Mood Monday – Making…Collage into Mail

19 Flares 19 Flares ×

I spend the weekend making mail, getting a whole bunch of swaps done, mail to send to friends and other delicious goodies.  Getting back to just collage, just for fun, non-lineal making of the best kind.  Mind wandering down the lane while the hands were busy with glue and tape…No deadlines, no commitments, except to dear friends I have been neglecting in my busyness…thinking of them as I create, what they send me what I send back and so on and so on.  Mood Monday – making just for the sake of it.

What’s you mood today? As always you can click on the photos to make them larger.  Happy day.


  1. My mood has been pretty good all weekend. Saturday was hiking with hubby up and down the hills and today (Sunday) we went to Apple Hill and had cider and apple donuts and walked around all the craft tents…….so , so nice….So my mood? Deliciously , wonderfully , contentedly tired…… 🙂 Hugs! deb

  2. Reckon some lucky recipients will be very happy.

  3. My mood today is “inspired”. Spent the weekend with paint covered hands.

  4. Love your collages! My mood is pretty upbeat. I got lots done, this weekend, and looking forward to being with the girls. Sophia is having a Halloween party at her preschool on Wed., and we’re all invited. That will be fun and I’m taking Sophia and her sister to the nursing home, tomorrow, dressed in their costumes to visit my mother. Sophia is going to be the “Wicked Witch of the West” – she goes around saying “and your little dog, too” 🙂 Olivia will be a lady bug!

    I pictured you smiling while creating these fabulous collages! You’re terrific and inspiring always!

    Cold weather is here – but I can deal 🙂 xxoo

  5. Clara is my favorite! sometimes I get so aggravated with our politicians I feel like my hair is standing out like hers!

  6. I am inspired this morning by both the crispness of the morning air and by your creating with a total lack of inhibition or restraint! I agree, Corrine, it is creating without a purpose, without a goal, without reaching for an outcome, that is the best of the best! I like all your collages today, but it is Clara who speaks to me this morning!

  7. Now, that sounds like a perfect weekend to me… no pressure.. just art and fun. The lucky ones who will get your mail will be so thrilled. Mondays.. ugh.. work, but it’s all good.

  8. cutting, gluing, and scribbling – what could be more freeing. Love your collages and the recipients will too! Happy Monday! xo

  9. My mood today is cozy. We are having a wind storm here in Las Vegas. Perfect day to create in the coziness of a warm home. I love your collage.

  10. Oh how wonderful that you are in your creative space…loving your colorful whimsy here and well…my mood is lazy and peaceful today.


  11. There must be something in the air. I spent all weekend making, making, making mail art galore. It’s so fun to get in the zone and just make for the pleasure of it…..some were elaborate and filled with paper bits and ribbon and some were so simple -just 3 or 4 elements. All in the mail today. Yahoo!

  12. It sounds so cozy, and calming, creating like that for friends, and the collaging with lovely papers and tape, and such, is alwayes making my thoughts wander, too!!
    They are wonderful, Corrine.

  13. Gorgeous makes Corrine, nothing better than a bit of collage to free the soul hey. Sooooooo good to see the fun.
    Huge hugs x x x x

  14. I’m really liking orange now.
    So the birds in orange background is very peaceful.

  15. LOVE Clare’s hair 🙂
    I am in a collage kind of mood….the best of moods I think!
    When the little bits of everything come together to say something bigger.

  16. Love Clara’s do ! That made me smile. It is actually Tuesday as I read this. My mood is pretty good today. Making empty spaces in the studio that I am sure will be filled up again in no time but are much needed to move forward.
    Hope your week is sweet !

  17. Lovely work. Nothing nicer than sticky, painty fingers and seing the resuts of what you’ve done! Have fun, Valerie

  18. I agree with Valerie – nothing better than just for fun collage… wish I could pop over and play along!

  19. Hi Corrine! I was thrilled to be the recipient of Clara the Mind Melder for the MMSA superhero swap! I love her and the note on the back! So happy to have found your blog, love your art. Thanks for swapping – I’m a newbie and you have inspired me.
