|For Andrea in the U.K.|
I made #9A to send to my friend Andrea, because I couldn't leave home with out getting some mail off to her.

Bust magazine. A bazillion crafters all under one roof, including Melissa, who I'm "related" to through various blogs! And we get our vintage postage from the same guy in California. Pretty cool!
We appreciated their hospitality and many years of friendship, plus we got to see Keith's show at OK Harris gallery.
You can see Keith's sculptures on the gallery website.

Also, I discovered that it was hard to glue things down on a moving train. The trains was swaying a lot!
I was very happy with the bits I was able to glean while away from home. I really enjoyed the randomness of what came my way that I would be able to use. I'm happy with the results.
The first card made on the train is going to France. I thought it fitting to use an image of the Statue of Liberty (which came from the Amtrak Train magazine.)
The last card of the trip has a used up MetroCard on it, a gold seal (candy wrapper really( and a terrific image from an old photo that was in the train magazine. All in all, I'm quite pleased with this output. Now for tomorrow, to squeeze in a piece of Mail Art on a very busy day. I can do it!
