The theme for May Mail Art 2024 is:

Language

How fun can this be? We know you don't have time to learn to speak another language. But you might make a little 'blank' journal with one page featuring words in, say, Italian, like 'Glitterati Literati,' and the opposite page featuring the English translation, 'Beautiful Literature.'

Hold on. Your creation doesn't have to be about a foreign language. How about the 'Language of Flowers,' which was a big deal in Victorian times? Wouldn't a handmade Victorian card be lovely?

Or ... what's the Japanese character for 'love'? Paint a picture with that symbol.

Or ... how about sign language for the deaf? Or the new developing language, 'protractile,' for the deafblind?

Would an auto mechanic have any clue what a 'fat quarter' was?

Colloquial this and that, by golly, by gum. You say tomahto, I say tomaeto.

I'm looking forward to getting your package Debbie. It'll be perfect I'm sure! That's the beauty of mail art--it's the creator and creation of it that's most important. I have yours partially completed. Just need more than two shakes of a lamb's tail to get it finished.

Sheila/VT Oma, have you heard from Emily/citychick03, your partner????

Sent off April's on Friday! MaryJane, this was a tough one to come up with for me, brains not working too well but once I thought of something 'language' speaking, I flew threw it! I love your challenges! :)]

That's great news Dianna. I'm putting the finishing touches on my mail art. Hopefully, I'll find time this weekend to finish it. My first B&B guests of the season show up Thursday. We've had every surprise from leaky roofs to an invasion of ants in the shower house:)

Debbie!!!!!!!

I got your mail art late Friday. Every time I walk by it on my counter, it puts a smile on my face. I open it up to a different page every day. Your little handmade book is full of surprises and hidden treasures. Happy. It's my happy place.







I've never come across Fair Trade's Friendship Tea. Such an excellent idea! And so good and wholesome. I need to get some for gifts as well. It's the perfect statement.

Maryjane, I am so happy your little book arrived and it makes you smiles. I ran across the fair trade tea on Amazon first time I had seen it too. Enjoy both.
Have a beautiful rest of your week.

Big Hugs,
Debbie

Oh Mary Jane, I'm so sorry to hear all the troubles! Yuk. They do seem to hit all a0t once in the most inopportune time! ( here too) I hope everything is ready for your first guests now! Someday I hope to be one! :)

Debbie, how sweet is that! I love it! Funny, there were so many ideas as floating in my head and I too settled on the language of friendship! Great minds. .

Well, the postal system has done it again! Mail priority may 31 and they did good getting it to Portland June 3rd. But for some crazy reason they sent it on to Rochester NY, then several NY facilities in which now its going in a circular circuit between Elmira, Rochester and big flats, twice. Ummm, duh? So I called and reported it Friday am. Let's see if they can get it unstuck. In the meantime, I'm working as quick as I can on number two.

So sorry April

Thank goodness, April got her box yesterday. It was crushed but luckily, I had used sturdy materials! Lol, 10 days for 3 day delivery. Why is the system getting worse as prices are going up? :(

Hi ladies, I receive the most beautiful friendship totem from Dianna! It made it's way around the country before it decided to arrive, so this beautiful little lady is well travelled! I love her, Dianna, thank you! And, the put the friendship sticker on her as well, where you had it tucked under the ribbon. Thank you for such a beautiful mailart! Yours in finally completed, and I hope to get it in the mail by mid week, need to pack it now, as yours is fragile. I'm so sorry it's running late, I started this new job and it's been quite the challenge to adapt! Thank you for your patience!

Thank you so much MaryJane for my May Language Swap Artwork Envelopes that arrived yesterday. We spent lunch looking at the words, trying to pronounce them and then trying to figure out their meaning. We guessed one or two, what fun we had and spent quality family time together. Thank you too for sending along the meanings for the words as well, all such interesting words. Nope we did not get the meaning of most but enjoyed reading your antidotes you added to the definitions.
Thank you again MaryJane another great Mail Art Swap.






Big Hugs,
Debbie
