Frieder Speck sends a spooky one

What do you think it is? 

He wrote that it is a bat and asked if I could find it. I had to admit I see only pieces of bat, and he has left me to ponder the secret of this piece, as he is wont to do. Very beautiful envelope, too, which Frieder is famous for: …

Two Greats from Carina Granlund and Theresa Williams

These are so late to blogging, as I got behind (again), that we have seen them several times now, and in better shape than my scanner sometimes handles art. But I loved receiving this POSITIVE yes envelope from Carina and the intriguing enclosure: 

(Scanner freaks out at transparent neon, darn it.)…

Beautiful art from Diane Keys, including DKult trashbook

This piece was a thrill to find in the envelope--colors, text, use of paint, all aspects of Diane's work that I love: 

There are some DKult lessons in the beauteous trashbook below, including topics such as cooperation, courtesy, all the things in which I'm terribly deficient, so it's great that Diane…

Lovely card from Lynn Radford

Lynn writes that she is fond of repurposing the beautiful packaging from consumer goods, and this piece includes "Tim Holtz and the art from a reproduction ad calendar." This is very nice, thanks so much, Lynn…

Vispo Series from NBS

There MUST Have Been a Sale on Blue Paint in Greece!

In the most JOYOUS OF WAYS possible, Katerina Nikoltsou of Thessaloniki fame has let the tide of BLUE PAINT flood the postal systems around the world and the happy mailboxes of IUOMA members.  My face crinkles in a wider smile every time a see one of her white and blue-edge stiped envelopes in the mail box, and her trademark "BLUE" and "MAIL" and "ART" carved rubber stamps proudly announcing the theme of the envelopes' contents (all with their own variations: "Zalop"; Trashpo"; etc.).  I can…
