Minneapolis Gnome's #9 "Another Crappy Mini-Zine" and much more

Ermahgad!!!!!! The Gnome warned me about this mailing, and here it is! As always, in an extraordinary envelope, this time a really nice hand-drawn piece (front and back) about the "right of assembly" which has great importance for us "assemblers" of Mail-Art! Notice that the postage on the envelope is ALL about the same subject -- amazing that you would have all these stamps, Gnome, and be able to put your hands on them when you needed them! And your Gnome artistamp at the end of the…

Jorgia Jacobs sends another Fabulous Bunch of Stuff Part 1

Jorgia loves to do these complicated little packets. This one is a book made out of magazine paper, interesting in and of itself (I keep trying to read the stories). Each page has little packets attached with more stuff, all of which will find its way back into the Mail Art stream as I use it in my own mail art! I love this kind of recycling! Oh, and there's a theme -- the light side and the dark -- you'll see why.…

Debra Mulnick, my Idaho neighbor, with a PC that speaks to us today

Debra sends this altered PC all about (to me) privacy, and lack of it -- the paranoia continues on the flip side with an eye, the words "exhibit D" etc. Love it! Strikes home for sure! As the great Satchel Paige said, "Don't look back, they might be gaining on you." …

Kathy Barnett's carnie art

My Dad used to take me to carnivals--they always frightened me a little bit but his presence beside me was total safety. Here's Kathy's take on the theme! The two-headed skeleton lives on my fridge now!…

Ariel Teeters' lovely little watercolor ATC

This is just simply very lovely. Thanks, Ariel! She also sends it in a washi-intensive envelope, and includes a little bit of the washi for my use later! I can always use washi!…

Melissa Wand's Favorite Place

Melissa sent me this poignant picture of an old closed up IGA grocery and the note on the back explains why it's a "favorite place" for her. I didn't think she'd mind if I shared her story.…

Maryann Battaglia, fellow Oregonian, makes beautiful mail-art

Maryann says I was the first person to "reach out" to her on this site, so I am privileged to receive this absolutely gorgeous envelope and contents. I wish we had "feel-o-vision" because this envelope needs to be touched to get its full beauty. It has many layers of paint, paper, and shiny stuff, applied with exquisite care. Even the little black dots have a purpose and are very well done (they continue around the back). Within, a note from Maryann about how she likes to alter papers, and…

Moan Lisa(?) and the Crackerjack Kid

I'm too new at this game to be sure about the identities of these makers -- no I.D. except the postmark which was Cedar Rapids. And there is one clear mark from Crackerjack. If anyone can clarify for me I'd appreciate it. I really enjoy these pieces. They are hand painted, stamped, and of course, pasted, on really heavy beautiful paper that looks hand-made. …

Rachel Freeman's lovely silver bunny

I would so love to be able to draw/paint/make original art like this. I'm pretty good with a glue stick, but that's about my limit! Really nice fish stamps, too! From a former…

Sherri Rice's "Curious Beasts"

This PC from Sherri is just Wow! Beautifully crafted, I love the colors, the bit of stained glass window she uses is not your usual (it has nude figures on it), and sweet little donkey. Plus the creature in the bottle. And the background! I could look at this for days and probably will!…
