First, I had the great good fortune to receive a hand-made book from Karen at I Am Rushmore. Wow, what a tremendous giveaway to win!
check out all ten of the books she gave away here.
I have received some fun and fabulous mail art from Pamela of Cappuccino and Art Journal.
My mother and I are continuing to exchange mail art, as well. She sent me this bright orange and fruit themed missive:
Karenann in the mail over the past several months. Please take time to study these awesome collages; looking at her work is just as good, or even better, than any of the books about collage or mail art that I have had the pleasure to read.

It is such a pleasure to build these online and in-the-mailbox friendships, and to share our art and interests across the miles. I am developing such a delightful collection of artwork from these relationships, and would like to find ways to display the pieces, both to give them the respect they deserve and to be able to enjoy them as I go about my own creative pursuits.
How do you collect and display all the wonderful things that make their way to your mailbox??
