"I like the idea...but I think the hair should be set to the wind... It is so sad what ends up at auctions. I use to go to them but there was just too much personal stuff."

"A wonderful idea.  Mail Art with a story attached, it doesn't get any better than that.  I think you're doing a beautiful thing here.  Count me in.   You can get my address from Minneapolis Gnome."

"Thanks, Jubula, that's the kind of feed back I want to hear. My idea also includes the receiver sending it on to wherever... I don't need anything back."

Creepy or Innovative?

Some of you know I glean lots of collage supplies from the discards at a nearby auction house. I frequently stuff things in my bag just to look at them closely when I get home... better grab it now and discard later than lose it to another picker!So last week I grabbed someone's school record book with photos, grade cards, etc. (the pockets attracted me as well as the old photos) and a hardcover baby care book that had some writing inside. Got them home and discovered locks of hair in the big…See More

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I love to send and receive mail and get to know people the old fashioned way! Decorated mail is more interesting and inspiring for everyone. I like using vintage materials of all kinds and I collect rubber stamps, old postage stamps, and old photos. I also use gel pens for designing mandalas.

You're welcome Jeanne! Glad you liked it, it was great to include so many people in one go and I made a new mail art friend! - You can't rush mail art as Momkat would say... it takes time... In your own time... then I'll get a nice surprise someday.

Jeanne, what a wonderful art piece on book board (I think). Love the old simplicity patterns.
Hugs and much thanks!
