Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
It's alot of fun to create and a great way to keep in touch with other creative souls! I'm a very creative, design loving person who is driven to make things. "things" can be mail art, crafts, wild design schemes and otherwise.
Uploading to the site can be a bit tedious, but you can usually find my outgoing/incoming on instagram.
I've seen debates running around on the internet about whether or not it's acceptable to repurpose mail art and letters. PLEASE reuse what I send you if you can no longer keep it or at least recycle it :) I clean out my mail art/letter collection every so often and reuse what I can. It's my way of passing the happiness forward!
See you in the mail!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, My style keeps changing and evolving as I discover new mediums. In the past I was happy using found paper ephemera and see text graphic as shapes. I quite agree there's a noticeable different of style between mailartists and crafters. I believe there's no right or wrong way to do mailart as long it is done.
