I want to have words that describe how amazingly perfect and perfectly me this mail art from David is…but I don’t have the words that will do it justice. Here is what I can say…. This absolutely perfect piece of mail art features…my love, the vintage couch! Wait… there is more….with three hilarious illustrated couch rides! But wait….there’s more! Vintage newspaper article…Chicago Daily News re: a WGN radio commentator plans to retire at 35 in Arizona! Why is this so perfectly me??? I grew up…Continue
My very first mail art from John Bennett, what a wonderful surprise, together with his Vispo #2 pages he sent some wonderful little boekies with pictures and poems (and creatures!)...…Continue

There were THREE artful pieces in this envelope...…Continue
Obsessive-Bar-Code-Syndrome: OBCS? Or BCD = Bar Code disease? Or, fantastic art!
'Tis a beauty , even though it got a bit chewed up by the postal machine...
...that happens when you don't use an envelope! (Ahem)
Unusual experience yesterday, opening the mailbox to one (1) priceless envelope resting there. No bills, no direct mail, nothing but this one envelope. Apologies for the drama, see for yourself. Painted and collaged page from a book. Enough said. Thank you Nancy. Really, really like this.…Continue
It was so good to hear from Lesley and I love this print she did on a doilie. The message was written in a circle on the back. The face is sad and I would imagine this is a reflection of the difficulties she is experiencing at this time. So glad things are better though. Thank you…Continue
One of the best envelopes I have ever received. What an amazing idea to send this. the letter was tucked inside:Continue
Received this great laminated piece from Austin.The wine label qualifies it as trashpo. It is my first art from him and I love the composition.He titled it "Crazy Mary" referring to the Pearl Jam song.I'm a huge fan of grunge rock so thank you Austin!!
I received mail from Thom Courcelle and Ruud Janssen in the same week. They seem tied together in some way – so Thom – your work has informed the meaning I have ascribed to Ruud’s new FLUXUS word.
Time is short, soon there will be ZALOP of it left. Use every minute wisely – its an un-renewable resource.
Thank you for the accompanying note…Continue
I was amazed when I received this piece by Karen. I don't remember seeing anything similar on the blogs, it looks like a completely new turn for Karen. She has framed the text with thick brush strokes of various colors, sometimes blending into each other, sometimes not. The textures are also quite remarkable, I hope one can see it on the picture. And I forgot to…Continue
Who knew one could do such wonders with rolled-up paper? This is a very creative card from Torma Cauli. I love the way he worked with picture and paper to create a three dimensional story (including the envelope). Great card, thank you Torma!…Continue

My first barcode postcard from Dean! And I have to say it's great to see it "for real". I don't know why but the golden parts didn't come out at all on the photo, so you'll just have to imagine they are there. I can see why you are saying that barcodes are human too, Dean :-))) there is a certain energy to them that pertains to human life. But above all, they…Continue
DK is sending me this doll (about 2cm thick), I can only imagine the puzzled and amused expression on the postman's face on both continents. It looks indeed like she could use a coat of some kind, I was thinking that Thom could knit something for her. Actually, on closer inspection, she almost caught enough hair during the trip (or before) to start a fur coat,…Continue
