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…Continue
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. …Continue

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…Continue
