I love to create mail art. My pieces often have rubber stamping all over the envelope. I still use lots of stamps from my days working in an Art Rubber Stamp Store. It's a quick way to add art! Although, mail art can be so many different things . . . This card is from the Ringling Museum in Florida . . .Read More
Jewels picked the French Willow and a corresponding quote that I really like . . .
Who so loves believes the impossible.
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
(ATCs I created for another swap)
Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.
~ Chinese proverb
Inside the yummy envelope was a photo card produced by a fellow blipfoto journaler whom we both subscribe to. What a treat!
My good friend, Frieda Oxenham and I have been exchanging our art and our thoughts since 2005. We've never met in person yet because we live across the ocean, but we've developed a good friendship through our many exchanges. Two of the groups we were exchanging small works of art with recently wrapped up their exchanges. I felt bereft in not having Frieda's art and her snail mail letters in my hands on a regular basis. She is very busy and involved with both her award winning art quilting and her mixed media art but we figured a loose, open exchange with a long response time might work for us. I decided to start with an ATC for her and made myself one as well (similar, but different) as a mirror of what I created for her that I would keep. Frieda has received her ATC now, so I will share both with you! Click for details.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
