The first painted envelope with "Sweet Dream Buddie" arrived with a note saying that a larger one was on its way. Guido also has a very distinctive style, African yet South Oceanic symbolic work.
The second large envelope was rained on so a bit tattered at the edges with the paint smeared, but as Guido said it was a great collaboration with the Rain God..... Thanks for these Guido!…Continue
Karen's distinctive characters with their naive quality never cease to please me. All her cards are painstakingly handdrawn, painted, or printed using so many different techniques, they are wonderful and I am always glad when her envelopes arrive in my postbox. Thanks my friend.…Continue

I only found out very recently about Vaida's work and she has such a refined, elegant style. This piece with a page from Othello, beautiful stitching and ink stamps is a real goodie (and my first mail from Lithuania!). Thank you Vaida!
