Mail Art and Dots!

 Here's a photos that N. took of me using an app. on his phone. Pretty fun. Dotty me!
 This is my 900th piece of mail art since I started to number them on 1 Dec. 2010. I was pretty excited about doing this one, didn't know what it'd be, or who'd get it. In my studio I just grabbed the first thing at hand, and decided that a person who hadn't had mail from me in awhile would get it.

Can you see the text? That's the title of this piece. "suddenly very foolish, she grinned, proudly and wide."
 This is #899. I used a very old piece of paper that had the name Dean written on it so I'm sending it to my friend Dean.

I've prepared a small mail art kit for myself, and a number of postcard blanks, because I'm off to Los Angeles tomorrow to see my 98 year old Mom.  I'll photograph and post what I make while on the other coast.


Today, I did my Mail Art talk for the Osher Institute at the University of Richmond. It was a lot of fun and the participants were so involved and interested. I hope I've created enough excitement that they'll make mail art on their own and have the same wonderful experiences that I have.

Thanks for the warm welcome over at iuoma and for the p/c (#895)! What a great idea to number them; I'll borrow that one. I'm your newest follower here -
