2022 INFORMAL EXCHANGE SIGN-UP LIST

Hello, hello wonderful mail artists!
WELCOME TO MMSA!
WE ARE GLAD YOU FOUND US!

Interested in a one-on-one mail art exchange?   Check here for names and addresses of others who enjoy swapping handmade post cards or other types of mail art.  Add your name and mailing address at the bottom of the page to introduce yourself!  If you don't feel comfortable posting your mailing address, you might start with a contact email address. 
You may send mail to anyone on the list.  
Be sure to include your return address. 
SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM AND PLEASE ENTER YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION IN A NEW LISTING BELOW.

I WILL ACTIVATE IT AS SOON AS I SEE IT.

MESSAGES, THANKS, INQUIRIES ARE BEST POSTED TO THE MESSAGES/COMMENTS PAGE
(This is very important...)


CHECK THE MESSAGES/COMMENTS PAGE (TAB) for replies to your posting :)



PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE:
Use this page for names/addresses/
introductions only.
This list is a lot easier to read when there are no additional comments.  You can post personal responses or messages to the 
Messages/Comments/Notices page.
Thank you.


Please check there often for responses 

The  "WANNA TRADE?"  page is another place to initiate one-on-one specific themed/media swaps.

This "INFORMAL EXCHANGE" page gets
refreshed at the beginning of each new year.

Unfortunately, I can not guarantee that, if you send art out, you will receive art back, but that is the hope.  You shouldn't have to do this, but - you could indicate whether  your mailing is a "gift" or if you want to exchange art. 
"Hope to hear back from you" is self-explanatory, or,
"Let's swap!"

PLEASE put your return mailing address on every piece of mail 
you send out, in case there is a delivery problem.  
Including your email address allows recipients to let you know they received your mail art.

For INTERNATIONAL SWAPPING:  Indicate the country of 
mail-origin and country to which you are sending mail, 
IN LARGER/BOLD LETTERS to help assure delivery.

I would love deco booklets (art/nice-and-neat).

They are small collaborative, lettermail size, pamphlet-like, handmade booklets. When a person receives a deco booklet they decorate a page then pass it on. When the booklet is full it goes back to the owner.

International welcome. Any stage, new to homer/last page. Lettermail postage size. I prefer them on the small side. Largest about 4"x6". Smallest about 2.5"x3".

I'm an abstract artist; mostly working with mixed media; collage, textures, circles, crazy color combos. I also dabble in embroidery. I'm cool with p.c., ATC, long letters, destashing supplies/swaps, or a quick jot of something random. I'm open to international correspondence as well. I'm on IG @ellenscreativeescape
Take care!

Sorry about the deleted post. We can't edit these and I thought I needed to change the address. Turns out I'm going to be here another year, so it was for nothing anyway. lol

I enjoy exchanging art and contributing to collaborative projects. I like receiving all types of art, but here's what you will receive from me. Most of my art is abstract expressionism made using watercolors and ink. Not always, but usually either 5"x7" or 4"x10". I also make ATCs (artist trading cards). If you want to see examples of my art, I started posting them on Vero as @MadDustKitties or you can view them on the web at https://vero.co/maddustkitties.
I reply to all.

Decorate a page, then pass it on. When the booklet is full it goes back to the owner listed on the deco/collaborative-booklet.

Lettermail. International welcome. Any stage, new to homer/last page. Lettermail postage size. I prefer them small, generally about the size of an ATC. Range of sizes preferred about 2.5"x3" to 4"x6".

Hi, I'm interested in the booklets as well, in particular because this is a work address, since I am away from home for long stretches and roommates might not reliably protect my mail. but I will swap anything. Although without a list I don't quite understand how the booklets work. I guess you select any name?

I would like to swap artworks that look sincere and poetic to someone with an artistic mindset, and yet like highly-skilled nonsense to a laymen.
