A glittery surprise was waiting for me when I checked my P.O. Box earlier this week. A piece of Mail Art in the shape of a heart!
Wait a minute! It was one of mine that I mailed out several weeks back! Oh no!
Smack dab on the front was a "return to sender" sticker saying the dimensions were too small.
Oh no they didn't!!
So far, 12 of the 15 hearts I mailed out all arrived without incident. Some post offices are pickier than others apparently. Hmph!
Even though the mailman dared to mark up the artwork with a red arrow and postal sticker, I think it adds some character to the piece now. It showed it traveled many hands but was ultimately returned. Just another unexpected side to Mail Art!
Now I need to send the heart in a standard envelope to ensure it's delivered this time.
But I'll have the last laugh with the post office.
I'm going to make the next piece of Mail Art I send covered ENTIRELY in glitter. Imagine the mess it'll make in the postal worker's bag!
Hee hee hee.....
