At last, my mail art for you, using some of the "Scrap Starter Kit" you sent me from cleaning out your studio, is ready for the post office tomorrow. I am delighted with your poems, your fabulously printed on envelopes and the scraps you sent me. And before I got this one out to you another one from you came with such wonderful fish headed portraits. I'm so curious about how you create all of these with such a sense of humor. Your mail art is amazing me and making me smile.
Yikes! I was catching up on sending mail art and came across your delightful postcard and the envelope I started to mail you way back in October. So with embarrassment I am getting it all together to take to the post office and finally send to you, sling with sending you a friend request via IUOMA. See you in the mail at last!

I am used to my father's Teutonic surname getting messed...I grew up in Asia, where everybody just assumed I could not write my own name properly, and that what I really wanted to write was Natalie CHING. :)
