A Week of Mail Going Out

Back in business -- the effects of the flu are long gone and I have been hitting the work table every day this week.
Really having fun with the process and getting lots of mail art sent out.
Can you tell?

The piles have been growing -- but all the better to tear, arrange and glue! Right?

An early batch of collaged postcards this week....I'm on a roll....a French roll....whatever that is...

OUTGOING to Mim
(I hope she already got this)
Vellum envelope with some vintage French inside!)
Bisous mon amie.

OUTGOING to Millicent
(Hope she already got this one too) A comic handmade envelope to cheer her up after two no-mail days. No mail -- no fun.


OUTGOING to the Fearless Mailer KSP
I got a bit carried away sticking stamps on that envelope and I may have put extra (ahem) postage..
Oh well...support the USPS, right?

OUTGOING
Some crabby envelopes....

OUTGOING
for my lovely friend SW who likes transit....

OUTGOING
More collaged photo cards going out...

OUTGOING
And the French....OhLaLa.....love that woman in the center. Saucy! 
OUTGOING
Since green is my favorite color, other than black and (more black) I had to make a St Patrick's day card edition....
and Guinness is Good For You....you knew that, right?

OUTGOING
Saint Pat's Edition of collaged/photo postcards...

OUTGOING
Top O the Morning to all of you and have fun on Sunday. Make some green mail.

OUTGOING
Passover collaged card.....for SB....
LOST AND FOUND MAIL
Now here is a story to warm a postal lovers heart. My pal in France sent me two envelopes, mailed on the same day. One came very quickly and the other (this one) seemed to be lost in transit.
It just showed up yesterday and it seems my friend did not put any HOUSE number in the address.
And my street is a very long city street.
But someone at the PO tracked me down and wrote in the house number and viola --
here's the envelope.
Isn't that cool?

I am sorry for all the bad things I said about the Postal Service while the envelope was missing.


Some great incoming mail arrived this week too but that is a story for another day.


Packing the mail art kit and will be sending postcards from the road.

  3. It may be weird, but although I really like what you made, I love the pics with your working space. I can't stop looking at them... I guess I'm jealous. ;)

    1. TomoyoHime -- thanks. I love to have all my paper ephemera out and around me. It's very messy but very inspiring. It seems I cannot work in neatness.

    1. Thank you, Berriquita -- The beautiful mess inspires me and one thing leads to another. But it is hard to pick everything up when I invite people to my studio.

  5. Marvelous messy desk. I love having a pile of collage papers surrounding me too. Never know when that perfect small piece will emerge. xox

    1. Corrine -- that's exactly right. If it is put away in a box somewhere it won't inspire!

  6. I love your collaged postcards. I keep bringing in boring mail day after day, and keep thinking I need to get back into sending some mail art. I miss a happy mailbox! :-)
