Late summer is here, fellow farmgirls, and I'm hoping you all get to soak in these last moments of sun-kissed warmth before autumn sets in.

If this is your first time signing up for Mail Art, please visit the topic Farmgirl Mail Art to read our guidelines.

FOR SEPTEMBER Mail Art, please leave a comment on this thread stating you'd like to join in. Sign-up is available through AUGUST 25th. If your comment appears after you've posted it, that means you're on the roster.

The theme for this month is "Neighbors Near and Far". Show us Autumn where you live, introduce us to you and your area, share with us your state bird, your state gem, your state flower, or some scenery you find peace in, that you call home. Let your creativity shine! Thank you Angie for the theme inspiration for this month.

I will send an email with your partner to you on AUGUST 26th. Please send your Mail Art before SEPTEMBER 30th. And be sure to include enough postage for your Mail Art to reach its destination.

I'd like to request that everyone post a comment on this thread once you receive your mail art to let your sender know you've received their art. If you can add a picture, that's always nice too!

If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to send me an email. I'm always happy to help out in any way I can.

Happy Arting and warmest farmgal wishes,

~Cydnie

Angie, Iím glad you received it ok. I didnít see this until now. I hope you enjoy the buckeyes, theyíre very tasty, as long as you like peanut butter and chocolate. And who doesnít. Iím glad you like the little book, I had fun making it. I was so excited when I found out you were from Avon. So you used to live in Ohio too? What a coincidence! There are Farmgirls and wishful Farmgirls everywhere.

A hopeful Farmgirl, Pam

And a sweet little cardinal )state bird) that Ohio traditions says I must hang in my Christmas Tree and a box of buckeyes! They look delicious. Now, I had forgotten to update my address on the forum. So Pam's package went to my old address (4 years old!) Buy Cydnie and Pam got it to me here in FL. What makes me smile though is that Pam is originally from Rochester NY, (now lives in OH)which is only about 20 miles from my old address. And......she is from the same town (Henrietta) as my husband!! So, this is a fun story with a happy ending. Thank-you Pam for lots of smiles.

Terri- I graduated HS in 84 so that was the last time I lived there. Been back for the occasional wedding early on, but not been back in......20ish years??? When I was on FB, was a part of a local group for Wheeling. Certainly seemed like a lot has indeed changed. Miss it tho!!!!!!!

D, So glad you liked it. I was in Wheeling after school yesterday picking up supplies for the next swaps I am involved in. When wereyou up here? I have a feeling it may have changed a bit since your last visit. It is a good place to find stuff for sure.
Have a great day.
Hugs from Ohio.

Terri! Thank you so very much for the mail art!

I'm sitting here working away (admittedly it was such a beautiful day I took my work to the back porch!), and the mail chic pulls up with a cool looking package!

I loved your perspective on Ohio - it DOES have many beauties. I did not grow up too far from you (Wheeling, WV), and so love the buckeye (both kinds!!) and the sassafras leaves. The cardinal is a lovely charm. I've been told that cardinals are messengers from those who have gone before us, and hold a special place in my heart. It's now a permanent addition to my workspace!


Thank you for being so thoughtful and creative.

Farmgirl hugs!!

In laughter & hope,

dear farmgirl who is mailing to me. I am SO SORRY that my old address was still on file at the farm. I moved four years ago and at that time was not back on the forum. Cydnie let me know that she is working on it. I feel really bad. Please forgive my oversight. Angie

Joanne,

Thank you so much for my beautiful pin and post cards! It was so exciting getting this in the mail and reading more about where you live and the type of things you do to enjoy fall. I live in MS so like you, it doesn't really feel like fall until Nov. We usually crank up the AC and watch fun fall like movies. Usually by the time the cooler temps arrive, everyone is gearing up for Christmas, so I make it a point to enjoy fall time as much as possible between Halloween and Turkey Day :)

Patsy!

Oh my goodness, is your mail art package wonderful! Thank you so very much! It's such a beautiful, heartfelt collection. We are very similar in what we like and do! I love the photos and notes of your pets, your cattle, very tidy crafting room, clothesline, frozen roses, bluebirds, and all of the beautiful notes you wrote about your life and about life in Texas. And on top of the beautiful booklet, you tucked in wonderfully spiced candles, ribbon, and handy little notebook. Thank you so very much for sending this to me - I just love and cherish everything. I'll get a photo up soon.

Big farmgirl hugs,

Jamie,
I love your Sept Mail Art. Beautiful picture. You know how we Texans love our Bluebonnets.
I torn the wrapping paper a bit before I realized the beautiful back side.
I'm saving it for future projects. Yes, I'm a hoarder for anything in paper crafting.
I put your picture on my 'Favorites' wall. Looks good.
Thank you so much.
Take care and be safe.
Hugs

Well, DH was feelin' poorly from all this dang smoke in the air and didn't get to the Post Office until today, April. Once Karen, our taco truck postal clerk, stopped laughing, she told DH that she would accept it for mail and provide tracking, but there was no way in this wide wide world of sports that she would insure it. Well, I really wasn't going to insure it anyway. So it is on it's way to Central Oregon. I sure hope it arrives in one piece . . . . or I should say -- all together. Have fun . . .
Virtual non-contagious hugs,
jean
