|The number of submissions for last month's potpourri exploded!|
"So you want to sort them this month?"
"Sure!" she said.
I pulled out the pile of envelopes with LTCs, stacked them up, and dropped them with a thud on the table. "Here you go!"
Her eyes popped out. "Good grief! What happened?"
"My blog happened, that's what."
She shook her head in stunned amazement at the pile. "That's it!" she told me. "I forbid you post about LTCs again."
I nodded agreeably, but of course, I knew I would post again if for no other reason than to share this story with you. =)
So this last month, I let Amanda do most of work with Majorie's Potpourri. I did set six random envelopes aside in case any last minute arrives showed up on the first or second of the month--so I'd still have enough to swap if no extra arrived--but all of the rest fell to Amanda's capable hands
And without further ado, here are a few things we found in the last potpourri....
|How adorable is this..... |
Angry Birds: Cracked Helmet Pig by GypsyLadybug
|This LTC appears to have been specially made for|
this month's potpourri--the back even labels it
as Marjorie's Potpourri (Feburary 2012)
Flower of the month: February Violets by El
|Good Dragon, Bad Dragon by Kurious Jo|
|Seems there's a ring with googley eyes, because this card|
wasn't the only googley eyed card in this month's potpourri.
Even the little bee has tiny googley eyes! (I have to confess,
however, that effect doesn't look as neat in a photo. It works
better when you can see the googley eyes moving around.)

|This was the most elaborate envelope in the potpourri.|
Created by MN Compass, she even listed it as an 'other'
box on Atlas Quest: Viking sent to WA.
Interestingly, the post office added their own stamp
to the mix that read:
"Postage Verified Seattle WA 98168"
Thanks for including the correct postage! Looks like our Seattle
postal workers are putting their feet down! (Several potpourri
envelopes had this postage verified message.)
