The mail art joy continued throughout the week with a birthday packet or two and more postcards. You guys are the BEST!
Four great 'trashpo' cards (made entirely from recycled stuff that would otherwise be in the trash) from the MMSA swap (you get one in return for each one you send).
The top one is from Sherry H. who lives in AK and her card is filled with AK info; the lower starry card is from Nydia in CT. She recycled a dental p/c and added stars everywhere, even on the back.
The top card is from Connie T. in NY and is all about snack food wrappers - what an excellent idea! The bottom card is from the always creative Corrine at Dosfishes. Where did she find that cow stamp?
Above, a beautiful piece of digital art on a card from Michelle at Brain Angles - if you haven't seen her work yet, it's worth a visit to her blog. She combines digital effects with mixed media pieces for some stunning pieces.
These two cards are of each sender's personal art on a glossy printed card! Sherry's intricate zentangled piece has so much movement and the little bits of color really add a lot. Lorinda's (Everyday Endeavors) postcard features a close up of one of her mixed media pieces (just look at all those layers). I love them both! Thanks ladies.
Defining Me (though she's taking a break this summer). The lower card is from Barbara D in NC and she wants to join the mail art fun - something will be going her way soon!
Craftymoose! The handmade envelope actually goes with Gina's card below (got 'em mixed up).
Tracey Fletcher King - it arrived in a packed filled with lovely goodies that I just love. The bottom card is from Gina V. - check out her flickr account. Gina has an ongoing call for mail art that you can read about here.
I am Rushmore sent me a delightful packet of goodies including this postcard and just amazing bookmark. I am gathering an embarrassing wealth of gorgeous handmade bookmarks. Never fear, they are used with great pleasure!
April Cole Studio draws the most amazing faces and her little 8 page zine is filled with bits of them. I'm so inspired, I want to try it too. I'll add it to the list! Thanks so much April - I just love it!
Last, but not least, cards received just today - from Corrine and from an IUOMA member in OR.
Thanks to every one of you for making my last couple of weeks so filled with yummy art even when I haven't been able to make any myself. You all inspire me. Now, I'll be getting my creative hat on and making some return mail! I tried to give links to everyone that I could....hopefully I didn't forget anyone.
Outgoing - just a small mailing for now to make sure Karen gets it in time for the swap:
