Happy For Pete’s Sake Day! Let’s try to use that expression as much as possible today! I know that I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do, and I’m sorry. Don’t worry, though. Nothing is wrong! I’m just working on some other things. If you miss me too much, it might be a good idea to sign up for a month of e-mails from me! All you’ve gotta do is read. I’ll bring the pixie dust.

And yes, it’s Wednesday! That means that it’s time for the weekly photo contest. Today, I’m asking you to take a picture of something beginning with the letter “P”. (Example: a picture of a piano) Sometime today, take a picture and upload it to social media (FacebookTwitter, and Instagram are all fine). Be sure to tag me in it, so I definitely see it, and #uncustomaryart. At the end of the day, I will pick my favorite, e-mail you for your snail mail address, and you’ll get a little envelope in the mail from me! It’s pretty simple. (And yes, it’s open to non-US people.) Last week’s winner was Linsey.
