But it all started off on Saturday when I received my Mail Art!!! It is a project being done though my Sampler Guild of the Rockies. Last spring if we wanted to participate, we filled out a form that had our interests, favorite colors, favorite designers, etc. along with the month and day of our birthday. The forms were then folded and we picked by the month we wanted to do the art. I picked a March birthday, and have until next March to get it done. My good friend Jean happened to pick my form and she mailed it and I got it on Saturday! Then, I could not decide if I should call her straight away, or just thank her in person when I saw her at lunch. So I waited until lunch and brought my beautiful mail art to show everyone.
Now I will show you all too!
Here is the front (name and address covered). Note the pretty stamp and hand cancellation by the post office. It was great fun hearing Jean tell us the reaction of the postal clerk that she wanted the stamp put there, then hand cancelled and then put in another envelope to mail. The scary part is she used the same post office I will to mail mine!
Now the back (again address covered). Didn't she do a nice job with the angles and the motifs that show when closed??
Here it is opened, you can see the beautiful lining fabric and the pocket which had some packets of needles inside.
I am so pleased with my mail art there are no words to describe!!
