Check out the TangleCrafts Etsy Store for newly added items!
First up is a brand new & revamped version of the Post Post Post Club – not only does it include a brand new issue of the Meta Mail Art Zine (available exclusively to club members), but you will also receive a membership card (entitling you to free gifts with future orders); a postmark address book, with PPP-exclusive mailing labels; plus exclusive mail art postcards to play with. See the Etsy listings for full details & additional photos. There are lots of different elements involved with each club package, so I will only be making limited memberships available at a time, so that I can keep on top of putting them all together.
And if you’re up for some mail art but fancy something a little bit different, why not enter into employment with the Local Post of Tangledom, as a Travelling Post Officer? The Post Officer’s Companion will tell you all you need to know, and comes complete with a sample booklet of TangleStamps, a Travelling Post rubber stamp for cancellations, and a DIY TangleStamp kit for your own unique mulberry paper artistamp creations.
And remember – Christmas is coming! I can’t make any promises, as we all know that the postal services at this time of year can be unreliable, to say the least, but if you place your order before the end of November, I will do my best to have your order reach you before Christmas. The earlier you can order the better, though! Don’t forget, you will receive a free mini-zine with any order placed before the end of November!
Have you joined the TangleClub yet? If not, click here for all the different options! Alternatively, spend $10 or more on anything else in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store and receive a Basic Membership Package absolutely FREE!
For existing members your club-exclusive freebie for October awaits you! This month, you can print your very own ‘Ideas Grow’ mini-zine notebook, perfect for tucking in your pocket, and can be used to design your own comic rather than take notes, if you prefer! Click on over to the TangleClub Archive for full details. 🙂
Another exclusive offer for existing TangleClub members:
Place an order anytime throughout October and receive a First Day Cover postcard of the latest TangleStamp! The design is called ‘Star of Daphne’ and is derived from a hand-carved block print. The postcard also tells you the story behind the Star of Daphne, an element of Tangledom’s unique folklore.
As the Going Postal project draws to a close (end August),
the Friends and Faux project is still barely in its infancy! For this project, I am sending out postcards, stamped by the Local Post of Tangledom, and asking recipients to add their own faux postage stamp to the cad – then pass it on. There is space on each postcard for 8 artistamps, which once full – I hope! – will return home to me, so I can document their journey. Anyone who adds an artistamp to one of the (numbered) project postcards and sends a scan/photo to me of their contribution before mailing it onward will receive a free copy of…whatever zine emerges, once the project ends…!

So far, only 34 numbered Friends & Faux postcards are ‘out there’ in the world! I have been logging their journeys here. But I will be sending out a new batch soon. Would you like to take part? Just drop me a line with your name and postal address and a new postcard will be logged to meander in your direction. Have you requested a postcard previously and not received it? Please get in touch again & I will send you a new postcard.
Friends and Faux Postcard #1 (shown below) is the best-travelled so far, having reached (and been despatched from?) it’s 4th destination. Sadly, I have lost the scan I was sent by recipient #2, but here is how it looked after its first stop:
Can’t wait to see how different it looks if/when it makes it home!
And here are a couple more postcards-in-progress, currently wending their way around the world… As you can see, anything goes, in terms of style & embellishment. For the sake of uniformity, I used the same TangleStamp to start each card (although I might now begin varying which I use), but the postmark design already shows 2 variations, and the next batch will show my most recent acquisition/variation. But just a note, you do not have to have your own postcard stamp to play this game! It’s all about the artistamps:
