Mail Art monday

Monday rolls around so fast! mondays are pretty much my favorite day of the week. It used to be the my worst when i worked at a job i hated. and it gets even better with these lovely mail art offerings i have to share with you today.

here is the awesome lineup:

Mail art from Bonita Rose
i love the delicious red and black envelope
and the textures in this sweet piece delight my heart.

mail art from Brooke Butler
oh wow, what exquisite brush work!
i love the envelope too. just so divine dear girl.

 mail art from Cameron Reutzel
i love this little painting! such sweet friends sleeping beside one another
i love how she added a gorgeous ribbon for easy hanging. brilliant!
i may have to start doing this to my canvas panels.
 mail art from Ludgera Worms
i adore the shape and size of this mail piece.
she mailed this just like it  is presented here with an address
on the other side. i love the colors and the collage elements. beautiful!!
(and Ludgera told me she is taking on of my classes at Artfest. can't wait!!)

mail art from Annie Hooten
i adore the pe work on this amazingly colored
mail piece. just gorgeous soft mixed with bold. wow, wow!!
be still my heart.

Thank you all so very much for participating! i continue to be blown away at all the beautiful work that graces my mailbox!

Brooke and Bonita, I sent your mail art to you a couple days ago. And Annie, Ludgera, and Cameron...yours will be mailed today.

I think for the month of October, I'm going to have to put a "pause" on the project. I think i will have 1 or 2 mail art monday posts because i'm going to be teaching in Seattle oct and in NC Oct (by the way, there are still spots available at Serendipity. its never too late to join the fun!)
......and then locally i'll be teaching an evening class HERE

I may not be able to return a mail piece to you for the month of October so just wanted all of you to know. Keep sending them in though, and i'll still feature you here on my blog.

thanks again for your lovely words and encouragement for this project. it has been so fun!

here again is my address if you want to participate:
Mindy Lacefield
