A Week of Celebrating....

It's "LOVE" day!! And it's also the beginning of the week of my blogs fifth anniversary. I started my blog on February 19, 2006 and I've loved every minute of it.

When I started I didn't have a clue what I was doing but I had discovered blogs and wanted to be a part of Blogland. Mostly I started the blog so I could comment on other blogs. In the beginning I just wrote about personal things....I didn't have the nerve to show any of my art.

Obviously I got over that! Now I show you everything....the good, the bad, and the ugly!!

A couple of days ago I came across these postcards and other larger pieces of mail art stuffed in a box and I thought how sad. I should send these to someone. So just to say a little "thank you" to all the people who visit me, leave comments (which I love) and put up with all my craziness, all this week I'm going to be posting these postcards and other pieces of mail art.

Each day I'll show one piece that I'll send to someone. All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me you'd like to be in that day's drawing. I'll use a random number picker and if you are the number chosen I'll send you that mail art. Be sure if you leave a comment that I have your email so I can get your mailing address.

This is just for fun. None of these postcards are masterpieces! But isn't it fun to get something in the mail other than bills and junk?

So here's today's postcard....

Nothing fancy! It's just some magazine collage, a few stickers, and I think the background was a paper towel that I painted. So if you want this postcard leave me a comment saying so and I'll put your name in the hat.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the next postcard drawing.
