Lessans on PolymerClayDaily.com

Maryland’s Carol Lessans prefers to receive her mail in style. Her first polymer-covered USPS box lasted four years in rain, sleet and snow.

The time for replacement coincided with Carol’s first class with Lynne Ann Schwarzenberg last June. “My first flower morphed into a summer-long study and resulted in a garden of blooms. But where to plant this garden,” Carol wondered. She used slices of her flowers to cover a new box and in the process, she and Lynne Ann became great friends. 

People often ask how long polymer will survive outdoors. The answer is complicated and sort of beside the point. Maybe a better question is, “How many smiles, questions, photographs, friendships and memories does a polymer mailbox produce?”

Consider adding some polymer blooms outdoors this spring. Have a happy weekend.

    What a simply wonder-ful mailbox Carol has created! Certainly brings cheer no matter what the weather. And yes, Lynne Ann’s flower designs can become addictive. Thanks so much for sharing.
