Making mailart every day since December 1st, 2010!
Mailart 365 has moved
Thanks for visiting Mailart 365. This site is an archive of mailart produced by artists doing mailart 365 from December 2010 to August 2016. As of July 2016, we moved to a new and more modern site at www.mailart365.com. Come on over and check us out there
I just realized that these weaves with a white edge do not show up well. Next time I will pit a colored sheet of paper behind them. It looks better in person! This one is Valid x 2 because the PO ate my first Valid card. Hope this one arrives in one piece.
Had a lasagne the other night and so used the packaging from that, added three Queen "stamps" and "cancelled" them with some rubber stamps I've had in a box and not used for ages - spot the little pig!
The weather has been so spring-like here this week. Today, it's about 35 deg. outside, and we've had snowflakes, then sleet! Who cancelled Spring? I'm really ticked off about it. Thus this mail-art piece: where I want to be and what I would much rather be doing!
I used to keep a daily journal in my college and early marriage years. I poured my heart out and really had no secrets that had to be hidden. Life has changed all that. Now I have to keep so much to myself -- life happened, and it happened hard. Sad that I've lost that in my life.
The little diary actually opens. I'm going to write a drunken memory on the inside pages before I mail this. It could be a drunken memory created tonight because I think I shall have three glasses of wine instead of my usual two.
The quote is attributed to Ernest Hemingway, who knew a thing or two about drinking too much.
Blithering Idiot barley wine is not a lovely beverage. I did buy this one for the label.
This beer is my all-time favorite beer. I could drink a whole bottle of this, all by myself.
Greg and I saw Spamalot on stage a year or so ago. I enjoyed it, but I'm not as big a Monty Python fan as Greg. When Monty Python and the Holy Grail came out in movie theaters in the 70s, I got so scared by the rabbit that I had to leave.
I was supposed to post this last night, but I got carried away with making work related mailart. Sadly, when I emailed the office manager a copy of what I wanted to send to our store managers, it scared her, so I guess I will be recycling those five postcards. Some people just don't "get" mailart. I'm not a scary person. Really. .
As I sometimes worry about my child, I cannot but ponder what thoughts must be going through the minds of mothers in Japan and Libya -- and other areas of the world where the citizens are not as blessed as we are. So, kudos to all the mothers of the world.
Playing catch up with materials I picked up in the almost outback.
#110 is my favorite as it's made from a really great map from 1936 and "country" is a term used in Australia to refer to the land. Not the country, just country. Sending to a mailart call about Aussie sense of place.
As big fans of Glee, youngest daughter made this a while ago but she used a rather light pencil for most of the writing so I went over it in pen last night and here it is - let the show begin, jazz hands and losers!!
