and when I say "in the mail" I mean it...
This wonderful altered skull traveled without an envelope from Texas to Massachusetts in a mere two days.
My post office people LOVED it and were wishing they could keep it.
The sender is the wonderful Lisa Vollrath who is hosting a Facebook-based swap group called "Mixed Media Mail Art"
I think I'm going to love this group. Lisa is a no BS person and has set up a group for people who actually like to make mail art (rather than lurk in social media groups) and who do it because they love the process of creating/mailing and don't need a perfect one-to-one response rate on everything they send. I'm optimistic that there will be lots of mailing and very little whining.
This skull was part of a "Naked mailing swap."
I have a pretty good idea of what I'm sending my partner and will be spending a big part of today altering it. I'll reveal what I mailed after my partner receives it.
Meanwhile, my new skull is nestled on top of my file cabinet amongst many other random treasures that make me happy.
What's the weirdest thing you ever got in the mail?
