Wonderful Susanna! I met at the gallery yesterday to see the space I have to work with.. If I get a dumpster load of mail art, there is a strong chance of expanding the project over the next year.

Thank you for the invitation. Count me in!

yippee! thanks you guys--no limit at all NBS. I am going tomorrow to look at the area I have to work with, but will find a way to make it work. Who knows-the project might expand!

We do -but I need things that are light enough to tack onto a large billboard/bulleting board so it remains portable. industrial sized pins?

As long as it isn't too heavy I guess 3D would work. But I don't have extra strength German glue like Erni does! If there's a Dean, there's a way. I could never doubt you Dean:)

Don't worry, I have ideas to get around these constrains ...
