It looks so cool I had to join but I'm going to be honest and say I may be in over my head ;)

I just want to add, you don't have to make the letter you choose be about you. If you want to, or would rather, it is totally okay to just do your take on the original. which ever you prefer. I am not picky. And you aren't limited to one, you can make and mail out to me as many as you want. I will be returning a little somethin' somethin' for your participation. :)

I am no artist, and I cheated and used color. Lol... I'm sure everyone's art will be better than mine.

Awe thank you Martha :)  I myself think it's a wonderful theme as well, Lol, but I'm biased. Ahahaha

I will be sending out everyone who participates in this mail exchange a Letter (A,B,C) from Edwards Gorey's book. along with some other things, for taking the time to make something :)

I dropped everything to do this, great fun, and a great idea Erin.

Erin this is hilareous! i am joining but I will not be able to do any work for a while, I am swamped at the moment. ' M is for Martha who was crushed by a pile of Mail Art' perhaps? I choose M of course.

Juana, I glad I introduced you to The Gashlycrumb Tinies. You have just introduced me to The Epiplectic Bicycle. Lol  Isn't Edward Gorey fantastic?

Comment by Erin Young on June 21, 2015 at 1:00am

Wonderful! I was afraid people would not join, either not knowing Edward Gorey or too disturbed by the theme. This is fantastic. My hopes are to complete the entire alphabet. I know it seems like a lot, however, I believe it can be done. Please feel free to share this group with people you think would like to participate. 

I hope you are all excited to start this mission with me :) 

Cheers everyone!

See you in the M is for Mail!
