To all who post their outgoing mail art, specifically addressed envelopes, i invite u 2 be mindful & consider waiting 2 post ur pics until its received buy the recipient. iv’e seen a few pieces 4 me this past week alone & honestly, it really bummed me out. the element of surprise is part what excites us in receiving mail art, is it not?
Guilty as charged.
I will try to remember not to in future . . .
haha! thx MA, but urs was NOT 1 of them! (phew!)... I'm thinking i should just stay off the site, that may b the best solution....
I know I haven't put yours up yet (it is still drying out) but I have put up others and the same might be true for them. It's the enthusiasm of creation I'm afraid; that and a boastful ego!
ha! i totally get that (the enthusiasm, not the ego part)..i actually had someone ask me if i had received theirs b4 they put it on their blog. how very thoughtful. btw, u can ignore my written plea 4 wanting 1 ur wonderful collaged envelopes! & u can even send it 2 me empty, i won't mind @ all.
It will be both full AND empty . . . !
I'm with you. The joy of finding unseen mail in the box is the biggest rush of all! Let me be surprised, I promise to post (soon).
its a total rush! when my caretaker brings the mail in2 my room its the biggest thrill of my existence! if ppl would just w8 2 weeks 4 in country & about a month 4 international mail b4 they post, that would b ideal. but ppl seem post crazy; perhaps its just me, having lived under a rock 4 the past decade. i'v never even owned a smart phone. i think its just a mindfulness thing, perhaps ppl get so busy & don't have the awareness 2 stop @ think that they might b taking the air right out of the mail art surprise tire.
