Richard C's Big Black Marker

This is the "front" of the postcard -- the image on it fascinates me. Tall-hat people with long skirts and conical straw houses, playing ice hockey. Hmmm. It's not Oregon and I don't think it's Carbondale, either. But the real treat is I told Richard he might be…

Agri-Biz from Joey Patrickt

Wonderful comment on our food industry, I'd say. The red background is sort of darkly creepy and somehow cheerful all at the same time -- Amerika the Beeyoutifull! Or maybe it's just that I watched Mulholland Drive last night and David Lynch is still hovering around my tired old consciousness. Anyway, I love this card and would love to know how you got the corn and cow images…

Beauties from Fleur

Wow, isn't this amazing? The piece with the black squares looks woven but it's not--the colored squares a glued on -- I would make such a mess if I tried that! The upper left ATC is a complete jam that I started, William M., and Fleur added to. William added the guy leaning over, Fleur added an orange star, a butterfly, a mushroom, and a strawberry! And the little valentine…

Big Mail Art Package from Ruth Giles!

Wow, beautiful ATC's from Ruth, of course they don't show up nearly as sparkly as they are for real. The combination of colors, shapes, and text on these is really fascinating. Then, because I'm completely ignorant, I had to look up the "Stay gold" and S.E. Hinton. I've never read "The Outsiders" so I guess I need to do that. And the "Stay gold, Ponyboy" quote comes from Robert…

Pinkie gets a new skirt from Sheri Rice

Pinkie has a new skirt, although I had to Google the original to tell. I love the butterfly and the text -- inexpressive girlishness indeed! Thanks Sheri!

Reds from Judy Staroscik and Jan Hodgman

Coincidental reds from Judy Staroscik and Jan Hodgman. Judy's card (top) is beautifully textured with different kinds of paper layered with text and even some bits of barely woven orange thread within a circle. Jan's welcomes me to "Blue Rondo" which she says can double for orange lovers! She's doing the Mailart 365 and this card was #8. Beautiful, both of…

ATC's from Erin Young

These two beauties are just for me! Look at those textures--and the COLORS are amazing! And here is a finished buddy jam I started and Erin added the clock, the text and (I think) the red bird. Really nice work, Erin. Thanks! And here's the new buddy jam you…

Lynne Gurnee's Big Beautiful PC

Lynne says she used a few pieces I sent her in this, with background by Donna Blakely. Very lovely, peaceful scene. Thanks, Lynne. It's nice to see the bits we send around recycled like this.

Altered Cigar Box Lid from Debra Mulnick

Wonderful altered cigar box lid from Debra in Idaho. It arrived naket and almost intact. There were a few minor postal changes. I especially like the matches. Debra has a wonderful sense of color and what bits are going to work with what other bits. Love it.…

Spooky Face from William M.

Super Spooky face from William M. The shape of the eyes and eyebrows somehow remind me of George W. Bush, who was not nearly as scary as our next president! Then on the back, an erasure poem, the sad story of Carmen Sternwood. "For a moment the gun." Great…

WooHoo BIG Mail Art from Sparkle! (Part 2)

Then, a "zine" entitled (maybe) "phasisi skills" -- I love this way of making a little zine--this one is wonderfully surreal. My favorite page is the one that says "iron nail in boiled water, no air=shiny nail" but the Australian bird is pretty nice, too.

There was also a bookmark, which I didn't scan because it's already keeping my place in my latest detective…
