Trashpo books from Diane Keys, Nancy Bell Scott, and vintage from Lesley SA

Perhaps this delicate tissue-paper book from Nancy Bell Scott is more than "trash", it is a wonderful collection of tisse pages and yarn that tantalizes the sense of touch! And many, many thanks for ALL the white tissue paper! Wonderous materials for future boekies!…

Georgia's evolution from birth to mermaid is exquisite. Who would not love to swim among the butterflies? Thanks, Georgia!

Week of premieres: 1. MA of CP-sa

Received my first mail art from the boss!! Loom till dark! Can't decide if it's a poodle in a turtelneck or something much more darker?? 


The reverse side suggests "make strage" - ??  Cheryl, I already had a lot of fun with this wonderful card and the interpretation it implies. I go for the poodle!

Make-an-Erni from the Haptic Werewolf. Will do!

I kid you not: "Have cookie-cutter-will-blog"! 

See, this little guy was in my mail box (well, on the stairs) as I returned home.

If I stuff it with rice crispies and marshmallow mix...will it be cerealism?

The Haptic Werewolf has done a great…

I have received so many amazing Mail Art in the last few months that it kind of overwhelms my senses!  I am still trekking along making art when I can and sending it out to all of you!  However, I will be traveling around for the next few weeks, and though I try to bring my supplies, it takes longer for me to accomplish.  Once again my whimsical nature is sending me in different directions!


Now I am part of a mail chain and I just want some clarification on what I am suppose…

Mail-Art from Marie Wintzer (Japan)

It was sparked by my friendly red elephant, and a wedding where Marie was truly there in spirit.  The evidence: I came home from my honeymoon to find a very nice package in the mail.  Judging by the stamps in the front, it could only be sent from Japan.  Turning the package over, there it read, "From: M. Wintzer".  

So, being new to mail-art, it took me some time to figure out what to do with my present.  I looked at it from all angles, opened it up, and looked to see what might come…
