Please! Who wouldn't mess themselves a little when they receive a box chock full of amazingness all wrapped up in a package with two open-shirt, bare-chested, shaggy-haired, high-waisted pants hunks like these two:

There are all sorts of amazing things in here. Another gorgeous bear print, a bunch of stickers, a really cool stamp and a couple of inside joke items to make me chuckle -- the ant and fruit loop cut out. The best of this picture is the owl button. It's so lovely and I've been trying to figure out which jacket to pin it on so it'll receive the most exposure.

I feel so fortunate to be exchanging mail art with Jessica. You can tell she has a genuine passion for mail art and it's pushing me to REALLY bring my A-game on the next letter to her.
