|I put some cards on a ring and wound some air mail washi tape to share with her...
|And, of course, I decorated a card to go along for the ride...
|All tied up with some air mail stripe ribbon. She has received it by now so I can show you the pictures.
|Some funny faces for another Michele (@mbcano1 on IG).
My pal Susanna posted about the mail I sent her and
you can see it right here
And, my other pal, Virgo in the Russian Republic also posted the mail I sent him and
you can see that right here
|Another air mail theme -- the stamps anyway -- went off to the wonderful collage artist Cuan Miles.
|I sent Cuan a little pile of collages.
|Summery beachy envelope on the bottom...even though it isn't summery and beachy here.
|This is what happens when you find a book all about French kings in a little free library.....
|For my special Aries pal Vizma in Australia.
|A little thank you mail..

|I started looking at some old books I made.....and that me started thinking...
I WANT TO MAKE MORE BOOKS!
(I'm not yelling - I'm just excited)
|Everyone has a style and I like things fat and happy, bursting the seams and tabs sticking out the sides and tops.....
|I like re-purposing mail art I get into book pages. A fun way to keep mail and be able to sit and look at it.
|This one is going to be my summer altered book -- looks very summery, don't you think? A lot more summery than it actually is here in San Francisco but I do get out of the city on weekends alot and actually see some sun.
|Look at this marbled beauty - the covers and endpapers are all beautiful. I am cutting up some old file folders from Scrap SF for pages for this one. The colors are the same in both the marbling and folder (burgundy and brown).
|This little cutie is much smaller than the others -- postcard size....
|Look how much better the cover looks with a coat of Liquidex Gel Medium and some roses.
|Since this one is postcard size I decided to add some vintage postages to the pages....
|Look at these two beauties! I am making twins for myself and one for someone special, who I will be visiting for Thanksgiving....we are going to work on the pages inside together but I am prepping them now.
|Pretty but plain...hum...I am going to have to add something to this cover.
|I love finding different things for the pages....bingo card? Yes! I have used blueprints and menu's and map pages .....and I cut up a lot of file folders (again, from Scrap) for pages because they are thin and strong. You can collage on top of them.
|A very kind mail art pal turned me onto colored rings and she sent me these. I have got to find more,
|Being an Aries and being me, I never do anything half way so now I am working on at least six different books all at the same time.
Keeps me out of trouble.
Thanks to Linda F for sending me some of these great RD covers and the blue marbled ones.
