A friend just sent me this link to help save the USPS. If you're in the U.S. please sign it and pass it along.

Hi Mim, Theresa, stripygoose, should we have sort of slogan, like Viva USPS, or Long Live USPS!! ???? I lie the idea of giving a mail art card to your postal carrier.

Yes, 1 August, stoppage of Saturday delivery, which only means that Clyde, my mail carrier, has more to deliver on Monday - so he'll be working very hard to catch up. He has a very large route to cover ON FOOT! Poor guy.

Hi Cheryl and Mim - I also make mail art every day on mailart 365 but am a bit behind with posting it. Sometime this year I will be addressing a lot of postcards and getting them sent so this group within a group is great! :>)

Cheryl, I make and send Mail Art daily - one side image, one side message. I even sent one to my mail carrier via my postal address. it came to my house, so I put it in an envelope and taped it to my door with the carrier's name on it. He got it. ha ha ha What fun. I send to IUOMA members and to my friends and family. I'm doing my best to save the USPS.
