Last week I received another package in the mail from Lisl and I would like to share with you all what she sent me. Most of these items-if not all-are thrifted. I think her state has better donated items to use for mixed media projects than my state does! I am so thankful and over- whelmed with gratitude. A big thank you and virtual hug to Lisl. I can’t wait to see what mixed media projects I create using these cherished items. The book, “Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books,” is to read and I started it already and really enjoying the story thus far.
Even though Lisl thrifted these items well before the virus outbreak in the states, when the package came, I left it outside-hidden-in the direct sun for a couple of hours. Then I sprayed the outer box before opening it up to take the contents out. I put them in a bag and brought it on the house. Doing all this I wore gloves. Then I took pictures of the items and put them back in the bag and didn’t get them out for a couple days. After putting everything back in the bag, I sprayed the area of the floor I used to display the items. During these times we are asked to take theses precautions during the quarantined.
I pray that everyone is being safe. My heart and prayers go out to the people we have lost and to the families of the victims of this awful virus. -Stephanie Hopkins
