A party -- and You are Invited!

What do you need to have a party?
Well, for sure you need some fabulous, homemade cupcakes (by master baker KC). And you need little postage stamp flags on top of each one!

You need artistamps.....

...and a passport to put them in....

And a swap table always adds to the fun...

We do know how to put on a good swap....



Cancelled stamps floating around are always good too.

You need wine.


And, of course you need some bites to eat.....you can't live on cupcakes and wine alone.

You need party guests...preferably ones (like these two) who are creative and friendly and fun.


A typing station is always good too. (Thanks to Monica for bring two of these beauties).

Just making sure you saw those ZIP Code stamps on those yummy cupcakes.

You need a raffle and a lovely pal who wins the raffle and gives the box of rubber stamps she won to you -- thank you so much, Angelique.

Happy Birthday to the SF Correspondence Co-Op!
Started by the wonderful and talented Red Letter Day herself --
Jennie Hinchcliff -- we have had four years of fun and art and events and swaps and trades and zines and mail and artistamps...
Now going strong into our fifth year as a group, we are still having a little too much fun.

You can come to the party -- if you are in San Francisco you can come to one of our meetings. 
Or, you can start up a group of your own.
Trust me, it will be worth it.
I found my tribe.

    1. I love those passports too, Pie Poster. I was thinking of making one and taking it around to all my art field trips and artist get-togethers and finding something to add to it each time......the Co-Op passports are just for the o-op artistamps...maybe you better go buy a cupcake.

    1. The swap table? No rules! You just bring whatever you are tired of or have too much of and take whatever strikes your fancy. Everybody is happy! I have scored some great rubber stamps from it.....

    3. It sure is, Andria. We all have so much stuff that we kind of re-cycle amongst ourselves.
