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.
Thanks for dropping by my art site. I'm Mary Jo Cartledgehayes -- known in the global mail art community, which is fond of invention, as Boo Cartledge.
I'm part of the global coterie of artists who reject corporate control of art, artists, and minds. We call it the eternal network and express ourselves in art sent through the postal service (aka mailart). Like the Terminator in the great movies, we never, ever stop.
Send me a piece of mail art, and I'll post it here and send you a piece in return.
NEW! new! NeW! ADDRESS as of July 5, 2011: Boo Cartledge 2907 Rockford Lane Louisville, KY 40216 USA
