The day before I went into labor with Sam (May 27), I was tooling around online and decided to join the International Union of Mail Artists. You know, because maybe I wouldn’t be busy enough in the upcoming months. Heh. I never actively participated or updated my profile or anything, but regardless, a few intrepid mail artists sent their art to me unprompted that summer. I’ve finally gotten around to documenting & sending back now.
I think the first one I got was this lovely pencil sketched envelope from Michael C. Paul:
Then I received this rather mysterious postcard from Thomas Brown, which my husband promptly cut the stamp out of:
And last but not least, a couple stamped images from Petrol Petal of South Africa! The ink is gold, and combined with the delicate tissue paper, I’m afraid it didn’t photograph very well, but it really is pretty and will be beautiful for collage:
Thank you, all! I hope my mail art finds its way safely to you, and sorry about the delay.
