Mail Art Workshop

                                          Postal Art Workshop

                 Join me at Ruth's Table and make mail art and support the U.S. Postal Service! We will make postcards, greeting cards and handmade envelopes using found and repurposed materials. 
A huge selection of my rubber stamps will be out for decorating and my die cutters as well. It should be a fun afternoon of creating items to be mailed. We all love getting mail. Make someones day and send a handmade greeting to them!

I got inspired to do more mail art  by my friend Jennie Hinchcliff  and her co- author Carolee Gilligan Wheeler who wrote  the book Good Mail Day- A Primer for Making Eye-Popping Postal Art by Quarry Books. Check it out!

I came across this little paper mail truck made by my daughter Elana when she was in 
kindergarten. Her class visited the real post office on a field trip. Of course I chaperoned 
the trip so I could get an inside look. Isn't it sweet? It is filled with Valentine messages.

New York!

 My daughter and I are heading to the East Coast for a college tour and some fun. I hope to get inspired and see a lot of great stuff and bring back some creative ideas.

I will post some of our findings when we return. Here are a few of my vintage memorabilia 
of New York!
