|Things have been busy around here -- yesterday was our monthly mail art meeting of the|
San Francisco Correspondence Co-Op.
And we had a job to do.....
|We agreed to work on Tofu's Hide Art in a Book Project|
and make small piece of art to send out into the world asking people to hide the art inside a book.
That's Tofu on the left-hand side in front. He comes up with the best ideas.
|We all brought ideas and supplies and ephemera and got down to work.|
|No food or drink in this library conference room -- made it a little easier to concentrate -- but maybe not quite as much fun. We all like our snacks and treats.|
|A lovely surprise when Dori dropped in. She is visiting from Southern California and has been trading mail with GinaVisione in our group and commenting on my mail art FaceBook page so it was really fun to meet her.|
And I brought Millicent's fabulous hand sewn book ( a birthday present for me!) which Dori is holding -- and as it turn out, Dori and Millicent also trade mail art.
Karen's Mail Me Art blog
is also something many of us have in common.
|This wonderful work was made by Dori -- who just dropped in to the meeting with no idea of the project we were working on. I think she certainly caught on very quickly,|
|Artistamps by Maureen and cool passport cover too.....|
|Maureen was busy pasting the stamps into our passports and signing and dating them.|
This month's stamp was a beauty! Thanks, Maureen.
|My supplies -- My idea for hiding art in book was to use some old library catalog cards and some of the "Due Date" stamps in collages....you know...book art....(thanks for the supplies Kelly P and Jennifer U).|
|Sally W is one of my favorite artists and she brought one very large sheet of joss paper and worked on it....|
This Just In -- Update on Tofu's Blog
|Besides the Co-Op meeting, there was also the SF Library Big Book sale and oops I did it again and bought more flash cards to play with as well as some books to (gasp) tear up for collage.|
I can't help myself.
