This is our studio site. Among lots of other things, we run Field Notes Brand,
go there right now and spend lots of money. Thanks.

An Item From the CP Shop

Bird Paintings

SM0069 ID SM0069 (left) and SM0070 (right) (photo)
Arrived 4.02.07 (USPS)
From Andrew Miller, Columbus; Katey Barrett, Atlanta
Description Mixed-media bird paintings, approx 6" X 6"
More info Elephants on Bicycles (Andrew); email Katey Swapped for each other
Status in the mail to Swappers.

Spring is here, and love is in the air. Straight out of Nora Ephron's playbook, two Swappers sent us 6"x6" bird paintings on the same day, they were even unpacked back-to-back. We're sending Andrew's "Mr. Fancy Pants" to Katey, and Katey's "Swallow" to Andrew. That was easy. Sadly, we know Andrew, and he's happily married, and for all we know, Katey is too, so they'll have to keep it platonic. Maybe they should keep the momentum going and start a 6"-square bird painting swap site.
