  4. KR-I have never created art on Rolodex cards but I'd love to give it a try. And in turn, swap finished cards with you. I just scored some vintage office supplies at a yard sale that I'd like to share with you for your stash if you're interested. Email me and lets swap addresses.

    1. San, are you interested in swapping completed artwork with MMSA readers, or only the paper supplies for artwork?

      Delete
    2. Thanks for asking, it depends if MMSA draws a line between arts & crafts. I do have a lot of crafts with recycled materials. I make my own marbled paper, book covers with fabrics, painting & drawing is not my strong side. So I won't call my creation artwork.I would happy to swap either completed crafts or supplies.

  20. Hi everyone!

    I am looking for some new friends who would like to exchange ephemera!

    I love to use all different kinds of papers (book pages, maps, napkins, tissue paper, newspaper clippings, painted papers, old magazines, envelopes, playing cards, the list could go on and on..!), small found objects, stuff from the back of the junk drawer, found on the street, small broken and discarded toys, I also love old black and white photos - I'm pretty much willing to try to make art with just about anything!

  22. Hi there! I have been a member of this community off-and-on for several years and was so inspired by this movement of Mail Art that I brought it into my programming at work. I wanted to pass along this call for volunteers/mail art exchange with the older adult residents I work with in a continuum care facility in Chicago. Please read our mission statement and consider exchanging with one of our amazing residents!

    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!

    Thank you! :)

    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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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!

  34. 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,

      [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.]

  36. 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!
