiful. I can't wait to get one in the mail. Envies, I like that word.Delete
Oh my GOD you sent an envelope with the ENTERPRISE on it!!! (I have classic fold and mail Star Trek stationery!) I think I'm in love. Haha. Huge Trekkie fan here. And super hero fan. Hey I wanted to see pictures of all the envelopes that caused scissor claws! Whatcha making them out of?ReplyDelete
Nothing too glamourous! Just cardstock and an old Seek & Find book that I had lying around. And vellum! I love vellum. I don't have a picture of the Seek & Find envelopes right now, but here's one of the cardstock ones: https://twitter.com/pleasedeliverto/status/219089022822260738/photo/1/largeDelete
You get a gold geek star for recognizing the Enterprise! :)
I like your comic hero references. Marvel is totally better than DC!ReplyDelete
Agreed! Even if Marvel has a "puny god." Hee!Delete
Awesome, awesome mail! So much inspiration! ;)ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week, Laura! ;D
I must say that I am SUPER ENVY of the person who got that Enterprise. *___*ReplyDelete
Ah crap. No sign from my snailmail yet i guess? Waaaah! Hope it arrives soon.Love your mail and yep, when your pile of letters is getting too big, you should have a stop (and spend extra time with your beloved penpals, hahahahahahaha)Have a great weekend and if the mailman doesn't have my letter with him next time, you should search his pockets....ReplyDelete
Oh, I'll shake him upside down until that letter appears....Delete
