|I bet you've got presents to send.....|
Do you know some of the best ways to mail them? (via USPS)
|Of course, thanks to ScrapSF (and JU) I was fully prepared with with lots of cool old 3x5 cards with tabs and index cards.|
I've already typed them up for this year's Xmas offerings....now if only I could remember what I gave my friends last year...
|At the same shop I also found vintage tags and an unused packet of Dennison Xmas stickers for $2.50. My husband couldn't understand my excitement.... For someone who doesn't even like Xmas I was still happy -- I love vintage.|
|Redlands Postal Museum|
My pal Monica alerted me to the Redlands Postal Museum on her blog a while back so I stopped in. It's tiny but fun to visit.
|Don't you think Santa should have these USPS mail sacks to deliver presents?|
|I thought this was a riot!|
|Check out that fabulous ironwork -- do you see what it says at the bottom? So cool. I wish I'd be standing in line at that post office to mail all my Xmas boxes and envelopes.|
I could gaze at that USPO for a while.
|Coming home from a quick LA trip I got three days of mail on Sunday night. Yes! After a BAD mail week (three days with nothing at all) this was a happy night.|
|How many of you know about the wonderful Priority Mail Flat Rate Padded envelopes?|
I am using LOTS of them this holiday season -- and I use them all year to mail surprises to my mail art pals. They can also be as heavy as you want and I can stuff A LOT inside.
You have to order them -- FREE -- at the USPS website right
They ship them in packs of ten -- trust me, you will use them. $6.45 to mail off with $50.00 insurance and tracking.
My secret mailing weapon.
LA was fun but am very happy to be back in SF and settle in with my long TO DO list.
I want to get all the wrapping and mailing out of the way so I can make art and bake cookies.
Sadly, a lot of us here in the Bay Area, especially in the art community, are feeling very sad about the horrible tragedy in the artist space the Ghost Ship in Oakland.
It seems to be hanging over our whole community and there is much sadness for the lives lost and the remaining friends and families who are suffering.
A moment of silence for all that was lost on December 2.
Take care, friends.
