Hello, and happy Friday everyone!

My name is Cydnie and it is my pleasure to be hosting the July Mail Art Swap. What better month to host than my very own birthday month? Since this is my first time, I’ll start with a little introduction—I’ll keep it short! I grew up in a small but beautiful farming town in northern Idaho. I moved to Moscow about six years ago to attend University of Idaho for a major in Art and Graphic Design and simply fell in love with the place and the community, so naturally, I took root. Shortly after graduating (one and a half years ago?!), I stumbled upon this wonderful, local, family-run business who just happened to need a graphic designer and, well, the rest is history! I love seeing all the avenues for creativity here at MJF and that’s why I’m very excited to be hosting the Mail Art Swap!

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

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

Since July is National Blueberry month, the theme will be anything and everything BLUE. Also, if the theme/challenge isn't right for you, feel free to make what your heart desires.

I will send an email with your partner to you on JUNE 16. Please, please, please send your Mail Art before JULY 31!! And be sure to include enough postage for your Mail Art to reach its destination.

I'd like to encourage everyone to post a comment on this thread when you receive your mail art. And if you can, a picture is always appreciated. We all love seeing the inspiring art! And a quick ‘thank you’ lets your partner know you received your mail art.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send me an email. I’d be more than happy to help!

Happy swapping,

~Cydnie

Hi Cydnie - Happy Friday to you too! The company I work for seems to change names, merge, spin off, every year or so and today is the first day of our "newest company" and the color of our new logo is 99% the color of Blue you used in your message.

I would like to take in the July Mail Art.

Thanks,
Kristi Connolly

Welcome Cyndnie. I used to do the mail art swaps. I recently found and put on display a piece done by Sara M., the walnut farmer. I love this piece of her work, so I would like to join in this month, and try again to make some mail art. We are glad to have you as the hostess!

Oh, some how I guess I surmised that Sara was closer to Had's age. Last night we had a wedding! Had's older sister, who will be 21 tomorrow, got married. It was out doors, beautiful but at 103° and no breeze it was HOT!!! Thank goodness the reception was in a huge cool room.

Here I was feeling sooooo guilty for being so slow getting my July mail art in the mail! So I finally remembered to come and read the instructions and I am enormously relieved that I am not too slow or late either! Yippie!

Dianna - I received my mail art the other day, sorry for the delay in posting. What a lovely package. The Prayer Flag is beautiful. I have to look into the Cynotype fabric process, looks similar to batik. The birds on the branch art board is so cute! The heart flag plaque will be added to my American collection. The dragonfly napkins will be perfect for our next porch dinner! Lovely art and a nice surprise. The Cottage journal magazine was perfect timing. My subscription ran out a month or so ago.

Thank you!!!

My mail art creation is all wrapped up and ready to make the journey to its recipient in tomorrow's mail!

Here is the artwork I received from Rebecca. It's an awesome poured painting titled "Ocean Waves". I included a close up so you can see the detail. I love the blue, turquoise and gold colors Rebecca. Thank you!

I'm loving these Mail Arts! The Cyanotype prayer flag is absolutely darling, I too will be looking into that process--how inspiring! Plus that poured painting is gorgeous, the blue and yellow look magnificent together. Thank you Kristi and Marilyn for posting photos. I can't wait to see the rest, happy Monday ladies!

Ladies, I received the most beautiful book mark from Marilyn Edlund today. She painted blueberries on it and it sounds like she had fun! The card is very pretty also. Thank you!

Thank you Kristi, your lovely package of blue goodness arrived today. I love everything andnyou win the prize for the largest ATC in my collection! I have a friend, Margo, at one time all the ATCs that we traded were too thick to fit in my album. :) Yours will have to join hers on the shelf. Enjoy the rest of your Summer!
