I think this envelope got returned to Frieder, because it was included in another envelope and they both had cancellation marks. It's a beauty. And I love the stamps on the back as well.

Someone else who constantly amazing me by the diversity of art styles that she explores... Cerjul Viviana Marie from Argentina recently sent me this multi-dimensional-layered art piece, sent in a clear plastic/cello envelope, it had the effect of stained glass!!…Continue
I'm continually impressed and inspired by Nadine's character studies... her latest gift to me was no exception:
Nadine admirably finds reason to detail the people and characters that she comes in contact with or with whom she interacts on a…Continue
Spring FIBER ART SEASON is upon us. There have been some quilting league upsets, some sewing machine contract trade-ups, some promising rookie youths entering the fray... But Boo Cartledge--a hometown favorite--will always make the team!!
On this fiber mail art piece by Boo, some young feller from the Indiana Braves graces the front--I daresay that this work is hand-stitched!…Continue

Nancy, Yes, you nailed this. It's a NBS abstract expressionist piece and your inspiration is obvious, Katerina of course. And the cobalt blue shimmered through the glassine envelope. Gorgeous. Thanks.

Many of you would laugh to see me sitting here on my sofa, typing this blog, SURROUNDED by mail art in layers and piles on every remaining inch of the upholstery that my butt is not taking up. I wanted to make sure that I had it all nearby as I tried to describe it. I am having to use Nancy Bell Scott's recent invention of the "Blog Jam," which is, I think, an iteration of a tool used by Cheryl Penn in the past, and undoubtedly by others who've been overwhelmed by the blessing of mail art…Continue

This is no ordinary comic strip, when Sarah is on the move it's often embroidery we are speaking about and this is no exception! Unfortunately my scanned picture doesn't really show where the embroidery is, but it's the black around the text and between the strips. Sarah is telling me that this work/comic strip is to be continued.. wonderful! Thanks…
I couldn't be happier with my first last. Here too…Continue

She says "These guys indicated to travel right back to you--couldn't do anything against it." Who knew they'd talk?? I hope they aren't telling SECRETS, Svenja.
My scanner doesn't do this subtle piece justice. The purplish-blue is intense, and surrounded by deep versions of rust color that speak to me in a big way. It…Continue
