okay… so I get this email from Pam of 'Pam & Bill' fame
*singsong voice* I can't wait till you get your mail art….I'm so excited I could pee. Oh, TMI? Pam
You see, I actually won TWO contests that Pam threw out there. One was a name this artist contest which I sorta won because in my response post I worded it so that names of other songs by the artist made my entry. However Pam, didn't know anything else this artist did… so she was staring blankly at my response.
The next mini-contest she had was her change from Post Titles to starting with “I am…“. I was declared the overall winner (WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO) on that contest and the reward… MAIL ART.
So, all I had to work with was that Pam's mail art was so cool that she was losing bodily control over it. It arrived sometime while we were in Dallas… but when we got it, well… just take a look:
To describe it, the pictures form a collage on one sheet. The words “My Life” are cut out of the picture collage. Then, very professionally, the whole thing is laminated.

And just to be Terry… I will sign off with this quote from the Lead singer of The Smiths – Because it's a tie-in to the two contests for this mailart!
