Things One Might Choose to Put in an Envelope

This is a small list of things that may fit in an envelope just to get you started thinking about what you might want to mail us (Jocelyn and I). I'll start with the obvious and go from there.

  • letters (about what? to whom? in what language?)
  • poetry
  • photographs (of whom? or what?)
  • newspaper clippings
  • magazine pages
  • band-aids
  • leaves
  • dirt
  • flowers
  • pages ripped from your journal of days you'd rather not remember
  • glitter
  • fingernail clippings (eww. please don't.)
  • hair (see note on fingernail clippings)
  • apple seeds
  • price stickers
  • fabric scraps
  • small-ish bits of art (paintings, drawings, wonder and imagination)
  • recipes
  • money
  • mix cds
  • travel brochures
  • postcards
  • comic strips
  • grocery lists
  • yarn
  • love (how does one fill an envelope with love)
  • the picture you drew of a whimsical oar (I'd like to see it.)
  • knick knacks (flat ones)
  • bits and pieces
  • forgotten things
  • toast
  • a toaster (a flat one. less than an ounce, unless you'd like to add postage.)
  • collages
  • paper clips
  • rubber bands
  • staples
  • other miscellaneous office supplies
  • pictures of mailboxes
A Note: please be classy. This is a community art project, not a chance to be lame by filling your envelope with x-rated materials. Not cool.
