Making mailart every day since December 1st, 2010!
Mailart 365 has moved
Thanks 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
I recently joined the Portland Correspondence Coop - a fantastic group of like-minded
mail geeks. I feel so at home! This month myself and some of the other coop members
have been exchanging Portland-themed mail art. Thus, I have briefly detoured from my month of
alphabet mail. I guess I could have combined the two, but doing that
only occurred to me just now, as I write this post!
This is a photo of my favorite of Portland's bridges, the St John's Bridge.
I am so over winter! I must say that our winter this year was far less brutal than the record-breakingly awful one of the previous year. It's so nice to see the snow melting now, even if it means my allergy symptoms are going through the roof!
I am so glad to be a boring, married person as I hear all the crazy, bad, and weird "dating" experiences of younger friends thanks to the silly Tinder app. In all fairness, the app gets the job done, and I don't think it really changes much, other than potentially making a false and slightly better first impression. ;)
The front side is concealed due to wanting to surprise the recipient. ;). If I remember, I will post it once it's been received!
In Australia, we are remembering the Centenary of our soldiers landing at Gallipoli in World War 1 - here we tend to think it was when our country achieved an identity & we cut the apron strings with Brittain. Our soldiers first went to Egypt for some training before being deployed. This is all done from one piece of material - cut & collaged - really happy with it.
Just a funny piece that came together this way. I'm always reading (I should read less and make more mailart!) A good many of my choices are a bit weird and frequently personify death, so I got to thinking about what a drag being the grim reaper might be. ;). Even death must need a holiday now and then!
