The Irony of Life

Yesterday I wrote about the irony of the sketchbook I was waiting to receive getting lost in the mail. It turns out it wasn't exactly lost--just delayed due to an incorrect zip code. Today it arrived and the sketchbook I randomly received in the swap was Cathy's sketchbook! She's the one who told me about the project and inspired me to join in the first place. How ironic is that? I couldn't BEE happier to get this wonderful little book filled with bee sketches and quotes.

This is the sketchbook cover which has been coated in beeswax giving it a wonderful patina. The yarn is attached to a tag which is tucked into the pocket at the back of the book.


I love Cathy's handwriting, her sketches, and her affection for bees. Check out her blog for more bee characters.

So the person who delivered an ode to mail ends up with a sketchbook delayed in the mail. What are the chances? There must be an Australian saying for that!

Yes, I believe it's called postal assie delay.
