ART is my Quiet Friend

I've been spending some sacred time on mail art lately....I need to have art in my life. Until now it has been most difficult since I had no 'place' to go, to enjoy my friend called "Mail Art". Up until now, every time I wanted to make mail art, or any art for that matter, I had to gather all my supplies, paper, paints, bits and bob's and camp out on the dinning room table and then take it all down just in time for dinner. I'm sure there have been many other's who…

THANK YOU! Mass Blog (Suus In Mokum, ARTLIKEART, Carina Granlund, Dean Marks, Stephanie Blake, Guido Vermeulen, Erica Durante AND Mim Golub Scalin!)

Guido's interpretation of the Belgium flag

This morning I had to do my administration and amongs the blue envelops (tax) and bills I found this wonderful envelop, designed by Guido Vermeulen. It is his interpretation of the Belgium flag. Is it my imagination or do I really see a doggy on the right, cats in front of the red and other creatures studying the flag?

Mail Art with surprises, I love it. Dank je wel,…

The New Alexandrian Library Boekie Collection - Additions - Theresa Williams (USA) - The Ragpicker and Torma Cauli (Hungary)
