#43, 44, 45 - Fold-up Thank You Notes

Tuesday, January 11, 2011


I did these custom fold-notes to send as holiday thank you notes to my niece and nephews. They are young, and I used Word to collage some of their favorite things onto the outside: angry birds, playmobil, and Treasure Planet!

Original Blend- Human BEAN- going to a friend who loves coffee.  It reminds me of the BFG.

To a friend who might love Colin Firth even more than I do

To a lovely lady who I am greatly indebted to for a large amount of awesome crafting material!

32/365 - The thinker

Tuesday, January 11, 2011
I had (it's all chopped now) a nice magazine with lots of flowers and birds. This bird took my attention from the first second I saw it in the magazine. It's looking so serious, like it is thinking really deep so that's why I called it "the thinker".

31/365 - Gossiping birds

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

I like Christmas cards but not that much to keep them. As I hate throwing things I decided make a collage out of them.

This piece was inspired by a mailart post we received from Mim a while back.

#42 - Future Farmers of America

Tuesday, January 11, 2011
Last weekend I organized a few years worth of postally used stamps. I often rip interesting postage from envelopes and postcards and put them in a large clear box. Every so often I'll go into the box and pull out a handful of the scraps and soak the postage off to sort into themes. But, that practice never keeps up with the incoming. So, I filled a bucket with warm water, dumped ALL the scraps into it, and spent the next three hours pulling the stamps off the paper and setting the stamps aside to dry. It took up all of the countertop and most of the floor in our tiny kitchen. But it was worth it. I found some real gems in that stash, like the one I used for this postcard.

This stamp is from 1953. It is postally used, but the markings don't show. Future Farmers of America still exists and seems to be an extremely worthwhile organization. In the coming month I will research the organization, and perhaps support them.

This postcard is going to my significant other. He is extremely patient with me, especially when I disrupt one of the main rooms of our house for hours at a time with a sudden urge to organize, and he encourages me in all my various passions. And, this postcard is #42. That number plays a huge role in our relationship. I wrote a bit about it on my blog back in November.  I like that today's date is interesting, like the date I wrote about on the blog. I will be mailing this postcard. Greg has his own post office box and it turns out that I am going to be away for a few days, so he will get this while I'm gone.

#39 and 40

Tuesday, January 11, 2011
I love Oahu. Sand, sun, ocean. It's around 30 below in the part of Alberta I am from. Blizzards and snow days. I can handle the warm rain we had today.

010/365 - scientist

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

When you think of a scientist, do you think of a man or a woman? Unfortunately in today's society most people would think of a man. Women's rights have made lots of great strides for equality, but there are still some barriers, especially for women and ethnic minorities. I am pursuing a degree in science, and I hope to help break down some of those barriers! (I'm getting a degree in geology, hence why I couldn't help but throw in that dinosaur on the right)

What do you think? How can women be seen as equals? What steps can women take to make things better?

Scored an old Russian art book from the op shop. I love the heavy eyes at the bottom, which is how guns make me feel.

New year -- new start. My 1/365 of Mailart365
What a fun way to start the new year spending lots of time in my studio
working on mailart.
This first one went out to AndyGeezer in London since he was
gracious enough to invite me to participate.

Inspired by a photo of Olvera Street in LA
this went off to FastEyes (IUOMA).
