I need to destash my Mail Art Archive. It has taken over way too much of my house. What do you all think of this idea:
I will gather up a batch of pieces of mail art from different artists and mail them to anyone who asks for a batch. It will be pretty random. I'm going to keep things I love, obviously, but try to part with the…Continue

and some stickers and an Ektachrome Transparency --what fun I'll have with that! Thanks Brooke. Happy to see you back!
This one is truly eclectic, with poems (real poems!), shared mail art, shared ephemera, and an actual essay! Love it, Jayne! My fave part is page 2 or 3, depending on how you count, with the angles and numbers and strange lettering, like a super-strange map. Thank…Continue
I hope a lot of you received this incredibly funny zine from Melissa. I seriously laughed my ass off. I think the best part is the cowboy on the bottom of each page. Somehow he makes my think of "W" and now that he's not POTUS, i think he's hilarious!…Continue
Then this poem going from "vacancies" to…Continue

Evidently there was some visiting going on! I am so envious of Europeans who can just hop on over to another whole entire country so easily. The USA is toooo big! With giant oceans on two sides. Anyway, very cute card from the two of them.…Continue
Charlotte Geister sends this absolutely wunderbar postcard of "red chicken looking for Oregon." It is water-colored, tea-bagged, collaged, and stitched and I think it is just fabulous!
Terry Owenby cracks me up! She says she just found this jam dated 11-30-17--better late than never for sure. I love the end result, and the little frog extra ATC. Thanks Terry!
