From Tess

I found it!  This darling piece, from Tess, who is twelve, has been lost in a pile of received Christmas cards until this week, when while going through every piece of paper in the house in search of tax receipts I discovered it. Such a lovely piece of mail art!  Thank you, Tess.

Mailart 2012 - 34.  Dragonfly.  This piece is going to Dragonfly Dream, a long-time mail artist whose health issues have kept her from mailing much art recently but haven't changed her devotion to the form.
