I am off to Chicago for an extra-long weekend to enjoy the sights and sounds of the great city in all its full midsummer glory. Watch for special reports on my adventures.

I love love love the Animal Mask Note Cards I found from the fine folks at Fredericks and Mae. These cards are great – you get to send someone a card that is also a functional treat they can enjoy instead up just standing it up on the mantle for a few days. I am thinking about getting these to save for my Halloween cards this year.

About the Animal Mask Note Cards from Fredericks and Mae: “These notecards transform into animal masks: Zebra, Polar Bear, Baboon, Koi Fish, Panther and Bird of Paradise.  12 Notecards and Envelopes – 6 animals 2 of each. A mask is an object normally worn on the face, typically for protection, disguise, performance or entertainment for both ceremonial and practical purposes.  The oldest masks that have been discovered are 9,000 years old, but the earliest known anthropomorphic artwork is circa 30,000–40,000 years old.  They are usually worn on the face, although they may also be positioned for effect elsewhere on the wearer’s body, so in parts of Australia giant totem masks cover the body, whilst Inuit women use finger masks during storytelling and dancing.”
