Weeeeeee!


They make me smile and always seem to arrive in the mail on days when I need them most.

Here's the latest batch of love sent to my P.O. Box by fellow bloggers!

Hooray!

The list includes:

-A magnet
-Postcards
-Greeting cards
-Poetry
-Photographs
-A handwritten letter
-And even a knitted rabbit!

I'm honored and humbled that people would take time out of their busy lives to send and create things for me.

I wish I could make something absolutely brilliant for each and every person in return but with working two jobs that's just not possible. But I WILL get to as many as I can.

So cute, Brody!!

If you'd like to join in on the excitement my address is as follows:

Dean Grey
P.O. Box 804602

Thank you, everybody!

Your thoughtfulness doesn't go unnoticed!

That bunny is honestly the cutest thing I've ever seen. I think it must be a "Super Bunny?" Has he brought you any super powers??

Lars Käker said...

I saw your self portraits at "Artists Paint Themselves". They are really sophisticated! I follow you.

I feel like that guy who just showed up to a birthday part without a gift.

Hey Dean!!

I haven't blogged for a while, I always thought of you when I didn't-i've had many ups and downs over the last couple of months and what seemed like an endless tunnel, well it seems I have got out of it at last.

This of course is not to say that those tunnels will never reappear. Though, throughout the bleak I thought of you and in a way you were the light at the end of the tunnel as well. We all have to join, create, express and explore together in order to find our own individual purposes and self order.

Depression is a scatty thing.

I recently went to an art exhibition of the artist Tracey Emin. I have blogged about her too, feel free to take a look!

In my anxiety I have come to realise that amongst humans, the unknown is always feared the most. It is fear which controls us and which holds us back from clearing our minds. This is what encourages us to feel no desire to leave the house, we want to wrap ourselves up and never show our faces.

When I clicked onto your blog today and I saw you had changed your picture, I spoke out loud to myself and said 'oh wow he's changed it, such a lovely picture!'. A great smile, blue background and a sense of together in your eyes. I hope this reflects more in your life too Dean, even if it comes down to a small thing like a customer thanking you at the art and crafts store for your hard work. Reward yourself with cake or whatever you fancy! Everything is one step at a time. Lets not be too hard on ourselves aye?! Pieces come together eventually, always believe-I know you do otherwise you wouldn't write with hope either, as much as you sound sad, I know you still have hope.

The colours in your art are beautiful, I really like your butterflies! :)

All the best,

Flounce (hollie) x

Randy!

Why thank you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Writer!

I'm sure it will, sir!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Aleksandra!

I'm glad about it too!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mind Of Mine!

You can change that, Ian, by simply sending me something.

*winks*

Yes it is!

Flounce!

Your thoughtful comment is very much appreciated, Hollie!

Hang in there, girl!

Thanks to everyone for stopping by!
