The theme for April Mail Art 2024 is:

Geometric Shapes
Circles and squares and triangles. Something, anything using your favorite shape(s). Or explore new ones. Now, what is a parallelogram, again? Maybe carve a soap bar diamond, explore paper piecing octagons, paint a hex sign in hexagons. The possibilities are geometrically exponential (brain teaser).

If this is your first time signing up for Mail Art, please visit the topic Farmgirl Mail Art to read our guidelines, https://www.maryjanesfarm.org/snitz/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=83588&whichpage=1

For April 2024 Mail Art, please leave a comment on this thread stating you'd like to join in.

Sign-up is available through March 15th. If your comment appears after you've posted it, that means you're on the roster.

I’ll send an email with your partner to you by March 19th. Please send your Mail Art before APRIL 30th, and be sure to include enough postage for your Mail Art to reach its destination.

Please post a comment on this thread once you receive your mail art to let your sender know you've received her art. If you can add a picture, we’d love to see your mail art!

If you have any questions or concerns, please send us an email, farmgirlsisterhood@maryjanesfarm.org. We're happy to help.

Happy mail art creating!

I have a question, this is my first time I have done the mail art swap. Are we suppose to keep our partners a secret until we send her mail art to her? Thank you.

Ugh! Sometimes I hate technology! Try to send a message via my phone to the forum and everything disappeared.
Maryjane, our Wi-Fi is out, so I’m using my phone. Unfortunately, my email address that you sent the message to who my swap partner is, is not linked to my phone. But I did get your message and I do know who my partner is. As soon as we establish our Wi-Fi back, I will send you an email.
Got a love technology! Thank goodness there’s plenty of wine to get me through this! Ha ha ha!

Oh good stars! I was going to call our Wi-Fi provider, and walked over to the little black box, and noticed the lights were on again. So I checked my computer, and Yep Wi-Fi is now back on.
A Robin must have flown by our Wi-Fi dish thingy and disrupted our Wi-Fi service! Ha ha ha. Gotta love life in the country.!!

Debbie, I don't see why it needs to be kept a secret. I contemplated typing the paired partners here instead of emailing everyone separately. We'll know soon enough once you post a thank you or a photo.

Let me just say that my partner is mrssarahhall, farmgirl sister #5223!!!!!

Here are the beautiful geometric shape pieces that Grace made. Aren’t they all wonderful? She did not miss a shape at all I think. I can not wait to hang the banner. Thank you so very much Grace, I love it all!

Heeheehee! I could not resist all the fun shapes!
Squares, triangles, circles, hexagon,… Where does one begin, where does one end?.
Thank you Debbie for being my partner. Hope you enjoy your goodies.
The red and blue circles, I found at a thrift, and could not resist sending it to you..


The banner was the art craft… I just got carried away… Also the yo-yos represent circles and you know me,, Yo-yo Queen! lol!

Whoot Whoot! Guess what arrived at my door today…
Artwork by Debbie!






OMGEEPERS! Luv the hanging Hexagon pyramid!
I am not talented when it comes to paper craft or painting… so for me to receive this pyramid is a delight!
And , the Gnome and flamingo… so me!

2 questions, did you hand stamp the ribbon with the words???
and, the button’.. did you make it???

Thank you so very much Debbie, I luv my goodies,,, I think I am going to hang the pyramid in my kitchen window for now… so when I poor my cup of coffee first thing in the morning, the lovely words will be my motivation for the day.
