|So, you ask, what do you need for a mail art party? Well.....we've had a few....mail art parties, that is...|
First, you need a bunch of mail artists.
And then, you always need food, of course.....
And this group does like to eat.
|This being in San Francisco, good food isn't too hard to find.|
(and, neither are mail artists)
And you definitely need some wine.
|Once you've got the food and the wine you are are halfway there...now you need some mail artists to roll in...and crank up the music.|
|Cookies are always good too. Homemade are the best and we have an expert cookie baker in our group (kudos to KC).|
Candy is good too.
|Candy canes mixed in with some paper art...|
|You know you'd buy one....or two...some people -- and I'm not mentioning any names -- bought five or six....|
|I HAD to buy this one.....stamps on a clothesline....how could I possibly resist?|
|Mail Art Supplies|
Mail art supplies are always good too. You never know when the urge to create will strike.
|A lot of times our mail art group will make cards for a special reason..this time we made cards for kids who won't be with family for the holidays...|
|An art project is usually happening too....had to cut down some giant collages into postcards for mailing.|
Yes, Molly wants food. And look at those eyes -- one blue and one brown. Every party should have a sweet dog in the mix.

TOO MUCH FUN
T is for TOO much fun -- and check out
Bleubeard & Elizabeth
for a little coffee and old-fashioned dishes.
Hum......I wonder how Bleubeard and Molly would like each other?
So, if you are making New Year Resolutions yet -- or even thinking about making them -- I suggest you get yourself an ART Group if you don't already have one.
Our group has so much fun all year - at our monthly meetings, on outings and we get together individually too...we make mail art, collage, give demos on techniques, have parties....
I'm feeling pretty good...baked my cookies and brought all my boxes to the Post Office today....now I think I can get back to making ART.
Sounds like a plan.
