Mail Bonding

So a while ago my old pal Jared L. Clark sent me a letter. In this letter was an invitation to participate in an art project of his. He sent all his art friends a piece of paper and asked us to do something with it. . . something artsy. Oh la la. Here is his explanation of the project:

So, now to start blogging the reason i started this blog. Underneath this text you will find a ledger with some of its graphed pages below it. In addition to collecting hundreds of cutting boards and knife blocks i have also collected scrapbooks and ledgers. Since this one has a ring binder which allows removement and replacement of its pages i thought it would be a great thing to send those pages around the country and collect responses to the ledger paper. Since i have sent them to friends, it not only a collaborative art project, but a way to keep in touch. Some participants immediately drew on their paper and sent it, others might take a year. This blog is for the electronic collection of each image as it comes back to me here in Richmond. This way instead of waiting two years to try and get a copy of the finished collection, it will be available to everyone bit by bit here at mail bonding.

It took me a while but I finally sent my piece. I didn't know what I was going to do, but one night while working on a quilt for baby I had an idea . . . so here's the link to Jared's aptly named blog. . . Mail Bonding.

I'm number 13. . . in case you forget who I am.


  1. I love Joe Ostraff's entry. He was my high school art teacher, before he moved on to the B.Y.

    Well well well, if it isn't old Geckers.....

    This is mutual friend pal Tiffany from Provo! I found out about your blog from Allison Lowe and then coincidently found out you know Carina (Azucar)! Why didn't we ever make this connection while we were living in Provo, girls?

    Love this project. Yours is way cute. I like 14 as well.

    You are in NY huh? I am in northern Maryland, like 3 hours south of you. We have friends in NYC, namely mutual pal Scott Handsome (i mean hansen - ha) and a few others. Do you every see him?

    I started a blog about a month ago -

    I had a baby last year. Congrats on your little one. Girl right?

    I'd love to hear from you!

    By the way, I was looking through some of your old posts, (I am loving everything by the way), and I made a music suggestion in an October post called Target: Music to my ears. Just thought I'd let you know...

    Happy listening
