A Day To Remember 9-11-01

A day that changed the world...

In honor of all affected by that day, my mom, my niece and I made the following envelopes as part of 
the Remember September Mail Art Memorial Project.  You can read all about it by clicking HERE.
Above is the one my mom, Myrna, created.

Above is the one my niece Piper, who is 11, created.

And, above is my decorated envelope.

My friend Debbie, is the one who originally told me about this mail art project.  She participates each year and you can see her envelope for this year on her blog by clicking HERE.

Thanks for taking a look at my blog.

Remember September

For several years I've participated in a Remember September Mail Art Memorial.  Last year my mom, Myrna, and my niece, Piper, contributed art also for a three generation participation.  Here's what we sent last year:

Above is Piper's, below is my mom's, and then mine.
My mom and I are going to Piper's for pizza with her folks and brother's later today.  We are going to make another set of three generations of Remember September Mail Art.
Pictures to follow in my next post.
Since September 11th falls on Sunday this year you can mail an envelope today or Monday.
So, there is still time to take part.
You can see lot's of great mail art as well as learn all about the project HERE
