O My Goodness!

I don’t remember exactly how I became a member of an Indie Artist Group but I was thrilled beyond explanation when the following event took place.

Thank you to Charli Mills for the opportunity to relive a special memory with her prompt this week of Film Festivals. Check out all the terrific challenges and interviews at The Carrot Ranch anytime!

Shannon started the Indie Artist Group for opportunities to get amazing, unique works of art into the hands of those who might never see them otherwise.

The entire group was excited, their art was going to be part of swag bags handed out at The Sundance Film Festival that year! Some made jewelry, others painted pictures and some designed cards.

Shannon hosted their table in the celebrity lounge with a broad smile and hearty handshake. She was cool and calm greeting celebrities but nothing prepared her to meet the person who asked for an extra bag for Oprah Winfrey!

Oh, and here is what I put into the bags. Cards made from a picture I drew of an Angel and each of the 4 different colored cards had a different message on the back!

Dead Letters

I had to think about this week’s Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction topic for a moment, Then I heard about a postal worker who was busted for not delivering the mail. Check out the fun with Charli Mills each week! https://carrotranch.com

Ted nonchalantly punched in the access code and waited patiently for the arm to rise. The maze of storage units could be confusing but not to Ted, as he had been coming here nearly once a day for several months.

Without a care in the world, he began tossing the white plastic bins in left and right. Laughing, Ted thought about how much he hated everything about being a postal worker. The weather, the barking dogs, and he especially hated the mail! He hated it so much that he hadn’t delivered any in months, except to this storage unit.
