So how could I not send her something.
Reading through her blog you'll see Naomi often talks about her family and art and creating things.
Images of her daughters, new baby, and nature. Ladybugs among paper clouds and watercolored animals.
I tried to capture the essence of all of that and mailed her this…..
I took a piece of backing board (used for storing comic books) and cut it into the shape of a heart.
Then I glued down as many artificial flower heads that would fit onto the 6" space.
To finish it off, the edge of the heart was lined with shimmering tinsel yarn!
The address side covered with decorative paper.
A part of me wanted to push the boundaries of what the post office would deliver.
One concept of Mail Art is that the mail itself is the artwork so this was sent as-is without any packaging.
Would she get it in one piece? Would she get it at all?
I always hoped to be married one day with a family of my own.
Hopefully this Mail Art can be a symbol of how blessed Naomi truly is to have that.
