Thank You, Kathy Barnett!

This is just the envelope, front and back. Kathy also sent artistamps of the airmail persuasion and an arty notecard...But I am totally smitten with the pipe smoking doggy next to my address. Wonder what’s in that pipe…

Learn From My Mistakes

Well, nuts! A couple of weeks ago, I did some envelopes with acrylic paint on them and then mailed them out without taping over the peel & stick address labels I put on them. Some had pilots and planes with  brown paint sponged over them. Some had multicolored bubbles all over. Absolutely none of them was acknowledged as having been received. I thought this was strange because most of my mailart friends let me know when stuff arrives f rom me, so I’m assuming the address labels didn’t…

Thank you, Bonniediva!

Ms. Bonniediva sent me a wee envelope (upper right) full of gifts that are glad surprises: the handsome brawny man on the envelope, Bonniediva’s official artist calling card, flower stickers with disability etiquette hints on the back, a luscious dance ATC, an “Approved by IUOMA” sticker, a wildcat sticker that I first thought was some odd cut of meat—I need to get my eyes checked—and an eensy weensy joker card.  I know you guys are jealous, but I AM just THAT special. …

Thank you, Sticker Dude

Kvelling here! The legendary Sticker Dude sent goodies directly to MY mailbox! 

Prior to today, our contact was secondhand. My very first mailart friend would, about once a year, send me—almost grudgingly—one of SD’s stickers, always accompanied by a short speech reminding me that this was rare currency, something too precious to share with anybody else. I’m pretty sure there was a voodoo curse involved. Why else would she always include a chicken head?

No danger there! I…
