Bonniediva replied to Lynne Larkin's discussion What do you put in Envelope? in the group Ask Anything
"For the New Folks, a good rule of thumb is to send OUT the same as what you have received IN: if you get a post card and a note, send a post card and a note. However, send whatever you like, really. I sometimes send paper scraps, clippings, poems,…"

Ask Anything

There are a lot of basic questions on Mail Art that are often asked and answered. This group might be the first place to look for answers. I will do my best to answer, but hope that other members can help out as well.

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2000
My Website:
http://bonniediva.com
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
I'm from New Orleans, but now live in the wilds of the Midwest!
IUOMA has really kept me working and exploring my art.
Please send me your art, and I will always send you something in return!

Hello, Bonnie!

--I'm going to post photos, but I'm behind on some things and thought I'd go ahead and thank you for the mail. Thank you!

--I read the poem about the seal without reading the title, and I kept anticipating it being about a dolphin :P The lion one is great, too.

--Is the photo your own, or a found photo?

--Also, your envelope gave me the gumption to try making an envelope myself. It's definitely fun to do, and it has opened up possibilities for random stuff that I couldn't figure out what to do with :D

Bonnie, thanks for the fun collage card. I posted under my photos. I know the orientation is not right, but I can't figure out how to post vertical photo without getting squished...
