Mail Art arrived July 9 from Florida - Norma Soulet (Port Saint Lucie) is the sender.
Norma created a lovely mixed media piece. On a 'Gelli print' postcard, she affixed a die-cut vintage portrait of a young girl. This die-cut (Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Paper Dolls) was one of the goodies I had recently sent to Norma. The sentiment on the card reads "Welcome each day as a fresh new beginning."
Norma also gifted me with some vintage-inspired ephemera.
I always appreciate mail art from Norma Soulet! Thanks much!
August 19, 2019: Great mail art day, with the arrival of Steph Dodson's beautifully decorated envelope (chockful of awesome stuff)...
This is the first mail I received from Steph Dodson, who has been involved with mail art since 2011. I believe my first encounter with Steph is via the IUOMA-ning group, "A TOUCH OF VINTAGE."
Barbargirl (Key West, FL) sent two pieces of mail this past summer.
Barbargirl's mail from June is chock full of stuff - including a colorful, tri-fold card. A pocket (with lots of goodies enclosed) is attached to the inside. I especially like the 'First National Bank of Gotham' one dollar bill!

A few months back I signed up for USPS "Informed Delivery."
As per the postal service's website: "Informed Delivery allows you to view greyscale images of the exterior, address side of letter-sized mailpieces and track packages in one convenient location.*
* Images are only provided for letter-sized mailpieces that are processed through USPS' automated equipment"
This is the greyscale image of mail I SHOULD HAVE received from Barbargirl. What a darling piece! Too bad I didn't get a chance to see what's inside!
Thank You BARBARGIRL, for the mail that ALMOST ARRIVED!
