good evening, spring time.

Today I got wonderful mail: a package of The Beautiful Untrue CDs, postcards, and posters from Jerry Fish! I'm so excited about how Tattooed Lady looks on it all, especially the disc, probably because I hadn't even though about what that might look like. Jerry is so nice, as I know I've said before. There's a new interview with him which you can read here.
Spotty has taken a liking to the envelope all the CDs came in. He's developing a collection of things he likes, though his Manpurse, as we like to call it, is still is favorite (the vinyl flowered thing at right). 
Tonight really felt like cool, spring evening air. Night time spring air always brings me right back to Cambridge and college. I have so many wonderful spring-evening memories from all four years, of long walks and ice cream and stars and sprinklers and lilac bushes and treetops and staying up late, playgrounds and 5 am mornings, wearing dresses and tea and rooftop restaurants.
I hope you're all enjoying your own beautiful spring weekends!
Love,
Amanda

The CD looks wonderful with your design. I bet it was a thrill to open that package up. Spotty is too cute all snuggled up with his goodies.
