Just wondering if anyone at the Art Colony is a mail artist like I am.  I've been involved in mail art for over 30 years now though I can't believe it's been that long.  It has been part of my life since the late 70's but with varying foci... sometimes it's postcards, sometimes it's ATCs and/or Artistamps, sometimes it's hosting mail art shows, sometimes it's via the postal service and lately, more and more people host calls which are electronic submission friendly.  

One of my main things over the years has been stamp carving and printmaking, something which originated in my first exposure to mail artists who carved erasers into stamps.  Nowadays, there are all kinds of materials to carve with and many more kinds of ink and other media for printing.  

If there are other mail artists in the group, I'd love to meet you and possibly trade mail art with you but, also, if there are any people who don't know about mail art or who haven't had the chance to participate in it yet, I'd love to meet you and trade with you as well. :D

If it's something which other people would be interested in, we could have a mail art call just for Art Colony members at some point.
