Mailart sharing for a cause #collagemailart

Mail Art aka Postal Art costs nothing more than the postage that sends your gift across the world or just across town. The revival of this art form has reached a new popularity. The Pandemic that left us home alone and the Postal Service is dangling by a thread. So give yourself a creative few minutes, support our mail carriers. Now a bit of history it goes way back to possibly Cleopatra who mailed herself in a rug to Mark Anthony fait accompli. The first picture postcard was sent in 1870 and since then , news bad and good has been announced via letters and postcards. Lets not forget the creed of our Postal Service “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these curriers ….. and so we await our mailmen and women.

Our friends, we depend on them
