"Hi Carolyn, thanks for the long and interesting letter! I like to hear more about other mail artists and I like your crow! I am teaching art and work as an artist with different papers that I sew and stitch together and embroider special papers on…"
"Hi Bill, Thanks for your fat envelope that arrived yesterday!
I will add something to the booklet, but I think you should join the Add&Pass group! And please don't send booklets with cardboard, that is much too heavy and gets too expensive…"

"Dear Carolyn, I am glad that the envelope arrived unharmed! Sorry that you had so much to do to get the card out of it! I thought the folio rather interesting and I have quite a lot of these transparent images, because I used them with a overhead…"
Good morning Charlotte! It is morning here we have some frost on the ground also today. It is becoming winter, but we still have our farmer's market until Chistmas (indoors now), and we are having warm-ish clear, sunny days. I've been out walking most every afternoon. So much mail to catch up with when I got home! I had a fabulous trip, hanging out with Bettina and Marcel (her husband), and my friend, Roberto came later for x1 week. It was perfect because I had time with my friends alone, time with them all together, two days alone with Roberto, and the last 3-4 days by MYSELF! A dreamy itinerary for me.
Visiting Maria's mail art exhibit in Athens was most inspiring and I feel motivated to plan for a mail art exhibit here in Boise, in 2019. Stay tuned on that. Of course, I would love to see you in the mail again, but it will likely be in 2019. I cannot believe how fast time flies. Meanwhile I send you love and hugs from Idaho. Debra
Hi Charlotte! Yes we did have a wonderful, very hot day together.
I am doing great, busy still - finished with peaches, and now on to the last fruits - pears plums, and apples. I will go to Crete again in two weeks to be with Bettina and her husband Marcel. My friend, Roberto has decided to meet me, for a week of that time. A surprise! I've been working on mail most every day, and still enjoying it very much. Sending love and hugs to you. Debra
