This is a place where you can blog your mail art which went missing.  It will give us an idea of: 1) How many Mail Art pieces go missing 2) Types of Mail Art pieces which go missing 3) Which countries were involved   It will also be a way for the "would be recipient" and the rest of us to see what you sent.  Awards & competitions to be announced at a later date!See More
