|First mail art meet-up of the new year and a brand new artistamp in my passport!|
|Nothing beats a nice Sunday afternoon hanging out with the mail art crowd -- doing some cutting & pasting, some (ok, a lot) socializing and seeing some fabulous show & tell.|
|The fabulous Miss Red Letter Day created the atristamp and was very dedicated in sticking them in all our passports.|
I'm sure you all know about her blog but just in case someone out there reading this hasn't seen it, be sure to click that link. She is the best! She posts when her upcoming classes are
and the SF Correspondence dates -- I'm just sayin' -- in case you are going to make a trip to SF -- you are welcome to join in the mail art fun.
|We like to bring some Show and Tell to each meeting for eye candy and inspiration -- Tofu brought this fabulous piece made by Tough City Writer Adrienne Mason.|
The fabulous book of collages was passed around the room and appreciated by all.
The photo doesn't do it justice. An accordion book with collages on each page -- beautiful!
|Another incredible piece of work by JW of San Francisco -- an entire book of hand-stamped pages -- was a gift for one of our co-op members, SW.|
Now THAT is what I'd call a birthday gift. Really wonderful.
|GinaVisione brought her pen case and let us test out her very fun (cheap) fountain pen collection.|
Of course I found one I want. She also told us about the website
where she buys them. Check it out -- a great resource for cheap fountains.
|Of course, I brought my supplies -- address book, datebook, etc -- it is hard for me to sit still without doing anything.....|
|And in December (doesn't that seem like a long time ago?) the SF Correspondence Co-Op had our Holiday Party -- a good time was had by all.|
|We all brought a few pieces of mail art received and hung them up for a pop-up mail art show.|
|And of course, we made things. This year we made holiday cards for kids. We are going to make valentines too....|
