my REAL wall at the Centre Pompidou in Paris

my REAL wall at the Centre Pompidou in Paris

This weekend me and Elena went to Paris. I imagine that most of you reading would be thinking that that’s a lovely thing for me to do on the weekend after Valentines day, and yes I guess that as newlywed husband and wife it was pretty nice, but the truth is, we went for something entirely different than romance.

We went for postcards.

Yes, hard as it may seem to believe, this weekend we went to Paris to meet Mim and her husband Chuck, who have been living in Paris for the last 2 months. Mim is a Mailart365 artist, and one of the first past the line, and is also a good friend from the early days of my REAL wall. We’ve been mailing for more than 3 years so it’s like meeting an old friend.

Also on the trip with us was Positively Postal, who helped put these postcards up on a windy Saturday afternoon in Paris.

The other lovely mailartist we met was the lovely and prolific Dean Marks, who is Paris-based, and works mainly with barcodes. And everything else he can get his hands on.

We spent Saturday discovering Paris and Sunday making mailart together and I finally got to make REAL walls with other mailartists. It was great!

A wonderful time was had by all, and it just goes to show that meeting for REAL and putting stuff on REAL walls will always beast that virtual rubbish!

    • It was really fun to take! Straight after I took the photo the wind blew all the postcards all over the place and me, Elena and Scott had to chase after them all! Wish you could have been there it was a great weekend away!
