REAL LIFE POST!

I went away.


Photobucket


It was beautiful. It wasn't far and it wasn't for long, but it was much needed amidst a bunch of things like this:

Drinking 100 shots of beer in 100 minutes. The equivelant of nine beers in an hour and a half.

Oh yeah, and outdoors at noon on Good Friday. Mind you, I did not participate in this, but it sounds like something I would do. And have tried to do in the past.

Friday night, 4:30 in the morning (Saturday morning?), Laundry bin livin' is hard


Went to the hospital only once while I was off in the country, only once.

All in all, life has been good, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the normal swing of things? Hopefully spending less money and sending more mail.

More Outgoing Mail and Found Poetry

For Mim of the IUOMA

Photobucket



I've been really into found poetry lately, maybe because everyone seems to be talking about words these days. My friend just got a book published-a REAL BOOK!


For fellow Canadian Goop, who is planning a mail art tour out to the East Coast this summer! A little bit of love and encouragement from out my way!

SPARKLING, RELENTLESSLY
THE UNIQUE SPIRIT OF

Ben Sends the Best Mail

Ben is my best friend. Coincidentally, he sends the best mail.
The formula makes sense.



Photobucket

Zines n' drawings n' photocopies, oh my!

If he saw this, perhaps it would encourage him to send me more.

Spring Send Offs

Here's some more outgoing mail, while I try to keep up with this bogus New Years Resolution of "Send More Mail".

I think that resolution has slowly turned into "Have More Fun".

Either way, I'm winning, right?

This postcard is being sent to Fred One Litch, one of my favourite artists whom I've scoped on flickr.

More Sent Mail!

Just as I promised, a few more things I am sending out. Mostly to folks in the IUOMA, but also some friends.

I've really been enjoying making these lately. It's been coming naturally, which I can't honestly say happens all the time. I've been crafting with a good friend of mine who pushes me to explore different materials and compositions. A key example of this is the vintage letraset strips as seen on Jen's postcard.

Down to business!

For Kiera in Montreal, this was one of my faves of the bunch. I've been into trying more minimal elements in my postcards. More white, more deadspace.

A pep talk for Joanna Carabante in California


Photobucket

For my good good friend Jen. I'm pretty sure she's on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, but that girl is a west coast trotter, and I love her for it.

This one's for Robyn Wells who makes purdy purdy things: http://www.robayre.com/

Something For You?

Nothing pleases me more than a Sunday crafternoon.

Currently detoxing after a weekend of non-stop dancing, secret rooftop-spot parties, sweaty sweaty hugs, and three 6 AM bedtimes in a row. I feel young and happy. Also-tired.

Amidst the chaos, some work got accomplished. My good friend Steph encouraged these things out of me this weekend!

This is a postcard I made for STAUBS forever ago and forgot to send. Better late than never!

For Madge


I have a bunch more coming, which will be up as soon as I'm able to scan them!
Livin' life, Lovin' life!
