Mail Art – Update

Em's art card 001

Ok, so you know how my granddaughter and I planned on exchanging mail art after she moved to Nebraska?  Well, I had sent her my first card,  then she sent me her first card, and then I proceeded to misplace it!  I looked high and low off and on for over a month for that card and had just given up on ever finding it.  Then, while looking for some ink to use in a project, I found it sitting right on top of a stand that holds all of my inks.   Right there, in plain sight!  I hate it when that happens!  But, I am so glad I found it!   Her prompt was butterfly and her picture is of me chasing butterflies.  I love it!

She did give me a prompt for my next card to her.  It was to have something to do with flowers.  I decided to do a silly card using distorted photos of me and grandpa as the flower centers.  These pictures are so awful but they are also pretty funny and I knew she would get a kick out of it.

The prompt for her next card is “puppy love”.  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

Last week my daughter and her family moved out of state.  My son-in-law got a well deserved promotion but, sadly, it required they move.  I already miss them so much! Emma, my 9 year old granddaughter, is very creative and she loves art as much as I do.  Before she left, we decided that we would exchange art cards.  I would send her the first one with a prompt and then she would have one month to send me one back, also with a prompt.  Every other month we will send each other a new art card.

She likes the mustaches that are so popular now and even has a mustache necklace so I couldn’t resist putting a little mustache on her picture for my first card.  I can’t wait to see what she creates for me (her prompt is Butterfly).  I will share it when I get it.

I chose butterfly because I can’t wait for Spring!!!  It has been so cold this winter!

Keep warm and happy creating!
