Today, I’ve got a few more of my outgoing mail art packages that were stamped, sealed and send with love to pen pals last month. I received some lovely postcards and a few letters this week, so THANKS if you have written to me. Here’s what I recently popped in a postbox:
The beautiful Holly Trill was doing a clean-out and was asking on twitter if anyone was interested in a collection of vintage cigarette cards. She was happy to give them away for free to any loving and excited home, and as someone who constantly collects little pieces of paper ephemera (either as wall art inspiration, as collage material or as mail art goodies), I was all over the offer. Inside the fat envelope, all the way from the UK, was over 140 cards in collectible sleeves, and about 30 other unsorted ones. It was such a bonny pile, that I only had room to share some of my absolute favorites. A few will find a place on my inspiration walls in the studio, and the others will most likely find suitable places in future outgoing mail art parcels. Thanks again for your generosity Holly!
I’ve got half a dozen of my outgoing envelopes to share, so that you can start your weekend off on a creative foot! Hopefully the recipients loved their snail mail treats, because I sure enjoyed making them.
