Back To Basics

Mail Art OUT
It's all about the mail....


Cutting and pasting and playing with old photo postcards and off they go....

Thank you tins to Linda

Ain't it the truth????
Rule certainly applies around my house -- nothing is safe! And I love to re-purpose.


So, I've been busy. And you?
SEND GOOD MAIL --  GET GOOD MAIL

  1. Incredibly impressive. I love what you have done, especially the postcards and the ATCs. They are so fun. I really MUST alter some rolodex cards one of these days. Perhaps in a couple of months. Yours are always such a joy to see.

    I agree that these tiny pieces of art are really upcycling waiting to happen. Thanks for sharing them with us. I know some people/recipients are very happy about now.

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth -- I found a bunch of dictionaries from India and some countries I'm not even sure I've heard of for FREE and I thought of you.....

  2. Fabulous outgoing mail art! Love the use of old postcards. I've been busy but not with art (unfortunately); my mom and I had a garage sale. But that's all behind us now and I did get some backgrounds started last week at my art journal group. Something good may happen tonight yet! lol

  3. You do, indeed, "keep the postman busy" with your "mail bonding"! Great job on all that mail art! You do embody the belief that "everything is an art supply." It's always such an inspiration and a joy to read your posts. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Haha, I too was thinking "Yes, you keep the mailman busy". I am falling behind on replying my letters again, but I am busy doing other fun things. Sometimes I wish I could split myself in half, double the fun.
