The other day at work I found a few dozen envelopes in the trash and rescued them (well, duh!) They are all sorts of pastel colors, Probably from greeting cards.
I don't need any more envelopes, but couldn't stand to see them tossed. Now they are here. I could send them media rate to somebody that wants them (in the usa, cannot afford…Continue
Norma Soulet is definitely in the Halloween mood. She sent a delicious assortment of scary art.
My devil dog thought so too. Perhaps I'm delusional, but I think the pumpkin art looks interesting after Daisy's…Continue

Robin Jeree sent a lovely set of inchies, along with some other goodies.
I hang mail art up in my office and enjoy it everyday. When the wall is full, I put everything in ring binders and start over. I know, rather OCD. But these are beautiful SMALL gems, lovely to look at, hard to display. Any…Continue

Recently several book marks have arrived here at the Monster Atelier. I can ( and do) mark my place in a book with all sorts of flat items, tho' ATCs get lost.

Adam Roussopoulos created a most excellent inaugural issue of his artistamp review, with promises (threats?) for the next in 2020. I especially liked the bonus pocket in the back.
He also sent a "pop-up" piece of folding art landscape. Very cool.…Continue

Yesterday amongst the boring junk there arrived a new (to me) name in MA, James Chester. At first glance, I thought it might be envelope art, nothing inside. But it was folded and taped with washi, intriguing! So I unfolded it.
Inside was a painted map. ( It didn't fit in my flat bed scanner, sorry I chopped off one end). This is how an…
I received mail from Judi and Judy,(Dagan and Staroscik) which makes me think there is something to this Saturday the 13th business...Both do collages, and while both do careful craftsmanship, they definitely have their own styles. …Continue

This small but lovely piece came from Norma Soulet last week, in honor of the 4th of July. I spent the weekend having fun, which is what its all about, right?. SO now I'd like to share this bold image. .
A lovely piece of art, with a magazine article. I don't read (or speak) Italian, but I believe the article is about the inventor of the hexagonal pencil: Ebenezer Wood. The two pencils on the left are little tiny pencils. Its amazing how something as mundane as pencils can be new from a different perspective.…Continue

Kathy gives plenty of warning before I open the envelope- Its so cool the way she coordinates the whole package each time. The birthday cake is a great touch. Of course I took no heed of the clear warnings. Love the way the…Continue
