  1. Hi all! As an off-and-on member of the MMSA community I wanted to pass along this call for volunteers/art exchange. Please consider taking part in this engaging opportunity!!

    Creative Community Connections (CCC) is a program designed by Chicago Methodist Senior Services (CMSS) Arts Programming Coordinator Jenn Ross, MAAT, and CMSS resident Adrien Pikovsky. CCC is designed to help older adults within the CMSS community engage with creative people in the greater Chicagoland area, across the country, and around the world. The mission of this program is to reduce isolation and improve quality of life for residents by assisting them in developing new, creative relationships by providing an outlet to share their story, their voice, and their talents. This program is based on the concept of Mail Art and incorporates letter writing, creative engagement, and relationship development. 

    How YOU Can Take Part:

    Because the focus of this project is individualized attention, we are reliant on community interest to engage as many residents as possible. Taking part in this program can be as small or large of a commitment as you would like it to be and can be equally rewarding. We ask that volunteers provide a personal, creative expression (art, poetry, etc.) and a short letter to the resident. In turn, you will likely be receiving a similar response from one of our resident community members! Due to the relational nature of this program, each volunteer will be specifically matched with a resident in order to provide a compatible, engaging partnership.

    If you would like to volunteer for this engaging opportunity, please contact Jenn Ross at (773) 769-2255 or jenn.ross@cmsschicago.org for more information and to be paired with a resident that matches your interests and personality!

    1. Jenn: You may want to consider posting this on the justserve.org website, which lists volunteer opportunities across the country. There are options for "volunteer from home" tasks, and this sounds like an ideal venue for that.

  2. Hi Jenn! Can I share this with my mail art friends & followers on Instagram & have them reach out to you? I will point them to the blog rather than post your info on IG.

    Thanks! Carrie

  3. Hi! I used to do a lot of swaps, but have been out of the loop for a while. I am interested in getting started again! I swap almost anything! I particularly love anything stamp related, since I'm a stamp collector, but I also love art of any kind, ATCs, and trading with people outside of the U.S. I am a florist, bead and fiber artist, embroiderer, and jewelry designer. Email me at erikaledwards@yahoo.com if you want to trade!

  11. Hi Everyone,
    I want to thank those of you who have sent me mail art!!! I wanted to let you know that I am in Houston and I have a flooded house and so have not been reciprocating!!! I am very sorry for this. Hopefully by the beginning of the new year I will get back on track into a more normal life... In the meantime, I just wanted to let the group know and apologize for my lack of response...
    thanks,
    Susan Engleman

    1. So sorry! Hugs . . . and more hugs!

      [If you or other families you know still need help "mucking," consider enlisting the all-volunteer, yellow-shirted Mormon Helping Hands crews. Google that for local (Houston) info. www.justserve.org is also a good way to look for volunteer help, with Harvey issues, and beyond.]

  13. Hello Fellow Artists,

    It's been a few years since I've been a part of the mail art, ATC and JAMS community and I can hardly wait to get going again! I truly love alls meduims of Art, but love the concept and convenience of ATCS, along with the excitement of getting the mail and not knowing what kind of phenomenal artwork is waiting for you from fellow artists from all over the world! I have truly missed being a part of the group and participating in different swaps, as well as swapping with members, one on one. So, I am open to all types of mail and will always return the favor! Anyone who sends me mail will always get mail back in return. That being said, feel free to send me mail anytime, as I am always looking to trade artwork with fellow artists! Thanks for your time and I look forward to swapping with all of you in the near future!
