So far, so good. But then it's only day 5. I've sent mail to Morocco, Canada, California, New Hampshire, and Florida.
I even made some note cards using one of my SMILE collages.
Now for my pitch - Join me in the #CreativeSprint. Sign up. It's easy. You'll get a prompt in your e-mail box everyday for a month. You can choose to do it or not, but doing it daily is an amazing practice. Anyone can join. It's an international art game, sort of. It will change your perceptions, make you less anxious, buoy your spirits, reveal amazing things about your creativity, and you'll make a lot of new on-line friends all around the world. Really, it's amazing. It's free. Anyone can participate. Young, old, classrooms, schools, businesses, social groups. Do it. Join me. Please.

|The odd eclipse sky|
The eclipse was seen partially in our part of the country and, even at 86% or whatever, it was pretty phenomenal. The sky turned an interesting color, the light changed to something eerie, and not describable.
And I hope that my Mail Art recipients' spirits are lifted by receiving something fun in their mail box.
Hope you share some neighborly moments or get some good mail.
Hugs for everyone.

When I was notified that Micro Galleries was doing another event, I submitted a few images to see if they'd be interested and they were.
Yay, these pieces will be seen in Jakarta, Indonesia. I hope they "translate" visually for people of a different culture.

Butterflies always bring some joy into the world.
I don't know why the image of that Mail Art moved down below, but it did, and I can't move it back up here. Dang parameters of this platform. Dang.
I included a photo of the commemorative postage stamp sheet that the JFK images are coming off of. I scooped up a bunch of them when we were doing a mailing for a friend of mine, who's running for political office locally. I have lots of them, so let me so you'll be seeing this series a lot in the coming months.

The exhibit at the time we were there, two sisters from Buenos Aires.
I got a pair of earrings, but at the moment, I'm thinking "where are they?" I can't remember where I put the. Uh oh!
This collage is on a CD. I'm not sure who'll receive it, yet.

These two postcard collages are from the early 2000s.
I altered them by adding a circle and a stamp to one,
and a single stamp to the other.
This feels very satisfying.
I have more of these old collages to alter and mail out.
If you'd like to be added to my mail list, send me your postal address via a comment on this blog or to my e-mail address in contact on this blog.
However, I wanted to do something with them, I so I altered each on slightly.
A landscape postage stamp opens up this image.
I've turned these into Mail Art. They'll all be sent off to people on my mailing list. If you'd like to receive mail from me through your postal address, just let me know via a comment on this blog, or to my e-mail address.
I was excited to let everyone know, via social media and IUOMA group, that their work has been put into a library for ever! The work will eventually be digitized and made available to the public.
This summer, the librarian/curator and I will plan a program to be done at the library. She was very excited to learn that Mail Art is still being made and that the network of Mail Artists is very large.
