Mailart 365 has movedThanks for visiting Mailart 365. This site is an archive of mailart produced by artists doing mailart 365 from December 2010 to August 2016. As of July 2016, we moved to a new and more modern site at www.mailart365.com. Come on over and check us out there
Whew! I lost my job. Moved. Packed the garage full of stuff. Emptied the garage enough to get cars in before it snows. Got a part time job. Surviving in the 47%. So.... no mail art since before the deluge. But Boo and Mim sent me some things, and woke me up. Hey, I gotta do something creative again. Here goes. I will catch up on numbering. In that entire miasma, I lost my database. Lost, as in, left it somewhere on a computer I don't have. I am living without a database listing of my mailings. AAAaaahhhh. Will I be OK? Yikes, life without a database. It's like being in the boat without a boat. OK. I am going to come to grips with living this less-structured life. Throw things into the mail without totally recording the crap out of everything. Aloha, let's surf!
Looks like my last post, back in ??? was #222. So,
#223 was mailing a stuffed dog to my son, naked mail. We colored on it.
#224 was mailing a crafty pod pocket to my daughter, naked mail. We collaged it inside and out.
(NOTE: The 'we' here is me and my after school kids who are ages 5-10. They think this is crazy.)
There may have been others, but memory is like a lacy doily, with many lovely holes in it. As I age, my memory gets more and more beautiful...
#225, 226, and 227 are pictured here. And I'm back in the saddle. I hope.
I will continue from #228.
Malala Yousufzai is my hero. This months issue of Amnesty Internationals magazine has her on the front page.
If you don't know who Malala is, she is a 14 year old girl in Pakistan who was shot by the Taliban for demanding an education for girls. Sometimes, working in education in England I forget that some parts of the world still deny this basic human right to girls.
"I don't mind if I have to sit on the floor at school. All I want is education. And I'm afraid of no-one"
She is such an inspiration and I hope they bring the bastards who shot her to justice
I'm creating my cards/envelopes in spurts, 10 or so per day... I don't know how many I have to get through, but I've already gotten through 23 and here they are :)
(The Santa isn't an envelope, I just needed to share the card because wtf.)
Getting better as I go along so I hope the next batch is prettier! Newest at top, here. :)
Random assortment of zines sent to someone off Tumblr who requested...
And the last of my fall mail art (which was really only two envelopes this year, I guess).
