I’ve been getting some pretty neat mail lately. I’ve also been working hard, creating some nice pieces to send out. Here’s what I’ve got to share:

For a postcard swap I mailed in a few postcards with a map theme. Here was one I made.

In return I got some neat ones:

I’ve been motivated to make art with postage stamps so I also made a few postcards with stamps:

These I made with postage stamps and a type-writer rubber stamp:

And here’s one I received:

Here are some really cool envelopes I received. This one is made from a junk mail catalog page.

This one is from my creative friend Pamela. I have to read up on where she gets her template from. I love how the ice cream float stamp goes with the 60s yearbook theme.

She sent something colorful inside.

Recently some art friends and I have come into a bounty of cancelled stamps. At next month’s meeting of correspondence art enthusiasts we are going to make more postcard art with stamps. I’m very much looking forward to that.
