HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!!!!






HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ARTFUL MAIL GROUPIES!

We celebrated our one year "birthday" on February 20th, and what a wonderful and creative year it has been.  There were some challenges, of course, but we have weathered the storm and survived those and are moving forward with great gusto!

To celebrate our group birthday, we're having a big giveway to one lucky member of the group. A present to you, to thank you for your support, encouragement and continued participation on our creative journeys.  Without you, we are nothing, and we know it.  You are loved, valued and you keep our lives filled with love, excitement, ideas and creativity 365 days of the year!

  9. OK I'm doing this again, because I'm worried it didn't go through the first time. Would hate to be ineligible to win this FAB prize!
    OK, what do I like about mail art? EVERYTHING! The anticipation of it. Opening my mailbox and seeing a tarted up envie. Opening it. All the love and creativity that went into filling the envie. The goodness/contents spilling out of the envie. Looking over the goodies again and again. See - everything! <3

  13. Happy Anniversary to such a wonderful group...Not only has it been such a wonderful group for me but to so many others ...We all have our troubles and to have some one send you such amazing works of art not only that but it takes lots of time and in the world today that is something that is precious and it takes money to pick up that something special then to post and money is something lots of us stretch pretty thin...With that said this group gives its all . What holds it all together is a few wonderful lady's Thank you Betty, Melody, Tamie, Lynn. This is just not any old group for lots of us it is about friendships and connecting to the world of art and creativity, to share with others there talent and to learn of others talents and ways.. This group means many things to a lot of us. To go out to our mail box and see a letter or a package most of them have such amazing colors and happiness on them before we ever even open them...the excitement and the feeling is priceless to know some one took there talent, time , and money just for us!!! In the fast world we live in with so many demands and so many issues we all have this group means so much to each one of us...I want to thank you AMG for a Wonderful Amazing Year!!!!!
