From Tennessee via Wisconsin to Greece :-)

Some fun stamping and an "altered mail art postcard" was created!

Too funny this Bunny and Diamonds:…

new here!

Hello mail-artists! I am so excited to have found you all!

I recently started a 365 project, making a postcard each day, and I thought my biggest problem was going to be finding people willing to receive them... now I'm not so worried.

What a stimulating, inspiring group of artists! I am brand new to mail art but this already feels like home.

This is my…

Seeking the Sea...

I currently have a supply of Oregon Coastal Cities visitors guides (I work at a Visitor Center) and am wondering if anyone is currently enamored with the sea, beaches, coastal images, etc. & would be interested in some for collage material? We're cleaning house, out with the old & in with the new kinda thing, and I'm sad to be tossing so many into recycle... Maybe I could swap some materials with someone? Can we do that sort of thing here? Let me know your thoughts, please :)

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…
