Just a quick post tell share something with all of you. I am working on a top secret project (shh!) and art is coming in via the mail for it. Today I received an envelope and the minute I had it in my hand, my heart sank. It was soaking wet. Somewhere along the line, between Ohio and British Columbia, it was exposed to water. My guess is some mail carrier dropped it in a puddle.
The whole time I was opening it, I was praying hard. I was praying that the person who mailed it took me seriously when I asked that all art be put in a Ziploc bag. Today fate was on my side because as luck would have it, it was indeed sealed up, safe and sound. WHEW!! Thank god! I was dreading the thought of having to email my friend to tell her her work had been ruined. It would have broken my heart and hers too because that art she made was very special.
So folks, my point is this: ZIPLOCS ARE YOUR FRIEND! Buy yourself a couple of boxes in various sizes and always put your artwork, collage ephemera goodies, etc. in one when you mail. You just might be glad you did!
