Pacific Northwest Mail Artists

This group is for mail artists in the northwest corner of the U.S. and British Columbia.  Exchange mail art with your region's artists and maybe meet in person.  We are planning quarterly meetings in the Seattle area where we will make mail art together and share what we are working on, as well as some favorite pieces we have received.  We'll also share tips and techniques.  Put a face to the name on the envelope!See More

Hi Jan, thanks for asking, I would like to exchange Mail Art with you. I'm also not a fan of add and passes. Saw your Pinterest, nice collection - and looks like you like birds. ;-)

Hello Jan! Thank you so much for the snail mail welcome. The postcard is a beaut - love the ghostly image and bright colors. This isn't my first rodeo here (it's been a few years), but I'm excited to get back to the swing of things. I sent you a little something today!

Thank you for adding me! I look forward to receiving whatever orange you send my way. I visited Anacortes once. Lovely little part of the world. I was there when the lavender wasn't blooming, alas, but I did get to the Hoh rainforest and about died from awe.

Yes indeed, Jan!! Already friends but official is always good, too! Many thanks!  ~Bill@TheOlathePoste

Jan your Valentine arrived today. nicer when less expected! I  haven't sent any this year, overtaken by an early Spring.

Definitely the stitching was just to fill the hours at sea when there was no wind to drive the boat I doubt he'll be stitching the next time he goes. It was a brief, torrid affair with the needle, which hobby I can finally reclaim, now that I don't have to share my DMC cotton floss and precious embroidery hoops with a bearded old salt of the sea. :)

Hi Jan, Bathtub made it around the world, I got him back in March of 2018...though not for long, he was a good boy for a year, but now he is talking about flying (at least not sailing) to S.America for an 8 month walk, Chile to Ecuador. The only reason we have stayed together for 20 years, I think, is that we are so often not together at all. :) Reunions take on the thrill and excitement of new relationships because I forget, between one moment and the next, what he looks like, so it feels like a different guy each time. Or you could say I feel like I'm cheating on my husband with my husband...

I'm finally getting this piece up from Cherub, but didn't get the envelope scanned, also fine. I'm thinking of using this as a luggage tag as it's nicely laminated! (Can't get the photo to show up, waaanh)

Great ATC from Keith Chambers
