Today Jan. 22, 2018 Your postage has gone up and it’s now .50 cents. Guess you’ll be purchasing a sheet of penny stamps or 4 cent stamps. Patty our lovely mail person in our 33460 Post Office alerted me last Friday. I truly meant to share this info so you could get your valentine cards out early and on the cheap. We all have a passion for something or another and mine is calligraphy and mail art. Perhaps you want to participate in this. Snail-mail, better described as mail art. There is a mail art call right here in Lake Worth. The Last one was for our Lake Worth Centennial and we got mail from all over the world, we got mail from France from China
and some from down in Delray, Boca, Ocean Breeze. That collection is housed in our Historical Museum. All that sent in can say “I have my work in a museum” lol. the current call was sent out 4 months ago and some mail has already arrived. Where to send your decorated envelopes and what exactly is this? On the bottom of this, I list two other calls that you might just enjoy. Usually if you send one to a mail artist (me) you get one in return. . Far better than an e mail, that you delete. Here is something you can hold, keep, reread, enjoy and show off. You may be sitting at your desk right now and doodling, don’t let those doodles go to waste on the envelope, address it, put the correct postage on it, voila!. SEND TO: ART PROJECT theme BOOKS N quotes P.O. BOX 46 Lake Worth Fl. 33460 Dead line March 15, 2018 Your mail art will be posted on the internet and showcased there. If you put your return add on you might get one back. put your e mail lower right corner on back so I can let you know it has arrived. There is always a possibility that it gets exhibited. Now if you want to get more personal you can actually special order a sheet of stamps with one of your favorites photos. thats a link. Bellow from my collection Top left was created for this blog with business cards as I was also known for painting flip flops. The bottom left is a cinderella stamp.
My collection of stamps above plus many more I will have to purchase stamps to make up the new rate of .50 cents. Don’t do christmas cards and am way late on my New Years card but rest assured they are on the way and no you won’t have to pay the extra postage.
