Some lovely incoming mail with Valentine themes and Typewriter themes.....
|Fabulous Valentine mail from Dori Singh, mail artist and pal extraordinaire!|
|Bet you didn't know there is another mail artist in my family -- my sweetie! He hand lettered this envelope and made the heart out of torn chopstick wrappers -- what a guy!|
|From Tough City Writer I got a fabulous tri-old card with tattooed and half dressed guys inside!|
|More Valentines.......love that bikini gal on the card from Garci and the heart made of cancelled stamps she tucked inside.|
Maybe next year I should make some Valentine cards....since everyone was so creative in the ones they made for me.
|Here's the back of the envelope -- i would sure like to know how she did it -- it seems like she gessoed paper ??? Liz -- feel free to leave a comment and tell all.|
Book Art Studios
to see some of Liz's work. And if you happen to live in New Zealand you can go see the art exhibit Project 49.
She is on Facebook too --
VERY cool -- many thanks, Liz and I will be putting something in the mail to you very soon.
|A creative Valentine mailing from Niko who does bad things in the name of art --|
see for yourself
He started the PDX Mail Art Group too, just so you know. He set three different sheets of artistamps he made.....
|I buy those cheapo sets of ABC stamps at Michaels and store them in a box. They aren't the greatest stamps. The rubber falls off sometimes. But hey -- they are cheap and fun to mix and match and sometimes sort......|
|I finished up some little RAM booklets and a NYC book....just puttering at the work table...|
|I made four....and one for me too....|
|I love the way the look all stacked up and filled with little surprises. They are six pockets in each one that you can fill....|
|Put a Bird on it!|
OK, kids, that's it for now. We are having crazy warm weather in SF right now. It feels like summer and I am not liking it at all.
So I have to go in my studio and make stuff to cheer up.
I know...I know...those of you in the snow (Hello Boston) probably think I'm crazy but I just don't like 75 degrees in February. I don't like snow either.
But I do like mail art!
Many thanks to all of you who have sent me great mail lately. If you don't see yours here you might see it on the blog's FaceBook page.
I enjoy and appreciate every piece of mail I get.
And if you want to see Cappuccino & Art on FB look HERE
Hope you all are having a good day and making some good mail.
No Mail Monday = No Fun
But at least it gives me a chance to catch up. What are you all making? Sending? Doing?
