Collage is Cool!

I've been having fun lately creating some snailmail with collage. Every once in awhile I go through my stash of magazines and catalogs and cut out interesting images, color combinations and designs. I keep this collage in a folder and pull it out every so often when I have a block of time to get a little messy. You know, glue sticks and stuff.

I enjoy altering the image to incorporate a "postal" element and adding it to a card or envelope for maximum mailbox magic!! (My favorite!)

I never considered myself an artist.  I was always self conscious and critical of anything I did.  "I'm not a real artist," I would tell myself.  Well...I got OVER that! If you have the urge to create something then do it! Let your imagination run wild and share your joy of creating with others. It doesn't have to be perfect. If you are afraid other people will ridicule your work then send it to ME!  I promise to receive your positive mailart with joy!

Try some collage mail art today!  It's magical!

Go Postal, Everybody!!

XOXO Mrs. Murphy

I Mustache You A Question...

I've been falling behind on my snailmail creating. I did receive several wonderful letters and post cards during the months of February and March. My "to reply" pile is growing ever bigger!! 
There is no time like the present to dive "write" in!! 

Go Postal, Everybody!!
