The Old Fire Fighter Has Left the Building

Pasadena Rose Parade

My wonderful, 102 year old father in law, JB, passed away.
He is on the right in the vintage fire truck and he had a blast riding in that thing in the Rose Parade two years ago.
He also absolutely LOVED all the wonderful birthday mail art many of you sent him for his 101st birthday.
And a very special and heartfelt thank you to JU who has been sending him mail for the past three years. He loved it.
Mail Art is a wonderful thing. You gave him a lot of happiness toward the very end of a long life.
Thank you.

I am going to miss those boxes of avocados he used to ship me from his tree. They weren't mail art but it was darn good mail.

Why Send It Plain If You Can Send It Fancy?

I really can't seem to leave well enough alone....I've got to play......
I am loving these colors lately..

I had to mail someone some rolo cards for a swap so I had to make a little folder to send them in...just sticking the rolo cards in an envelope wouldn't be much fun, would it?

A bit of outgoing mail

Stationery from Diaso needs some extra treatment to make it more interesting.

Making some collage cards

Someone brought a bunch of old family photos to our mail art group's swap table last week. I've been having fun putting them in collages.
I wish I had a huge box of of old snapshots to play with.

Rainy Day Play
We've had a lot of rain here in SF lately and I love mono printing on a rainy day.....

I'll print on anything I can get my hands on...tags and gessoed over postcards and...

rolodex cards...I printed a bunch of Rolo cards to have ready to collage on...

Altered Rolodex Card a Day Project
I'm still at it...

Just look at the size of that post box! I love it -- and the two kids on top are icing on the cake.

Hope you are all out there tearing and glueing and pasting and making and having a good mail day.
