When I saw that the amazingly wonderful Micki Wilde from The Secret Hermit was embarking on a mail art extravaganza of her own I knew immediately I wanted in. I absolutely adore Micki’s art. From the very first moment I saw her quirky little characters and lovely ladies pop up on the Willowing picture gallery I was drawn to them like no other. You know how sometimes you just see an art work and it jumps out at you and you instantly love it. That’s how I felt about ALL of Micki’s paintings.
So I signed up and got to it. I was a bit worried that my art was not going to be awesome enough compared to what I would receive in return but Micki was quick to assure everyone that was sooooo not what mail art is all about so quit worrying and just create something from the heart.
Anyway I won’t blubber on too much. I know you just want to see the pictures. So without further ado here they are.
The beautiful piece I received from Micki. Can you believe it’s even my favourite colour in the whole world and it also has my “word” for 2012 on it (see here if you want to know about my “wanky word”)
I love her. She is perfect. I am so thrilled to have my very own piece of art created by the ever fabulous and gracious Micki Wilde. I will treasure her forever. Thanks Micki!!
Here’s the piece that I sent Micki. I really hope she likes it.
Also just a quick thank you to the inconsiderate post office lady who unceremoniously plastered my lovely painted envelope with really big fat ugly stickers when I went to post it. Grrrr!!!!
And a better look at the one I did.
I’m telling you now you just have to go check out the awesome photos of all the wonderful art Micki received from all that took part in her mail art swap.
It’s a sight to behold. See it here.
Big thanks to Micki for allowing me to be a part of her mail swap. I loved every minute (well maybe not the stressing if my art was too lame bit but everything else)
