Throwback Thursday ... Mail Art!

(Mail Art from IFJM 2016)

I confess: I love quirky art.  I love mail.  I love quirky mail art!  

In 2016 I participated in Roz Stendahl's International Fake Journal Month.  I had paricipated several years prior, but in 2016 I had wanted to do something other than a typical bound journal.  Since I love mail, I thought it would be fun to do a month of mail art.  

Each of the envelopes were hand-made, and all of the stamps were vintage.  Digging through the piles of stamps were fun for me and my kids, and seeing Mommy work on an art project inspired one of my sons to do the same.  (That same child still enjoys art, and one of our favorite things to do is a drawing together.)

Even though IFJM is over, the fun doesn't have to stop!  So I encourage all of you to get a journal (if you don't already have one) and start.  Today.  Right Now!

And for those of you who love quirky mail art, stay tuned because my Mail Art Exchange will be launching soon...!

Strange Bird...

IFJM is long gone, but that doesn't mean the fun has to end.  :-)

Working with a mini hand-bound journal and colored pencils, thought I'd work on some bird portraits... especially the strange ones!

IFJM -- from a kid's perspective...

My 11 yr old wanted to participate in the IFJM fun this year, so his fake author is a mailman who really likes mail art and things postal related.
