222-365 Samurai

Monday, September 26, 2011
Now that I've been using black mat board I'm finding white really ugly. I might need to go through and paint all my white blanks. But painting is pretty hard in my current workspace. We'll see. Does white annoy anyone else?

Fishing in Italy for coins 26 September 2011 (#212)

Monday, September 26, 2011
Had some Italian stamps from an envelope at work which escaped cancellation and appear to depict fishing. I then added these coins images which were taken from remnants of an old Prestige stamp book. Might need to go fishing for some coins myself as now near the end of the month and not much money left!

It's a rarity for a Postcrossing user to request a handmade postcard, but finally someone did. I think this is the second one I've had requested out of 257 sent.

Mail Art #81 With Origami Bow Tie

Monday, September 26, 2011


When we eat out at our local Chinese restaurant, I almost always fold the paper silverware wrapper into a bow tie while waiting on our meal. I slipped this one into my purse and then onto this piece of mail art.

#119/365 Brainy Blue

Sunday, September 25, 2011
25 Sept. 2011 for HPC: Layers of Flavor swap on swapbot. Cereal box with 1 application of white gesso. Torn papers applied with matte medium diluted with blue acrylic paint for a paint wash effect and gluing at same time. Apple cut in half and stamped pink ink on in lower left corner. Some letter b's, fleur de lys and the black onion net were stamped on but I wiped them off. Additional postage stamps, paint chip, brain, and air mail sticker glued on after base done. The haiku and Mt. Rainier is part of the torn paper base and is an old haiku and picture I took from an airplane that was a misprint for an old ATC swap.

Postal Pieces 25 September 2011 (#211)

Sunday, September 25, 2011
Moving to a smaller house earlier this year meant putting some stuff I should really get rid of into storage. Hannah and I went to the storage unit for the first time in ages and collected a small amount (no car so limited by what we could carry)which although small was particularly heavy!
Anyway, in amongst it all was this piece which I made last year as the backdrop for the Positively Postal Advent Calendar. I like it a lot so I'm not sure I want to send it off but thought I'd share it here and glad I hadn't thrown it away! Made up of a load of postally used stamps and associated postal markings.

#212; Color Radiates (postcard)

Saturday, September 24, 2011
color radiates

Sent to Color of Inspiration



NOTE: I want to send encouragement out there to everyone who has stuck with this project! It's basically the end of September and if you started in December (or January like I did) it's really getting close to the end! We've all made so many pieces of mail art by now and I'd like to say that I'm incredibly grateful for the openness that you guys have all had. I've adored exchanging with you all, everyone has their own style and it's all inspiring. Right now I'm about 14 pieces behind and I feel a little overwhelmed by that number but I am SO proud of myself for sticking with this project through this long. It's probably the longest thing I've ever committed to [besides my boyfriend, haha].
So what I'm saying is DON'T GIVE UP I want everyone to see the finish line because I believe in all of you. And I love seeing what you guys make on this website. It's great.
