Cheryl has once again investigated. She always brings back tiny bits of forgotten history from her trips for us to enjoy. This one had me laughing for a long time. And where does she get all that stuff from? Leonardo and his bi-pede T-shirt that he never took off :-))) a piece of genius writing. The front…Continue
I am always looking forward to Karen's envelopes. It's a gift every time. I got two of them last week, with card and arty slides, and very sweet messages. The card is a photo of relatives, as she explains on the back of it. Tightly surrounded by a protective white line, and looked after by an angel. The…Continue

Lesley has to deal with so many things in her life right now, I can't believe how good her art is even in those busy-difficult days, and I can't believe I got TWO great envelopes from her. A chopped up painting, a drawing, very delicate paper, and a small envelope that does or does not contain the…Continue
This is my first mail from Carina, and very nice interpretation of the song I can see clearly now. I always like her letters and the way she turns them into great mail art. Seeing more clearly, yes, for sure I would like that. Thank you very much Carina!…Continue
I don't even know where to start to explain the geniusness of this piece. First of all, although hard to tell from the picture, it is completely en relief, 3D and everything, and shipped as it is without envelope. Dean got the idea for this after a comment on one of his blogs where I…Continue
Torma is is making great cards with newspapers these days, I always admire his creativity. And I see the little "rolls" from his last card have caught on and became even more sophisticated. Really nice envelope as well, thank you Torma, it's always a pleasure!…Continue
Have you ever dreamed that you were falling into a pothole? Have you ever imagined what would happen then? No? Well, in this case, Cheryl did it for you. Her Dream series is growing in complexity and twists, and the poetry that comes along with it is ever so unique and sharp and chiseled.
Once again the photo doesn't do justice to the work. There is a whole world of texture in this etegami that got lost through the camera lens, unfortunately. This is a card from Debbie's new series on holes. She always finds extremely interesting topics to work on, she has an amazing…Continue
This is a fantastic (laminated) card by Austin. He has opened the thick walls of the mysterious Hotel Nemzeti for us to have a peep into its darkest corners. The details of the three floors are too many to describe, but there is a certain glow and an atmosphere that has nothing to envy to the best…Continue
Genki people, I missed you too much, I couldn't be without you for very long. I received a LOT of mail art last week and I don't know if I will have time to blog it all, but here is a copy-paste from last week's Marie's Mailbox blog. Sorry it is a bit long but I didn't want to post three separate blogs.
Bound by Life (chopped up and happier now, she says) - from Cheryl Penn…
A few Weeks ago Cheryl blogged this gallery of Monas featuring several of the works she received for her mail-art call, a masterpiece like only RCBz can do them. I remember commenting on her blog saying that I wouldn't be surprised if the tiny postcards on the rack by the museum shop were also…Continue
