Vinyl Junkie

I LOVE the feeling of purchasing new vinyl, opening it, devouring it cover-to-cover and painting my room with noise from Side A to finish, as intended. It’s like tapping into my personal portal of emotions, inspirations and beauty that can only be accessed when I listen to a record. It’s like a drug that heals me and gives me strength. Kind of like a super power. A super power to create art, grow and become my dream.

This is why I buy music. Real hold-in-your-hands music. Vinyl preferably, but a CD will do.

I originally started writing this post for one reason; The Sound Awake (my husbands) band is releasing their latest album on vinyl and CD! I am so excited for him and want to find any way possible to get the word out. Please help spread the word and if you want dibs on some free stuff like Original Artwork Vinyl (created by me and a few other artist), House Shows (that’s right, they will come and play your house show!),hand written lyrics and more. Click on the video to the right to watch as The Sound Awake explains their campaign and gives you a taste of their sound.

Mail Art Project with Hazel Wonderland

Don’t you LOVE the feeling of going to the mailbox and finding a package just for you?! I definitely do.
I also love to trade with other artists, like my friend Marie. She made me an origami square in trade for a hair cut.

After being intrigued and inspired by other artists doing Mail Art…

I have decided to start my own Project.
So, here are the details:
What is Mail Art:
Mail Art is a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960s and involves sending visual art (but also music, sound art, poetry, etc.) through the international postal system. Mail Art is also known as Postal Art or Correspondence Art. The term networking is often used to describe Mail Art activities, based on the principles of barter and equal one-to-one collaboration.
To learn more about the super cool history of Mail Art, click here.
How it works:
– Email me your address to hazelwonderlandstudio@gmail.com .
– I then save your address in my little black book and mail you an original piece of Mail Art. You may even receive other fun FREE stuff in the future!
– I create a one-of-a-kind package and ship it to you.
– You receive it, you love it, you enjoy it and you keep it!
– In return, you send Mail Art back to me. No pressure, purchase or artistic talent needed.
Why am I doing this:
To meet, collaborate, create, inspire and network with people from all over the world like you!
If I receive Mail Art, I will share it with the world (facebook, twitter, blog and/or more)! In return you may do the same with the helpful links and names below and/or by posting a photo of your Mail Art package from Hazel Wonderland, remember to tag me!

Hazel Wonderland

Two weeks ago, I opened up a new Etsy shop, specializing in custom calligraphy, artwork and design for weddings and businesses.

I have already had over 20 orders and more than 100 inquiries. I am currently designing a logo for See Green, a beautiful and talented jewelry maker in Ithaca, check her out: http://www.seegreen.etsy.com/.

Oh, and a few more things since my last post: I joined a band, officially became Meredith C. Bullock and I got a new camera!
