Figured I should face a new month and the beginning of a new season with some unbridled optimism. My pen pal and artist friend Sarah ensures that I am never short on a supply of her “Half Full” hand painted tags. I share their positive advice by mysteriously leaving them in random secret spots around town. My hope is that these beauties will catch someone off guard, and will instantly brighten their day. Here are some snaps of a few of the happy advice tags I left around this town recently: (to see a few more happy “half full” posts, click here).
I’ve got half a dozen of my outgoing envelopes to share, so that you can start your weekend off on a creative foot! Hopefully the recipients loved their snail mail treats, because I sure enjoyed making them.
Today marks my return to chronicling and sharing my mail art on the blog. Thanks again for your patience, all of you mail art enthusiasts. I have quite a bit of unshared incoming postal treats… so I am spending the day continuing to reply to many of them, including these five envelopes from wonderful penpals: with love from Sarah Hutchinson Burke with love from Justice Bicycle with love from Nuno + Nela with love from Marissa Falco with love from Sarah Van Sloten
