Several mail art projects are always in the works.
I enjoy this process tremendously since it is so darn
fun to do. No rules, using whatever is at hand,
recycling a mix of materials and meeting the most
wonderful people who enjoy this mail art as much
as I do.
I finished side two of the cereal box mailer…
With some leftover
scrap book paper, some wrapping paper
from my neighbor that must be at least 30 years old and
If anyone has not tried the eco stapler,
it is great for small amounts of paper.
No metal, just punches a hole and flips
the tab over into a slit. I like to use it in the office,
for things I have to keep,
makes me feel a little greener!
A little bye bye tour of Chicago to round
out this trip. One more shot of Millenium Park’s
2 story water fountain designed for the kids to play
in with lights and video of multicultural faces.
We were fortunate to stay in a hotel with a view
of the river, on the 11th floor, and I was able
to get some fabulous shots through the window
without too much glare. I love the river, and
if you get to visit Chicago, take the Architectural
River Boat Tour, it give a great history of the
buildings on the river including this one,
Marina City by architect Bertrand Goldberg.
A mixed use building with condos on top with
jetson like balconies. I expect little flying
cars to leave it at any moment.
and cool yellow water
taxis move on the water
all day long.
the new Trump Tower
hotel and condos and the
big Black Hawks sign
draping the building next door.
Two million people were in
the city for the parade less than a block
from our hotel an hour before we
arrived. Luckily most of them
had dispersed before we got there
and the streets were cleaned of
confetti before I could even believe
it. Everything is big in Chicago.
This little fellow(and some chocolates)
were waiting for us one evening when we returned.
Such a sweet touch. I had to take his photo…..
In the blink of an eye….bye bye Chicago 2010.
