The story continues... I just posted at the homage blog quite a few postcards from the mail art show I had not posted up before... so definitely take a look over there if you wish.
Katrina at katrinarecycled.blogspot.com worked on this wonderful card above when she joined us at the communal table on her visit to Open Studio Week and decided she would like to contribute to the Mail Art Show. Children had been earlier drawing seedspods so textas and paper was still sitting there.
Great ambience and conversations... thank you for visiting Katrina!
OK...you must go and see the new mail art submissions... this came all the way form Portland Oregon and is made entirely from seeds. Cathy from www.cathycamper.com is a multi-talented creative person...a published writer, creator of zines, a librarian, seed artist and more!

All week playing on my mind has been the list of thankyous owing to those who contributed in small and large ways to the recent OPEN STUDIO WEEK.
Somehow this event was quite large all considered - and comprehensive, detailed and intense.
This 'recall to mind' meant reliving the days full of activities, the part played by people .... and so far I have written only about the two people I am most indebted to...
You can read post Ive written at the homage blog on why these two amazing people played such an important part in the week long event. Basically there would have been no studio week if it came down to doing it solo! Hopes and plans would have tumbled down this major imput - and I'd have most likely run out of energy by day 3 and put a 'gone fishing' sign on the door!!
children drawing seedpods at the studio - they were so engaged - really taking the observation very seriously...5 years old approximately... and just so delightful!
This was as you can see a very people oriented week... and I cant begin to tell you how much the contributions of others made the series of events work... and well... beyond my wildest hopes!
