summer mail

Most of my recent mail has a decidedly summery feeling thanks to the theme at Mail Me Some Art.  If you haven't tried this site yet, it's certainly worth a look.  Karen has organized swaps so that she does most of the work....you only have to be creative!  She is so great about encouraging everyone to participate - no matter your perceived artistic ability.

It's so easy - you send your swap creation(s) to her along with some postage and she sorts and redistributes all entries so that everyone who participates gets something in return.  How easy is that?  Check out the site, there are several swaps going on right now....

I've received:

Dori decorated both sides of her card so beautifully - doesn't it just radiate summer?

Gina covered all the summery bases (how did she know I'd just come back from camping to find this?). Her dictionary pages are about camping and summer -school, squash, stock, theater, etc.  How cool is that?!

Lisa at DandelionSeedsAndDreams sent this charming little girl dreaming of ice cream - complete with a quote on the back.

Then there's this fun one from Tim, don't know where or from what group, but the 'open here' directs my nose to one of those perfume inserts, still sealed, just for my smelling pleasure!

The bird was hand drawn and colored then glued onto the watercolor background and arrived from Margaret in IL.  These two birdie cards are for the international postcard swap hosted by Shannon at Musings on Realities.

This lovely densely painted and textured background p/c is from Julie M. at StampinMaui (from HI) and arrived in a beautiful handmade envelope painted and stamped and made into real art.  It doesn't show in the scan but the flower is a dimensional piece glued on top of that folded red ribbon.  Thanks ladies!

Thanks so much to all of you for making my mail box so happy!

I sent:

My cards to Karen for the Mail Me Some Art (MMSA) trashpo p/c swap.  Scraps, fabric, craft foam, bits from paintings....cleaned my worktable right up!

Finally playing catch up with my mail art and am sending lots out - maybe there's some art headed to your mailbox!
