Had this beautiful infrared lavender landscape and thought this little lavender fairy belonged in it. I wonder what spell she's casting on this cute little kitten!

robayre - postcards #55-61

Sunday, May 01, 2011

Instead of my standard postcards, I've come up with a new idea for some mailart365 project pieces. It started out when my best friend showed me a moleskine app she had on her iphone. Unfortunately, she has a newer phone and mine won't let me download it. No harm because it got me thinking of the moleskine cahiers that I love so much.


4.30.11 Mailart little books7

I've been making my own little cahiers for quite a while now, and this whole thing spurred the idea to make some more but then turn them into mailart.

4.30.11 Mailart little books1

I'll send them directly through the mail, where the addresses, and postage are stuck right on the cover. Each book is 4.25"x5.5" closed. I collaged on some pressed board, and then coated them with a sealer.

4.30.11 Mailart little books2

These are the open faced covers. I stuck a rubberband inside each book so the owner can keep them closed like in the picture at the top. I haven't put the recipients addresses on them in these pictures yet, so that I could share them.

4.30.11 Mailart little books3

I thought it would be a cool collaboration of sorts. My artwork is on the cover and the recipient can fill the blank pages inside with their own words or artwork. I think it will be cool with the cancelled stamps.

4.30.11 Mailart little books4

It'll be a crapshoot to see if it makes it through the mail or not.

4.30.11 Mailart little books6

We print and mail booklets all the time at work, but those are through bulk mail and these are obviously not bulk. I've seen pictures of a banana and toast with postage and addresses being sent through the mail successfully, so I think it's a good bet they will make it to their destinations.

4.30.11 Mailart little books5

I made wafer stickers to put on the edges to keep them closed through the mail. You can see that below.

4.30.11 Mailart little books all

I really love these books and this idea. I think it would be so much fun, and so unexpected to receive a little blank book in the mail. I hope the recipients like them and use them. I can't wait to make some more.

#152 - Pineapple Time

Sunday, May 01, 2011
It is still before noon here, just barely. But, since pineapple is a fruit, and good for me, and vodka is made of grain, and grains are also good for me, I figure, what the hell. Time for a lovely pineapple (and grain) beverage.

Stamp Maypole 1 May 2011 (#79)

With it being the first day of May it was time to get out the maypole and so I got these stamps to have a dance around and I think they are all having a good time! Hard to believe it is May already, where is the time going?

I tinted this background blue to contrast with the red dancing costume. I liked the Oriental symbols in white for the contrast.

#151 - Background Music

Sunday, May 01, 2011
I can't figure out why the name of this frozen entree is love spelled backwards, but it was pretty tasty. Kinda hard to screw up anything with beans as a main ingredient, though.

And someone should tell the marketing direct that love spelled backwards sounds a bit like "evil."

#150 - Table Dressing

Sunday, May 01, 2011
We got an odd catalog yesterday, which immediately became mailart material. Silly fancy furniture, made cheap, and marketed in a glossy format that makes it look expensive. The tub o' limes on the table is just so ridiculous. It reminds me of pictures on the very funny Catalog Living site.

I wanted to post this last night, but with all the dancing and drinking at the palace, well, you know how it is.
