I think this envelope got returned to Frieder, because it was included in another envelope and they both had cancellation marks. It's a beauty. And I love the stamps on the back as well.…Continue
This was a lucky mail day with two envelopes from Katerina. An authentic piece of magic flying…Continue
Brittany is sending me this little gem, I loooove the photo and the way she framed it and made a card out of it. Superb.…Continue
Svenja is experimenting with gold and red and book covers and poems. How my photo of it can be so poor, I don't know. The red paint is wonderfully blended with gold, and the book cover as well (and not brown as it seems to be on the photo). I really like her choice of picture and the composition,…Continue

Got a new Brain Cell From Ryosuke Cohen, yey! I think he did a GREAT job, I'm absolutely chuffed. The Minxus stamps look dashing, right in the middle of the sheet (and just on top of Cheryl's hat). And icing on the cake, the address list goes: cp-sa, mw-jp, rc-jp. Great!
Dean loves to play with words, and taking the twisted roads of language back and forth between French and English is even more fun. He knows how to build a story around the most (apparently) insignificant comment that comes up on a blog. So he knows that crêpes suzette only make me moderately homesick…Continue
I sometimes wish RCBz would be around to tell us more about his pieces. I know I really like this card, but I can't explain exactly why. Esthetically, Hokusai's wave is always a winner. The card is built very simply around it. No frills whatsoever, and the back of the card is equally sober, stripped-down to the…Continue
When I picked up this package at the post office I first thought someone had sent me a slice of chocolate cake. I was almost disappointed that it wasn't the case, until I saw that it was Alicia's last. She painted a great saddle shoe on one of her... I really don't know the name of it, what is it…Continue
Well, the envelope says De Villo but I know that the one who did ALL this work is Dark wall. Dw has been a fervent and very prolific producer of Minxus art over the past months. Until now I had only seen his collection through the pictures uploaded in his gallery, but with this package I am now…Continue
I am very happy to hear from Bruno again. This new piece he sent me is very much in the line of his work, exploring textures, shapes, layers, soft tones. He is another aficionado and very successful user of the Re- concept. I hope this is a sign that he is returning to mail art? Bruno, thank you…Continue
Vizma has such an impressive collection of stamps, they make for great envelopes. I could immediately tell this one was…Continue
Music was the first theme for the official kick off of Cheryl's New Alexandrian Library. She is sending one of her books back for every work she is getting, and as usual I'm on the winning side. Her book is an ode to music, to the poetry in all music, to its many facets.…Continue
Dean went MAD, and so went the bar codes. Lucky them. He says he made this card during a flight. I'm wondering, what does he bring on board? Does he collect all the bar codes beforehand and then assembles them in flight? Or does he carry piles of... what exactly, I can't even figure out where they come…Continue
Just when my mailbox was on the verge of despair about not seeing a David Stafford for too long, I get this wonderful card. A very dreamy, soft and hazy picture, a beautiful woman and the entrance of a mysterious tunnel. It's a dream, for sure. And such a well written dream as well. Please take a moment…Continue
My Theo Nelson collection is growing, and I couldn't be happier. His seasonal postcards with poem are always a delight. In…Continue

Thanks to all four of you for those great cards!
This piece by Nancy blew my mind into a different hairdo. I could tell from the envelope...
"Explore her feelings and ideas" is written somewhere in that piece on transparent paper, almost completely merged and blended with the background, just visible enough for me to find it. And I found it. So I…
