Recent Envelope Art

There's been a sad lull in the department of mailing envelope art.  That HAD to change!  The withdrawals are not a pretty sight.
 
Envelope Front
 
I sent it across the globe.  That's definitely NOT instant gratification.  More like hand wringing and worries if your baby will make the trip ok alone.
 
A bit dramatic you say?  Well, yes, but it's really a small piece of my being that I put on paper as a tangible connection to me that I trust the postal system to keep safe and deliver to my friends.

Envelope Back
 
The extremely few times that my mail art goes astray, I hope only that it finds it's way to a kindred spirit or just a kindly being who will enjoy it.
 
A good mail day to you,
xxx
Annie

I can only surmise that this exquisite work of art on the finest of thin papers was brought across the Atlantic by Mr. Head-Post-Office himself, carrying it on a velvet pillow, as it arrived with not a mark out of place. There is no better mail to find on your doorstep than mailart from Annie. Thank you Annie, a million times.

It's a beautiful piece. Did it get where it was supposed to go or are you still waiting?

Fabulous envies, Annie. Love the vintage sepia tones you used with these images. I'm sure you made many people very happy along the journey.

Annie, you mail art just keeps on getting better and better! You are a true artist! I couldn't imagine the sadness of losing one in the mail delivery system.

Do you remember that the first piece of mail art you sent me did go a stray! Sisters, sisters, there were never more devoted sisters. That is the first thing that came to mind when I saw your wonderful mail art. How brave you are to set your baby free!
