Hello Fellow Farmgirls and Mail Artist Enthusiasts!
It is time again for us to exchange mail art with each other! The theme this month is birthdays-- each of you has been matched with someone whose birthday is at a similar time (I did the best I could, gals!) You can make your mail art a celebration of that person's birthday, or you can make whatever you feel like making. It is just a suggested theme, not a strict rule.
As usual, please get your partner's mail art in the mail by July 15th. You should get your partner's name in an email from me by the end of the day June 2nd.
If you have any questions or concerns, let me know, and when you get something in the mail, please please please remember to acknowledge it here in this forum and s picture would be even better!

I recieved my mail art from Jill in Maine yesterday. I absolutely love it. I love the fair idea, and we love the tractors as well. The only reason we go to our fair (De state fair) is the see the animals, tractors and exhibits. I am going to post a picture of this as soon as I find where it stored it on my computer. After an update all of my folders are weird.(recieved this the other day, but wasn't paying attention and posted to the wrong thread. oops) I love it and will get a pic posted today. I just finished my mail art project today and it is on its way. :) I loved doing this one.

Thanks Judy, You are too kind. I did keep a copy of the picture as you requested. Still looking for the second wildflower book.. somewhere in the remodeling chaos.

Sometimes when you go to the mail you get a surprise that leaves your mouth wide open!! LOL Mary Jane aka Madelena sent the MOST beautiful handmade creations! It's like she came for a visit & knew what to send! For a person that can't draw a stick manher water colour paintings is beyond wonderful! The hand sewn cat doll is sooo cute. She'll go in my sewing room! I adore flowers so it was really thoughtful of Mary to send a booklet of TX spring flowers!
The very best part was getting to know Mary through her loving lettter!
PS I've asked Mary to post a pic for me! Camera troubles! GRRR!

Doris in Red Oak, Tx....
I received your mail art today. It's great. Thanks for the bright & cheery seed packets & the notebook with my name on it. How did you know I wanted a new snack today and none of my cookbooks were cutting it? Presto... a new snack cookbook too. Thanks again.

It is time to do our August exchange of mail art!
I have created the August forum and here is the link:
I am so glad everyone is having fun with this exchange and I appreciate everyone's efforts to keep it going.
See you in August!
This picture is of the cards with each of your names that I match up each month. Although the teenager in our house pleads that this is "ole fashioned", I like it!
