fanshefolds from New York. She has access to so many exciting papers that I can only dream of getting here in Saint John. Many of my original ACEO’s are created on her rounded corner acid free ACEO stock.

The mini envelope craft punch makes these sweet envelopes that measure 1.5 x 1 inch (38mm x 22mm). They are tiny!

I created miniature greeting card sets using the punch and various other tools that will remain a mystery to you as I can’t give all my secrets away. đŸ˜‰

Three Psycho Snowmen or How to Identify Which Drug Your Snowman is Taking

The Opiate Addict

The Opiate Addict

He has very tiny pupils. His snow is dirty yet he appears to be happy. He chooses to dress in overly bright decorative scarves that have been out of style for 15 years.

The Amphetamines Addict

The Amphetamines Addict

Notice how happy, bright and shiny this snowman is! Look closely at his dilated pupils and dryed out mouth. He even sports his own hand made wooden pipe.

…and The Alcoholic

The Alcaholic

This snowman is depressed. His snow is dirty, his eyes are dull and his nose has gin blossomed. His clothes are clean but faded and old.

Three Psycho Snowmen

I come from a family of crafters and labourers who have what some may call a peculiar sense of humor. When you are couped up inside month after month during winter you need to do something to bide your time.

After living on Vancouver’s Eastside for four years I couldn’t help but laugh at these snowmen my folks made. All three do resemble mentally impaired folk art style candle holding drug addicts.
