Incoming from Martha

Lovely postcard from Mail art Martha. Thanks so much. I think the driver of this truck is just wonderful. I didn't take a photo of the other side, but she drew me a dog with brown patches, a picket fence with roses, and my favorite, feet with socks and sandals.  Thanks again…

Jon Foster

Jon sent this amazing envelope with a TON of goodies inside. I can't wait to get started using them. Thanks so much Jon.  I think at the bottom of the page is an add and pass of a human intestine diagram.  Who should I send it to?

Val sends faces

Val sent me a lovely drawing, some encouraging words, and a card with finger knitting (my guess anyhow) and a floppy disc clip attached.  How creatively cool!  I love the reverse of the card.  The heading is "Watussi und Zulus".  It reiminds me of the song lyric, "do the Watussi.."  My fave is the smiling red stamped face.  Thanks Val.…
