Happy Mail

 For almost forever, I've been fascinated with Mail Art.  Such a fun thing to make the "outside" of mail, as much fun as the inside.

I hosted a Rolodex Swap for some of the Paper Cowgirls, so when I mailed each gals cards back, I decided the make the envelopes equally fun.


When I took them to the Post Office each day, the mail worker was perplexed as to just where she should put all her stickers and such.

 She did not want to cover up anything.  LOL.

Here are just a few of my rolodex cards.

This is one of my favorites...I made the little clock face spin.

This was old artwork that I copied, glued on and then just added the hand-written text.

Happy Mail...makes me smile.

Happy Art!

Art Show at Polka Dots shop, a few weeks ago.  My friend Sherri shared a booth space with me.  
We had a fun mix of vintage, hand painted and hand made fabric goods.  I love Sherri's fabric hoops.
Aren't they cute?  I know have the two on the right.  
I took a fun mix of canvases.  Everyone loves the "Happy Camper" canvas.
My friend Sandra Feazel also brought her cuteness as well.  Love her artwork!
She had a fun mix of vintage, market and her fabulous artwork.  
LOVE that moss covered manni form.

It was a great day to just sit outside and hang out with other crafty gals.  Of course, we all bought from each other, that's always the best fun at an artful gathering.  I personalized some painted canvases and just enjoyed the down time.  Hopefully we can do another show together again soon.
