Fairy Mail Art

I did a few envelopes of mail art today as I had a stressful morningat the Dr's office where I sat with my 8 month old baby for two hours...why do they do that? If they are going to have me sit there and wait then make my appointment for two hours later! Do I need to come in at 9:30 if I don't even get called back into a room until 11, then in the room I wait another 30+ minutes?

Anyway, being creative helps me de-stress and gets my mood up. So as soon as I came home, I started playing with my art stuffs and the frustration melted away.

So here is what I created today...modeled on my new Corona Typewriter that I got as a Christmas gift this year. It just came in two weeks ago and I love it. I can't help imagining what it was used for, what kind of secrets it was made in 1937... so long ago... I wonder what stories it has hidden in it's history...maybe a long distance love affair, or letters to a brother at war, or an aspiring writer...who knows.

this one is my favorite
I'm not sure who they are going to just yet but I hope whoever does get them in their mailbox loves them.  In the meantime I need to get back to my art journal soon as I've been neglecting it since NaNoWriMo.


  1. Hi. I saw your blog comment on goodmailday blog. I am interested in being mail art/penpals with you. Maybe we can share mail art and letters back and forth as a new friendship if your interested. A lot of the mail I have gotton, which isn't much :( but I would like to have someone to keep sharing mail art, letters, ideas, etc.. If you are interested, just email me if you want. I am 28 years old, married, 3 children, stay at home

  2. You're so talented! I love looking at mail art but have no talent for it myself. If I were to get one of your pieces, I would DEFINITELY treasure it!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

    PS I have the same thoughts regarding older machines like your typewriter. The stories they could tell...

  3. I can totally empathize with you on your doctor/waiting situation. I had an appointment today, and had to wait over 2 hours to be seen. I actually overheard the receptionist tell the doctor that they purposefully overbooked appointments today. Complete insanity!

    Love your new typewriter!!
