Postmarked 2011 – prison library project

This is my third year participating in this project. All they ask is that you send them mail at the following address:

Postmarked 2011
Prison Library Project
112 Harvard #303
Claremont, CA 91711


What’s nice, though is that you can paint, color, paste, use any media you want, and as long as the address is on the front, it will go. I will end up sending them some illustrated envelopes, but I also like the challenge of sending them something a bit larger. Like a 1/4 sheet of watercolor paper with a stamp on it. I guess here is the before picture:

This is 11″x14″ on 300 pound watercolor paper. It will be raffled off in June, all proceeds to the Claremont Forum’s Prison Library Project, which sends books free to prisoners in the U.S.

So anyway, after they get your mail (envelope, postcard, art project) they display it on their blog. Then in June, they have a big exposition and they raffle the pieces off! All proceeds go to charity, providing books for prisoners. You have plenty of time! get started, and share with me your entries. Stay tuned for more of my entries.

    Nice Pansies, sweetie.
