MAIL IN...


I got mail today! Besides the beee-utiful ATC from my friend Sanna, I got one of Robot's Kool-Aide postcards, and a RECYCLED (How cool is THAT?!) envelope full of fluxus bucks and other intriguing pieces of paper from Dr. Fluxbuxenstein herself - Ex Posto Facto. I'm inspired! I've already cut myself a (very simple!) stencil, and plan to make mail art this evening - postcards, collages, drawings, decorate any recyclable envelopes I can find, and add to fluxus bucks.
That's it for now. I'll probably edit this and write more tonight.

food would be great for at home...but we have to have something for class and that would surely spoil.
good idea for future home painting though. thanks!

Thanks for the comments, Carrie and p.t.
Carrie, Fluxus bucks are sort of like 'fantasy dollars'. Yes, they are exchanged in the mail, and each person makes some kind of artsy addition to the buck, before passing it on to someone else. That is the whole idea - to collaborate on the art and have fun. I am sending stuff to other mail artists who have either listed their addresses and call for mail art on their blogs or websites, or who have sent me mail art with a return address.
I am REALLY enjoying this! :)

Looks like the Spam Commentor that has hit me has hit you too. My condolences.

And it only took a minute to remove all four of the spam comments. ;)

Wanda, I was curious about what Flux bucks were also, so I came to leave a comment and found the answer. Your mail art sounds very interesting and fun. That is what art is all about!
Hugs,
