We're on the move!

I'm so happy! I finally did it - I purchased our tickets for a visit to Paris. We haven't been back since 2012, so my Français is rusty, but I've pulled out my books to review. We'll be there from the 18 October to the 31 October. If anyone is going to be there or nearby, maybe we can do a Mail-Art meet up.…

Mail Art Archive

I'm so excited! I contacted the Special Collections librarian at the university library where I used to teach. I invited her to come to our home and look at my Mail Art archive. I spent days and days sorting and organizing. I couldn't believe how tired I would get and how long…

Happy and merry to all

Wishing all a good holiday season and wishing for all of us, around the world, a year ahead that is better than we can, at this moment, imagine. And, as always, the ever elusive PEACE. At the very least, we can attempt to find it in our own…

Excited about what my kids do! A shameless post!

My creative offspring have done a book together. It'll be out in the spring of 2017 (but can be pre-ordered on Amazon!)

This is a result of the successful Creative Sprint project, which you can be a part of, if you'd like. I'd recommend it highly. I've participated and it's great fun. It's free. You…

Returned Mail Art - comments appreciated.

So I want to run this by my mail art cohorts and get your input on it.

Our kids asked a number of long time friends to send them photos of them and us, to put into an album they were making us for our BIG birthday celebration this past weekend.

And people did, and it was fun to see us and our long time…

Playing around with temporary-ness and email art.

I had a couple "conversations" with Keith Bates that got me thinking about the validity of email art. And I'm thinking that making temporary mail art, that only exists via a scanned image then sent through the interweb, makes people's electronic mail boxes just as happy as their physical mail boxes getting…

The Mighty Violet

My daughter's friend has a three year old who is in hospital undergoing invasive procedures. Cards would cheer her and her parents.
She is a super tough 3 year old who loves Peppa Pig and watching whale, dolphin and octopus videos on YouTube!

Creative Sprint

Join me in this really fun, free, creative project. I did it last year and it was excellent. You'll receive a prompt every day for 30 days. It's not as big a commitment as a 365 day project, that's for sure. I was able to use Mail Art during the Sprint. Sign up at #…

Catching up, I think.

I was looking at the stack of mail in my "to be responded to" box and became paralyzed for a moment - how had I gotten so behind in…

The Bicycles are here!

The UCI world races begin tomorrow in Richmond, VA, USA.

The Mail Art that was submitted has been installed at Rostov's Coffee and Tea shop, on the street where there'll be lots of activity around the main race circuit.

The folks at the venue installed it in the window and inside the shop, and sent…

Getting there - bicycles bicycles bicycles

I'm getting caught up on scanning the entries to the Bicycle Mail art call and exhibit. Still more to post and more arriving. YAY! I met with the folks at Rostov's Coffee and Tea where the work will be exhibited. We planned the display. It's all very exciting. 

So this morning, I figured out how to get the important info - the what and how part - on the Bicycle blog. "duh" kids used to say! Finally. This came about because I was at my Spanish conversation group and someone wanted to…

Bicycles and Brain Cells

Look what I got from Ryosuke Cohen for the Bicycles exhibit. There must be a bicycle in there somewhere, or the concept of one, right? I'm delighted that he took the time to send me Brain Cell #915! Who wouldn't…
