The swap will still be starting on January 8th though; I just wanted people to get plenty of time to get all the details sorted out :O)
**When you email me I will need you to give me your blog address (so that I know you are a blogger) and your home address for me to send you a piece of mail art in return. (I will respect your privacy and will not pass on your details to anyone and I ask you to do the same please)**
For those of you that have either purchased from me in the past or whom I have purchased from or even swapped with before, you may already have my home address (and you’ll be glad to know I haven’t moved house in the last 7 years so it will still be the same) I would still like you to email me though so that I can get your home addresses and know how many people will be participating in the swap :o)
I have added all these amended details into the original mail art post HERE
On a completely different note, the other thing I wanted to mention is something that is quite close to my heart.
Some of you have asked what you should send me for the mail art swap and some of you have even said that you didn’t know if your art work was ‘good enough’, ‘worthy’ or even classed as ‘art’.
Well this is what I have to say about that:
Anything you choose to make for me is ‘good enough’, you are an artist if you make ‘stuff’ it doesn’t have to be a painting, if you are a knitter then knit, if you paper mache then get your gluey on, if you make jewellery, bead away, if you make all of the above or none of the above and want to try your hand at something new, then now is the time….Seriously guys the fact that any of you want to swap with me is enough, do not worry about what to send or whether you have ‘good enough’ skills,
Micki says “Just get happy and make something” :o)
Now on with some piccies, here are the mail art pieces I made this week, I managed to make 12 pretty envelopes and 6 mail art paintings.
I hope you like them :o)
