I love the idea of making something and immediately sending it away to someone, for free, for fun. I usually take a day or less to make my cards and it suits my short attention span. It's very gratifying to hear that someone was both surprised and pleased by their small gift. I also like the occasional collaboration with other mail artists.

Thank you for the awesome retro mail art collage with a Coke machine and an Air Force man! Both my husband and I were in the Air Force, so this is perfect for our whole family! We both left the Air Force in the 1990s when bases were closing and they actually paid people to get out. Unfortunately, our relatives did not understand and gave us grief about leaving the military. My late Aunt actually called me a "dumb shit" for getting out (never mind that I had a small baby to take care of) and my husband's father complained about him leaving the Air Force for years. The way my husband and I saw it, one knows that they are dead serious about downsizing if they are paying people to leave. Despite everything that our relatives said, neither one of us have ever once regretted leaving the Air Force. - Gail Anderson
