Tic Tac's Artistamp Banana Cows!

My first Mail Art from Tic Tac -- and it's ARTISTAMPS! Of Cows! With Banana Horns! I can't tell you how Moooooch I Loooooove these ladies. I assume any cows as pretty as these are lady cows.

And she sends me a photo of the cows when they're relaxing, not posing for Artistamps with Banana Horns.

Thank you Tic Tac! Oh, and the envelope is pretty cool,…

Tina Hedin's PC

Tina is doing the 365 Postcard thing--and if I were doing that it would be pretty slapdash, but look at this! A beautiful altered postcard with, on the other side, fabulous hand made art with a tiny envelope attached. The envelope was so pretty I didn't want to open it but she said I should, so I very carefully peeled back the stuck flap and inside was a tiny copy of a Thomas Lux poem which PERFECTLY fits the front of the postcard. Amazing!  Thank you so much Tina. This will be a favorite of…

Dean aka Artist in Seine -- Banana Mail Squared!

Here, belatedly, are some pics of the truly In Seine Banana Mail Dean sent me. These were tastefully packaged in battered celophane and staples. I'm afraid opening the mail pretty much destroyed the "envelope" but fortunately the contents were protected! Now I don't have to worry about my next Halloween costume, that is if I can just figure out a way to make this thing smell a little less awful! Dean, this thing is hilarious -- reminds me of the kind of junk they used to sell on the backs of…

Kathy Barnett's Circus Man

The circus is back in town with this wonderful bit of whimsey from Kathy Barnett. The Man is big, about a foot tall, and his legs and arms move! He's going to live on the fridge for a while, next to the two-headed skeleton she sent earlier. The tent envelope is quite nice, too!…

MomKat's Banana Mail Lands in Eugene

MomKat's banana mail arrived right on time (early, actually, but I waited). My favorite part is the Banana Phone stamp! Now THAT'S absurd. (although my father gave me a telephone in the shape of a duck once). If I still had it I'd send it to one of you!…

Finnbadger's Banana-Mail

I finally found out what these Minions are all about (thank god for Wikipedia) and now I'm going to watch the movie! Finnbadger sent me a paper towel with Stuart, Kevin, and half of Bob. I LOVE it! Even though it's a "Bounty" paper towel, it's never going to be a "quick picker-upper" in my house!

Very nice BananananananananaBatman envelope with matching stamp, too! …

Helle Pollas beauty

I think this is my first piece by Helle, and I hope it won't be my last! I really love it. I hate to keep harping on "layers" but I guess that technique must be a favorite of mine because this just blows me away. So much to look at in this small piece. So colorful! There are representational "things" to rest your eye on, such as the bird, and then all the lovely chaos! Thanks Helle. Also I like the sort of 'poofiness' of the object. I don't know if the canvas came that way or if Helle…

Terry Owenby's Altered PC

I just love the layered abstractions in this PC. It makes you peer into it as if you could see what was beneath the alterations, and then draw your focus back to what Terry's done because it's so cool! Thanks Terry, fellow Oregonian!

Mail Art Martha -- News from the Queendom

MAM sent me this wonderful bunch of stuff -- first an envelope with her terrific snail and bunny stamps. Then inside a lovely copy of a piece she sold for charity -- I can understand why someone bought it, it's really nice, both in artistic merit and in the thoughts expressed. AND an adorable little puppy ATC -- I hope that is your doggie, Martha. AND "Rites of Spring!" another great bunny, running fast!

AND a buddy jam to play with! Whew! Thank you so much Martha--I love the warm…

William Mellott's Delicious Mail Art

William's envelopes are so delightful. Taiwan has the coolest postage stamps! And I am definitely going to peel off that Petit Skull Washi tape and save it. And inside this one were a bunch of ATC's -- a finished Buddy Jam, a quad jam for me to work on, and this sweet "Too Little Time" card which I so totally identify with! 

This PC arrived after a long trip, possibly to the Azores, and I love it -- the so-poignant story of Ken and Lonny. and on the other side, this poor kid's…

Linda French's beautiful Mail Art

Jon Foster Super-Size Package

I love the packs of stuff Jon sends! This one has a particularly nice Ken Maynard in it, and a document "from the desk of Ed! (Giecek), with a great "This is not a cartoon" by Peter Kuper, a Sticker Dude sticker, and much more. I'm assuming this is meant to be an Add & Pass, though it doesn't say so. Anyway, I'm addin' and passin'. Thanks Jon!…

My first mail art from Mark Russell

I received this beautifully enigmatic piece from Mark Russell (sorry I spelled the last name wrong on the photos!)  The envelope is spectacular front and back, especially the back, a work of art in itself. I don't know how it is made but it's fascinating to look at, like some mysterious code. If you look very closely at the back of the envelope, you can see the words "the swollen rivers" down near the left side....I just love it.…
