Most of this haul is for the upcoming Maritime Mail Art, a show that I will hang tomorrow in Ipswich on the waterfront at the Theta Cafe in Ipswich (UK), just in time for the Maritime Ipswich event! 

I think I have added two countries since the show on Cranberry Island, so have more than 20 contries represented.  Elaine Elliott, from Martham school in Norfolk, inspired a group of children who she took on a residential trip to Scarborough  This is the second time these students will have shown their mail art to the public in an exhibition I've hung! Huge thanks and congrats!


I won't have time to blog the individual pieces until they come down next week - for the moment you will need to be satisfied with a postage stamp view!  Many, many thanks!

Thank you , Rebecca, for showing this collection.

Good to see that the altered Thess postcard arrived in time.

May you have a great successful exhibit!

Rebecca--thanks for letting us know that our mail art arrived for the Ipswich display. Look forward to seeing some pics. You are so thoughtful to document it all for us-- almost as good as being there.
