Last night, the IZM activity was to make envelopes and postcards for this snail mail week.
On July 11, the activity is also to make some mail art. Now since I don’t understand the difference between mail art and making envelopes, postcards and stationaries, I decided to declare July 7 as mail art day and July 11 as the day where I will start the 24-Hour Zine Thing (more on that coming up this week).
I finally ended up just making some envelopes which is good enough for me, mainly because I already made a shitload of stationaries during the DIY month in December, and also because I don’t really like postcards that much. There’s never enough space to write on them. I also made some envelopes during the DIY Month but already sent all of them. So last night, I made five more using colorful construction paper and stickers.
It felt really good to finally be doing something that does not involve use of a computer, and makes a whole lot of mess after the activity is done.
On that note, I am also really excited for tonight. I’ll be making a zine flyer to send out with my mail!
Peace, love and I’ve already got a few penpals, but always looking for more. Interested folks may drop me a line.
