Hi Tammy,
This is Anne in Australia and I received your postcard in the mail today. Thank you for being a part of the postcard swap, and for the time you spent to make a lovely and vibrant postcard for me. :)

Your blog certainly looks very colourful and I'll have a bit more of a look around soon.

Thanks once again,

Are you sure? I'm sure I need some kind of permission slip!

I've been a bit ill, and didn't do anything creative for a long time, but I did a No Frills Prompt recently. It called to me :-) I must upload it soon.

And Daisy Yellow e-zine? Have I missed something?

thank GOODNESS we don't need a 6 Sigma (I don't know where to get that character on my keyboard, lol!) certification to do art journaling; I'd be sunk!! ...I keep having to remind myself about no need for a plan or an art degree, and sometimes I still feel the need for "someone's" approval--- so this is a good reminder!! thanks!! (I do think the train ticket would be nice to use on a page, though! :D )

Love your list! Thank goodness I don't need a rule book, plan, or art degree, or I'd be sunk!

Wonderful post... :]
Great list!
I think I would have "stickers" on the "want" list.

Well, some of those things could be used as collage fodder but they certainly aren't needed!
Great post!

A great reminder. Often times the simplest supplies bring the most satisfaction.
Thank you for the reminder.

I'm a bit worried that I have some of those things . . . including a permission slip signed by me! I think all that's needed are paper (any), a pen (any) and perhaps kids coloured pencils or felt pens.

I have always had a problem with rules. :)

Volcano insurance??!! Love it! LOL
