Ok, back to mail art.....
Now that we've caught up with collage class, here is a little mail art eye candy for you...
|I should have taken a better shot of that outgoing up top of this photo -- it was a riot -- manly man grilling a steak while the little woman watches and admires...|
ah yes, the 50's.....
Put a bird (or two) on it --
inter-office envelope/bird outgoing to Palm Springs...
This pal loves to ride horses.....
To another horse-loving friend....
I am loving these clear sleeves. So much fun to find cool images to show through the sleeves.
My fingers are crossed they are arriving. I thought the Julia Child stamp was a nice touch on this one, if I say so myself....
|Tofu likes those tickets.....and I found a (picture of) a whole bowl of them for him...|
Green mail. I may mostly wear black but I do love green.....chartreuse to be exact!
Maybe I was inspired by St. Patrick's Day?
Some spring-like mail for my Aries buddy Miss Millicent......
Whoa, Nellie! You've been busy. That's enough eye candy to scare a diabetic off sweets. LOL.ReplyDelete
My mail to Millicent was returned. So I stopped writing. Oh well. I'm pleased to see that she is well.
The USPS should give you a medal or at least a Pamela stamp.
Oh Limner -- you do have a way with words ! A Pamela stamp.....now, that would be nice...but what I'd really like is a lot more mail....Delete
Miss Millicent had her mailbox broken in to and knocked over so she had to get a PO Box.....
Life is tough sometimes....
Fantastic set of envelopes. They make a beautiful and unique group, yet still look like you made them. Great stuff.ReplyDelete
thank you, FinnBadger......very nice of you to say....Delete
Oh no, not an empty mailbox! Birthday mail will be on the way!ReplyDelete
cjsrq -- something to look forward to -- thank you! If I don't get any mail today I don't know what I will do....Delete
Well that doesn't seem fair! I see my envelope up at the top - and I shall reply, of course! Hopefully USPS is saving up all your good mail and you'll get a pile at once! All your envelopes have me drooling! Where do you find plastic sleeves?ReplyDelete
Michele C. -- it isn't fair! I buy the sleeves at the Japanese Dollar store here in SF -- which I know doesn't help you -- but I think you can get them in office supply stores too. They are just those clear sheet protectors and they come in various sizes. I got the idea from another mail artist though -- the Suburban PenPal.....Delete
Mail art eye candy indeed!ReplyDelete
Maybe there's a sub mail carrier on your route right now? I know that when our regular carrier is off, our delivery gets a little wonky. Hopefully things get back on track for you soon!
Cindy -- actually there has been a different carrier but I can't believe he wouldn't deliver my mail for three days...would he? I hope things get back on track soon too.Delete
Love the transparent sleeves, and opaque envelopes too. It looks dashing. I'm quite insecure using them though, because stamps fell off of them one day on my way to the PO. I'm never sure if stamps and sticker stay on with smooth surfaces?ReplyDelete
May your next week be insanely inundated with mail :-))) you deserve it.
Marie w -- our stamps won't fall off -- they are really gummed well and we don't lick 'em. That also means we cannot get them OFF the paper by soaking in water like we could in the old days....so that isn't good. I hope I am insanely inundated with mail too. I do deserve it, don't I?Delete
An empty mailbox, how could that be? We will all have to buck up and overflow that thing! xoxReplyDelete
Yeah! Good thinking, Corrine! xoDelete
Pamela, wow what an impressive show...plus there are letters inside each of those fantastic envelopes. The draft horses. Swoon. We recently saw 8 Bud Clydesdales get hitched to their wagon. Jaw-dropping. How do you use a sheet protector with those 3 holes in it as an envelope?ReplyDelete
You do such great work. I love your blog. Happy Birthday in advance! My sister's birthday is the 28th, so I know Aries!
Texas Leigh -- these don't have any holes -- I guess they are document sleeves...I don't know -- all the writing is in Japanese. But if there were holes you can just cut it down with a mat knife and tape up the sides -- or leave the holes and run washi tape over the? Glad you enjoy the blog -- and thanks for the comment.Delete
Tons of fun stuff, as usual. Please add me to the I-love-horses list in your head. I need to get back on the mail art band wagon, been lazy lately.ReplyDelete
Leslie -- you were already on the I-Love-Horses list -- I just didn't get around to sending it yet!Delete
And we should schedule a Tracy art date before it gets too hot.ReplyDelete
YES we should! I will email you.......Delete
Each image is a work of art!ReplyDelete
Thank you shams - nice of you to say.......Delete
This is too weird -- I've commented twice and both have evaporated. (Maybe Canada Post is venturing into cyber crime!) Anyhow, let's try again. Wonderful mail you've created, Pamela. No surprise there! I hope your drought ends pronto (the postal drought AND the literal one). I will miss your birthday, but something is in the works. Hitting send now and crossing my fingers.ReplyDelete
Well, that IS weird and annoying -- thank you for continuing to try -- I really appreciate it. And I look forward to your mail.Delete
I alove that altered postcard. I might have to give it a try, though as a postcard collector I often consider them so sacred that I give them away before doing anything to them. but, some are so dull, they really could use some embellishment.ReplyDelete
my letter to you went off today, but won't reach you in time for your birthday, which must be right about now!
Hellooooooo in France, you lucky woman! I will look forward to my mail -- we will just have to extend the birthday celebration till your letter arrives....I love that embroidered card too....I want to try altering some cards like that..I already alter postcards making collages on them or rubber stamping...you may or may not approve...Delete
hi, Pamela ~ sent you something the day your altered post card arrived. hopefully it will come soon.ReplyDelete
Will look forward to it, stan......thanks.Delete
