A Sidewalk Sale at MissouriBendStudio

Hi...thought I'd surprise everyone, including myself, with having a virtual sidewalk sale for my etsy shop!  Time for some spring cleaning and sending the work to good homes...so, check out the 24 hour sale here (noon CST Sunday April 17th to noon CST Monday April 18th) and use the coupon code (hope this works, I've never done it before!) NOON2NOON at checkout!  Just posted the latest found text poem there this afternoon...have a peek right here:

the text reads:
this, this
more or less,
was what it was from the beginning.
still partial and incomplete,
rich in hope
a wax existence
a pale 
even slightly expression
it was said,
one can see
the passionate quivering
of the almost painful

I'll see you tomorrow right here, unless I meet up with you over at my shop, where you can pretend the sun is shining, the air is warm with a very gentle breeze and you can browse to your heart's content...sipping your favorite beverage!  Look forward to seeing you...cheers!


  1. Yeah.
    basically I totally love the altered book poem page.

  2. Thanks Amy...glad you like the poem page. Do you know that I have another blog, MissouriBendPaperWorks, where I post a new found text piece once a week...you can find it here:



I'm happy to hear from you...comments and questions are welcome!
