The first mailing in the Liberate Your Art Swap is off! The next three weeks, lots of wonderful mail will be making its way around the world. So how many people were in the swap this year? From where? You’ll have to wait on those answers… I’ll share all of the swap stats along with a video of the postcard art during the Blog Hop, which will be April 16-20, 2015. All of the details on the video and the blog hop will arrive via email for those participating in the swap.
We had a wonderful Swap Day on Sunday! Here’s what it looked like around my house, all swapped and waiting for the volunteers to arrive. The swapping itself is a process that would not work well with many people, too many opportunities for mistakes, so I got up early to do that part.
Then came the sticking of labels and stamps on all of the postcards. With 8 of us, we finished in record time – 1.5 hours.
Here are the last of the decorated envelopes I received in this year’s swap. What gorgeous mail art I received this year! I think I will go into withdrawal after this. 🙂
A mermaid from North Carolina swam to Oregon, courtesy of Beverly.
I loved the message on this envelope, found within another envelope, from Chris in California…
A lovely painted piece graced the back of this envelope from Nancy in Florida:
Diane in Michigan is making the best of the cold weather — sending mail to warm the heart!
Another stitched envelope! This one from Jen in Arizona. Great “Liberate Your Art” motif going on here.
This elegant envelope arrived from Texas, sealed with wax. Kirsten‘s lettering is gorgeous!
Dani sent this fun greeting from Australia…
Another celebration of winter from Vicki in New York.
These flowers bloomed all the way from Danie in Australia! Can you imagine how many people smiled at the envelope along the way?
Kristen, here in my home state of Oregon, created a lovely collage on the back of her envelope…
And last, but not least, Cindy sends a bit of glitter with the phrase, “Not all who wander are lost.” I love that saying!
That wraps up the mail art for the 2015 swap. It was the best year yet for decorated envelopes. Thank you all so much!! It has been so much fun to received them.
The next swap update won’t be until the Blog Hop in April where we wrap everything up for the year. Stay tuned!!
