Mail Art

Do you ever send mail?  I recently made these cards for two special little ladies in my family.  At the post office last week, the postman was nice enough to hand-cancel the envelopes, since there was no line at 2 PM. (Shocking!)  But he didn't seem at all intrigued by my handmade missives.  Not even a smile or a question or a "Don't see things like this too much these days."  Oh well.  Despite all the rules and regulations, and the extra postage you have to put on mail that isn't of a standard size, in the end, it is quite amazing how much creativity the postal service will tolerate.  I love sending mail.
