Mail Me Something

Mailing Postcards

Scored and Ready




For five Tuesdays, starting July 19, 2011, I spent the day at the letterpress studio at Druckwerkstatt in Berlin making printed things; I made enough of everything I printed to send a copy to people around the world who had signed up for something I dubbed Mail Me Something. Here’s what I produced:

  1. Postcard from Berlin
  2. Alphabet Book
  3. Vollmond Kalender 2012
  4. Frühling, Sommer, Herbst, Winter
  5. Thank You Card

I had so much fun with the project, I’ve decided to keep going.

Kids and I loved receiving your letters in the mail. Children felt extra special having something addressed to them.

Even though I have been following your blog for several years now, this is, if I recall correctly, the first comment I am leaving here. I also just registered for the Mail Me Something project. I love your blog and I love PEI. I don’t live up there anymore but I keep in touch with the beautiful island through your blog. Please keep the posts coming. Kudos from Mexico, Seigi.

I have a small exhibition going in my house. The “seasons” cards are on my mantel, and get rearranged every three months. (How you choose to arrange them probably says something about you — do you put the current season on the far left, meaning you only look forward?)

How’s your funding? Are you ready for new donations toward materials and postage—-and is your PayPal account still up and running?

Lovely poem arrived in the mail today. Thank you for keeping it (really) real.
