A Heads Up

More Mail Heads for the Mailart 365 project. I am in the process of moving out of my Portland studio, and have alot of collage material flapping around in my wake. The mailart project is a great way to utilize this stuff! It was a tough decision to make, to move my studio, but a space has opened up in my house, and the hour long drive was feeling harder and harder to do. Time, energy, and my carbon footprint and all...

I will miss my studio and the community of artists in the building. But change is good, and I have an exciting prospect that I dare not write about yet. Just a hint that something big and juicy may be right around the corner...

Keep your fingers crossed for me, say a prayer to The Art Gods, and I'll keep you posted!

Happy Friday, All!

Welcome to Mailart365. I LOVE your head series. Do you mail them naked, or do they travel in envelopes? I think they are just fantastic!

One of the things I love about the MAILart365 is the variety of creative expression. I know I'm going to try making something in this head genre! Elena has inspired me to attempt quilling. And with all these Snow Days... it is crafty fun time.

Hoping the Art Gods and Goddesses smile on you!

I love your heads Martha. I sent something your way.

Wow Sue It's so cool that you'll try quilling. Keep an eye on my site I'll put up quilling techniques and free patters.

Hi Sue!

Thankyou! What a fun adventure! Glad to be on board. Yup, I send my heads naked through the mail. They get seen and handled and stamped - all part of the finished product!

We'll have to do an exchange, yes?

Best!

Ooooh, thanks, Elena! I look forward to seeing that in my mailbox soon!

Best!

Hey Martha - I finally got around to scanning your #1 - it's uploaded on my flickr site

I tried to replicate your photography as well, putting it up by a window ;-)

If you need me to email it just shout.
