update on lost mail

Earlier in the month I reported a missing piece of mail from July Staroscik.  It arrived!  A little worn about the edges.  My theory is that thickness  have confused the sorting machines.  Fab piece, I'm so glad it is here.

Lost in North Houston sorting Facility

On Friday, I was tickled to see on Informed Delivery that something from July Staroscik was on its way to me.   It didn't arrive as scheduled, so I assumed it would show up Saturday.  No Dice!  Today, nothing.  Your MA is MIA.  Ahgh!

no recourse, but

Went to visit the post office and for the first time argued with the ladies there.  They took exception to my card to Samantha Price, said it wasn't bendy enough.  Well duh, that's why I put the extra postage on it for non machinable.  But, I couldn't send it as is. Does this call for a disguise and trying again with a different clerk? should I give in and wrap it as a package and send it that way?  Don't worry Sam!  I haven't forgotten you. I'd preview It for you but that would be…

how do you store Inchies?

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…

The Artistamp Review #1

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.
