|There's always show-and-tell. SallyW brought that book in the lower right corner and it was really interesting. Maybe your library has it?|
|Our "theme" this meeting was sketchbooks of whatever interests/inspires you. And we saw some real beauties.|
|These are Gregg's and you can check out his blog|
The Junk Thief
|Wonderful old stamp album turned into a book filled with collages by Scooter.|
|Two of mine.....that vintage telephone book is filled with collages....and, inspired by seeing all those other books I just started a new one....|
|Of course we had an artistamp for our passports! (And we had three new members of the co-op checking in and buying passports and adding stamps).|
|And another artistamp by James Cline, Burning Man Postmaster and -- I just found out -- retired USPS letter carrier. How did I not know that?|
|Passports and artistamps...|
(Can you see the little bumps on the artistamps? That is Braille!)
|And what have we here?|
|One of our new members brought in a book she made using a Priority Mail Envelope she received.|
Isn't that a great book?
I know you'all are going to be asking me -- YES there is a tutorial and you can find it
|And, I highly suggest you check out her wonderful blog with LOTS of tutorials and books she's made|
The Mellow Miller
And I'd appreciate it if you leave a comment, tell her I sent you over.
|I can't just sit there -- I made a little collage postcard...|
|And, I brought some of the wonderful incoming mail I've received for show-and-tell.....|
|This little party-goer was so excited she had to take a little rest on her typewriter........|
And here is a link to my pal Ryan's Flickr photos of the same mail art meeting -

Remember my fabulous Rolodex Art Cards? Well, now you can have some too, Mail Me Some Art is hosting
ROLODEX ART CARD SWAP
It looks like a good one to me -- I'm doing it!
And, I added Mail Me Some Art on my blog roll -- there are a number of interesting swaps happening right now.
If you're looking for more folks to trade mail art with, this is a good way to go.
I added various things to the blog -- there is a brand new "contact me" form -- I still love comments but if you can't comment, try contacting me.
And I added two new blogs on the sidebar - Mellow Miller and MMSA.
Also a link to my INSTAGRAM photos. (click the Instagram logo after you click a photo to see them on IG)
So, I hope you all enjoy the changes. Say hello.
So, it is another Friday here....no mail art events planned this weekend but lots of fun is coming right up -- The Zine Fest, The Library Book Sale, The Vintage Paper Fair....
I might need to rest up and get ready for all the upcoming fun...
