How could that ever happen? Get the whole story and watch this fine Video by Sarah Churchill: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/video/unusual-mail-art-mega-haul Listen carefully to what she relates in the end of the video. About that postman taking the piece I had sent as kind of garbage! The funny thing about it all is that SHE had asked…Continue
Sarah has now mastered the Jon Foster's "Tape over the Top" method. And no bits have fallen off. Keeping bits attached is very important.
A one-stop shop for mail viewing and a great way for me to catch up on some overdue blogging so I can have some mailart-making time :)))))))))))))))))))
An eye-popping bubble kissed collage from Angie sans Snooky, I'll bet he would've had something to say about that cat suit.
A wonderful little surprise from Sarah which arrived in a homemade envelope. At first I didn't see it. I read the title on the back, I looked at the picture again, read the back, looked again. And there it was; Lava flowing from the spice cone. I guess it just looked normal to me. Very funny and clever.…Continue
OH I like this one. OK so I took me five times to scan it, and then the scanner started smoking. Not to worry as I got the snap shot in the end.
Something very pleasing about Black & White circles, and this of course reminds me of bar codes. Well the unstraight kind. Actually most likely not very easy to do when you think about it. It's a hit for me. Thank you Sarah.…Continue

I like numbers so this title is right up my alley. I always think that works of Mail Art should have names, but numbers stimulate the thought process as well. Like who received part 2 / 6 and how can we really be sure that there are only six parts?
But look deeper into all the detail;…Continue
A good reminder of how I once said that I would never fly in or out of London's Heathrow airport again for the rest of my life. Very funny this one, but then all UK newspapers are funny. Even the serious ones.
And with London 2012 coming in two week, all of the world's eyes will…Continue
Only untill I uploaded the photo did I see AND understand what Sarah was saying on this colourful, funny story-telling-MailArt-Piece (#159/365)! Suitcase stamp? Suitcase stamp... ???? Ahaaaaa, look at the red thingy in the left upper corner, hihi. (Yes, I know my Dutch stamp collection by heart, not.)…Continue
Finally have a chance to post a piece from Sarah I recieved before my sons Make a Wish trip.it is a post card that seems to have a base of a tag or part of a box. Then embelished with more paper and labels. I love it and the stitching is something I have always wanted to do.
Thanks Kat and Sarah. Been busy with a house guest recently but will send an appropriate thank you soon. First from Katarina: layers of textures with article about a tv series, chapter 2, the pacific boils over. and the Agean painting on verse side in Katerina style. Peaceful with a twist of dk. :-)…Continue
In Wales they have tuna lunches everyday, and sewing lessons at the same time. This piece combines the two and adds a little sea fishing to boat boot. Then again a boot in Wales is a trunk unless you wear it on your feet. Just call Carl at sea fishing trips. He'll explain everything to you. Thank you Sarah, great fun.…Continue

I had a very long, very crappy day of training yesterday. By the time I got home I was simply "over it" but when I checked my mail my whole day changed. Nothing makes you feel more special than homemade birthday mail from friends around the world! My birthday is not until tuesday but I can already tell it will be a good one :) Thank-you both so much, you two made my day!!! xoxo
This from Sarak in the UK. Just realized it's not a good scan...3D doesn't do so well on my scanner, not…Continue
