It's time to start signing up for MAY Mail Art! (I'm not quite sure where April went!)

If this is your first time signing up for Mail Art, please visit the topic Farmgirl Mail Art to read our guidelines.

FOR MAY, please leave a comment on this thread stating you'd like to join in. Sign-up is available through MAY 15. If your comment appears after you've posted it, that means you're on the roster.

The theme for this month is flowers galore! And as always, if the theme is not right for you, feel free to do your own thing.

I will send an email with your partner to you on MAY 17. Please send your Mail Art before MAY 31.

I'd like to encourage everyone to post a comment on the current month's thread when you receive your mail art. And if you can, a picture is nice. We all love seeing the inspiring art! And a quick thanks lets your partner know you received your mail art.

A couple more things to keep in mind:
1. Traditionally, Mail Art has been "secret"; part of the fun is receiving a surprise package from a surprise partner. I would encourage you not to tell your partner who you are until a reasonable amount of time has passed for them to receive your art.
2. Please be sure to include enough postage for your Mail Art to reach its destination :)

If you have any questions or concerns, please send me an email. I'm always delighted to help.

Happy Swapping and farm girl hugs,

MaryJane's daughter,

I'm happy you liked your MailArt Diana! Somewhere, in another life (it feels so long ago even if its only 10 years ago), I worked/was a Florist. This month was like a sweet memory of those times :)
I'm glad to be able to give you bonding time with your daughter! Show your colorings when you are done!

I just received a FABULOUS package from Julie! Everything is wonderful! I admire you crocheting girls all over! The dishcloth will sure come in handy and the garland is already hanging in my Solarium.
And, goodness, you have wonderful sunflowers fields! I love them! We grow some each summer and *try* (this is the keyword!) to harvest the seed before the squirrel or birds got to it before us -^-^- I can't imagine how much work it takes to grow and harvest them all!
Thanks again!

Rebecca White, your May Mailart was mailed out May 26th, I sure hope you've received it by now! If not, will you please let me know and I will resend another one!? I surely don't want you to go with out! (( hugs )) April

Thank You Jill, for the beautifully crocheted tote. It will sure come in handy for the farmers market and street fair.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

Dianna, I have received your wonderful mail art. I love it all, the canvas is so pretty and colorful, the cards are just awesome.

And what a thoughtful gift of the coin from Africa. Thank you hubby for me. Wonderful Mail Art, Thank you

Hello and happy June every one!

Aimee, I received your fun package today. The felted rose and rose fairy are lovely and the sachet smells so good. I attached it the fan that's cooling our living room.

Thank you so much!

Look at this amazing piece of art I got from Sara! It is such a dreary last day of May and this art really arrived on time to pick-me-up. Thanks Sara for the thoughtful note as well. The painting is a treasure indeed!
