The Message in a Bottle Award

My blog post, Turning Junk Mail Into Art has won me my first writing award, although i co-wrote it with artist Rev K (and actually all i did was interview the guy):

Message in a Bottle Award from passionforletters.com

The only other writing award I have received was the NANO WRIMO winner award. Which means I accomplished writing 50,000 words on a novel in one month and was only based on completion and not an evaluation of my actual writing.

Thanks to a Passion for Letter Writing and Wendy for the award.

If I was asked, I would probably dedicate the award to my father. Since he is a mailman and has sent me over 300 articles of mail in my lifetime, no joke. My dad is a letter writing fanatic, and is the master of using goofy stationary, and completely 'unrelated to the situation' themed cards. I cannot tell you how many times I have gotten "Get Well Soon" cards when I've been completely healthy, or "Happy Anniversary Cards", when I've never been married. It is always good for a chuckle.

I love this story about your dad! My dad was a mailman too and my grandmother was crazy-letter-writing lady who would write on food wrappers and all sorts of fun stuff.
