I've got mail..

I decided to do some mail art for the winners of my OWOH drawing. It's something I've wanted to do since I saw an exhibit at the Albuquerque museum. They had a traveling show of mail art that, if I remember correctly, the Smithsonian Museum sponsored. I was wowed by the variety of work. I did 3 envelopes for the winners, 1 for Lisa O. who sponsored the "event" & a forth one for a Small Studio Productions mail art contest that I found out about through one of the yahoo groups I belong to. The 1 st one goes to Jo James of TheCartBeforeTheHorse, I blurred out or removed the address for privacy's sake. I used Basic Grey paper and stamps from MaVinci's Reliquary, Sunday Int & of course my own company,MadRatRubber.

The 2nd envelope goes to Merc @ FindingJimmie

The 3 rd envelope goes to Caryl @ CarylsRealm
The 4th envelope goes to Lisa O. of the OWOH event as thanks for organizing the whole shebang.

The 5th envelope is my entry into the"Empty Mail Box Contest", hope it gets there in time. And I hope they all get to their destinations in one piece!


  1. I'm too excited for words!
    I came to see if you had any new blog entries and the first thing I saw was my name. Woohoo!
    I can't wait!

  2. Surprise! Your envelope went out in the mail on Thursday, hope it makes it there ok.

  3. Wow! These are beautiful, I hadn't seen any before and it makes me want to give it a try! Hugs, antonella :-)

  4. I'm a huge fan of mail art, in fact I also threw some in the mail per the OWOH shebang, a great way to keep the event going! Your work I've admired for some time so to see you go PINk with us...well, my mouth dropped and I exclaimed, "YES!" right out loud. lol

    Thank you for contributing to this doll, what a powerful & expressive way to honor your mom- 20 years as a survivor, can't beat that! xo, Monica

    Thanks Gretchen!
