1/2 puzzle envelopes - return to Ahmet Demir

The deal when you get Ahmet's puzzle envelopes is to send him back two other envelopes he added in the mail. The envelopes are his own design and will be matched with the other half of the puzzle, being sent back to him from yet another part of the world.

I decorated this one with cherry blossom rubber stamps I am making for my new year's cards. But... I realized only after scanning that I placed the tanuki stamp so close to the lady's boobies! Horny tanuki, this one. I just hope I didn't… Continue

Big time flâneur the Crimson G has landed

This was a very much awaited envelope. In fact I had lost all hope of ever seeing the face of Cheryl's Giant. Do you know how long He has been on the road for? Three months! Where has He been all this time? Oh well, I guess they didn't call Him a flâneur for nothing, there must be an abundance of things to see between South Africa… Continue

A Blog for J J Martyn, Toronto Canada

I received this on Monday from J.J. (is that how you want to be known??) all the way from Canada. I bet its icing up there, while we SWELTER and storm? The artwork arrived in this card, also by JJ and her partner Mike. She had noticed the cat blogs and cat days and thought this appropriate - it is! The card is made from paper cut-outs - Amazing!

Received from Diane Keys, USA--Student Pass

Diane mailed an engaging example of what can be done with the things others discard. Scraps of trash, bits of printed text--she rescues and elevates fragments to create a new sentiment. The stitching work not only defines, but connects.Thanks,…

Many Thanks

Am so grateful to everyone here at IUOMA for the birthday shout outs and their kind words. Have been tied up with school and films so have been very quiet here. Have a pile of art to post out and get up to speed with. Xmas break is December 18 so I shall be more proactive and visible. Thanks again to everyone for the continued love and support.

Received from Katerina Nikoltsou, Greece--Haptic Buffalo and Roaming Mail Art

Okay, I knew this envelope of goodies was coming my way, but I really did wonder when, and then, while I was out shoveling snow just now, my 84-year-old neighbor brought Katerina's mail art over to me. Not only did she have my mail art for nearly two weeks, but she had already opened it, stating that her curiosity was irresistible. It had some "dust and crumbs" in it which she took upon herself to get rid of for me, which…
