A couple Iowa releases

The last of my cheesy hula girl cards was left on a counter display for discovery at the Yellow Bird Quilt Shop in Lansing Iowa. I gave another ATC to someone who attended the storytelling retreat I was hosting there, so that one wasn't exactly found art.

Another controlled release

Not exactly Found Art, but I created these ATCs using a photo taken last winter of many of my friends serving with me on the Board of Northlands Storytelling Network. These people have been very supportive of me at times of extreme distress and I wanted to show my appreciation of this at our last Board meeting.

So, like it or not, they all got one of these! Thanks, guys!

Releases outside my area

I just returned from traveling for three weeks in the UK. Along the way, I set out one ATC to be found at O'Hare, one at a hotel in Dungarvin Ireland and another at the Golden Lion Hotel in Stirling Scotland. Hope whoever finds these enjoys these little gifts from Wisconsin.

Geocaching--a new twist to Found Art!

My husband and I, both way too independent for our own good at times, have started geocaching as a shared activity. Today we hunted down a couple of close ones near the local airport, and I left a mushroom card at this cache, and a cheesy hula girl card at the Spillway Special just down the road from the first. They are a great item to place in even small containers, and I'm hoping that since geocachers are busy logging their finds, they might take the extra step to come here, too.

I hope. If you found either of them, I hope you enjoy them.

Another mushroom heads out into the cosmos

Waiting for my son to finish work at the mall, I left another mushroom card on one of the tables in the Food Court. A man returned it to me, but I still managed to leave it on a different table. I hope someone enjoys it!

A couple more pieces set free!

I gave blood today. Literally. I'd run to the post office to mail some packages, saw the flyer on the announcement board and realized I still had time to get in. After being drained of a pint of blood, I left a Woodpecker ATC for someone to find.

A little later, after Friday fish, I left one on the table. This one was the last of the mushroom cards. In a droll little "found art" story, we'd run into a former coworker of mine and got into conversation about the fact he'd turned in his notice of retirement from teaching after 32 years this morning. During the time we stood and chatted, the waitress caught me to return my card. I just smiled, handed it back and said, "Nope, that's for you!"

A little cheesecake for dessert!

Tucked one of these in the payment folder after we finished our delicious meal at Manny's Restaurant tonight. Don't know if the waitress, the cashier or someone else got her, but when the change came back, she was gone!


A mushroom at the bank

While taking care of my banking business, I surreptitiously placed one of the remaining mushroom cards on the counter. Hope someone finds it and enjoys this little surprise! Even better would be hearing from someone who's found some of these.
