Mail Art: Time Capsule

Mail art inspired me so much. I loved opening my mail to find interesting things and thoughtful notes from other artists. That was when I was most productive.

I came across a book about mail art. Good Mail Day is a great source. Also, International Union of Mail Artists website. I recommend checking them out if you are curious about mail art.

A couple of weeks ago I opened my box of mail art. I haven't touched it since before I moved. I had a stack of post cards that were never sent and a stack that needed response. It went quickly once I got started.

I cleared some space on my desk and set out different stamps and inks. I hope to stay on top it this time. I also got some addresses from Post Crossing. I picked up some great cards to send out last time I was in Banff.

Lets take a step back and look at the chaos of my crafting. Clothes to alter on ironing board, shirts to stencil on the table, mail art album plopped on top of that to be updated, and shirts to be fitted in a big pile. I got a lot on the go, I have also been sketching some jewelry displays that I hope to build soon.

Yep, big to do list and lots of ideas. Isn't that how it always is?

What projects are on your to do list?

  1. I think I am the lucky recipient of your mailart ... I have a different address in my address book, but I'm pretty sure this bingo/roller derby card is from you :)

  2. Yes, it is. I moved. It took me a while to get back into my mail art boxes. I am so glad to have time to create art lately.
