Magic Mailbox: I've Got Mailart!

On my way home from picking my husband up from the ER the other day, I stopped at the post office and this beautiful envelope was waiting for me: 


Isn't it gorgeous? It was full of goodies from Roben-Marie Smith! I am going to put it up on the inspiration board behind my desk so I can see it every time I sit there to work.

Roben-Marie has taken her beautiful work and turned it into collage (left) and sticker sheets (right). These are destined to find their way into my art journals. The colours and textures are so delicious!


She has also made these delightful postcards! Roben-Marie has two online stores if you'd like to order some artsy goodness for yourself. There's her Etsy shop (which for right now is on vacation, but be sure to add it to your favourites so you can find it later when she resumes business) and there's her Paperbag Studios shop where she has a whole host of rubber that is perfect for art journalling.

She also has some really cool online workshops. My friend Greta has been taking You've Got Mailart and recently sent me this envelope she'd made in class. I hope to take this one in the near future-it looks like it would be really fun and inspiring. She is one exceptionally talented woman!

THANK YOU Roben-Marie for your perfectly timed gift. It arrived on a day when I most needed some mailart love. You are extremely generous and I am deeply appreciative of your kindness.

Now I want to sit down and play with paint!
