You know every day I go out to the mailbox and all I see are offers from credit card companies or checks from the ones I have. Yes the mail is boring. Hmm how to fix that, well I could join some swaps or have a contest or beg people to send me mail. So here is my idea. I think I would like showcase Mail Art on my blog and then I will have a vote and who ever has the favorite will win a little surprise. I have a copy of Teesha Moore's Art magazine that I will be giving away and I'll add some other goodies to it.
All you need to do is send me some mail where you have decorated the envelope. This is not a Halloween theme just do what you would like. You don't have to put anything inside other than a note that says Hi Kate here is my entry, signed Whoever. Now if you want to include an ATC or something because you just can't send an empty envelope then that is fine by me. Or I will accept any form of chocolate..... I am going to leave the contest open for a month. I will post mail as I get it and set up a way to vote, I am not sure how to do that yet but I will figure something out. I will announce our winner on October 25. Leave me a comment and I'll send my address.
Patchwork journal cover
I saw this on iHanna's blog this morning and wanted to share it with you. She makes a patchwork paper cover for a journal. What a cute idea that was. Go check it out.
