Enough about that. Now, on to the good deed and the fun! Isn't that the most adorable little post office EVER?? It is in Rupert, Vermont and it is in danger of becoming a victim of the USPS cut-backs. Jane Davies of Jane Davies Studios owns the little post office and she is trying to increase the volume of mail that is processed there to ensure the future of the little post office and the post mistress's job.
Here is where you come in. Jane has has put out a call for mail art. She will post pictures of all the post cards on her blog and has graciously offered to respond to the first 200 with a card, made by her, in return. How fun is that, make some art, make a new friend, and all for a good cause! The address is: Jane Davies, PO Box 45, Rupert, VT 05768. You can read more about it here, plus there is a great little video about the chickens at the post office. That link goes to the post about her call for mail art. Be sure to check out the more recent posts because she is already starting to show the results coming in.
Thanks to Cathy at ma vie trouvee for the heads-up about this!
