Snail Mail Game Show | Round 16

Snail Mail Game Show | Uncustomary

So glad the Snail Mail Game Show is BACK after a way too long hiatus, and I’m thrilled to able to share the results! For Round 16, the participants received a piece of paper with the outline of a general oval symbolizing a “place” and a blank welcome sign with the prompt, “Close your eyes. You’re in your happy place. Open your eyes. Your happy place is on this page! Show me what your happy place looks like, and if your like, use the welcome sign to label what it is/who is welcome.”

As always, the prompted paper is just a guideline, and participants are welcomed and encouraged to color outside the lines, and this round sure has a lot of that! I’m so proud!

I don’t know that I can argue with a happy place being full of furry cuddly cats!

Elizabeth imagined what it would be like to have their own designated studio space which would include many of the things labeled in the picture you see! I’m all for large windows, plants, reading chairs, and a big ol’ workbench! Sounds so lovely!

Sandy’s intention was to make clouds out of yarn and knitted things showering snow and winter awesomeness on her and all of the “good doggos” she should find! What a warm welcome to the next season!
