Hi THC--I had a similar problem last year and had to take time off too. So do not worry about sending me something--whenever you get around to it will be fine. If you need to beg off completely, that is OK too, I understand.
The most important thing is to take care of yourself.
I have a Mail Art Call. I invite you to participate. Would you like ?
Mail Art Call 2013: a CHRISTMAS postcard
Christmas is time of joy, rejoicing, greetings, gifts and holiday songs. It´s time of hugs, good wishes, meetings, forgiveness and promises. It´s time to generously share our spiritual and material goods, a time of worship and thanksgiving.
Subject: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Season's Greetings, etc. Small format (10x15cm). Handmade. Free technique. Send by airmail. Do NOT use ENVELOPE (must have postmark)
Deadline: December 25th, 2013.
The postcard will be published on my blog (http://igakuseimailart.wordpress.com) , making reference to the author. Offensive material will not be published. No returns. Documentation will be sent to participants. Please, indicate your name, address and email on each postcard.
Hi Hairy--How wonderful that you have engaged with the mail art community in your area. Your analog/digital collage is awesome! The idea of having the digital images contained within the components on the analog postcard is unique. Although some have painted/collaged CDs and sent them thru the mail, a somewhat similar concept. No rush on sending me mail art, I'll be on hiatus from mail art for a few weeks. I'll be giving attention to house and husband after the flurry of preparing an IUOMA display for an event tomorrow.
PS: Thanks for showing your studio--there is an IUOMA group for such photos, in case you have not found it yet.
