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.…

Grethe Bjornhaug's paintings -- Gorgeous!

Here's an envelope and little painting (oil, I'm guessing) that actually match, and a sweet little gold-flecked pony, from Grethe! Look at that thick purple paint on the flowers! And the dark background makes it look as though the flowers are being blown in a storm. I just love this! …

Katlynn's Tastee-Freez

Ermahgad! Katlynn sent me this beautiful postcard with a photo of a Tastee-Freez fast food place--I nearly fell over because 50 years ago I used to go almost daily to a place exactly like this one in Riverside, California. They made greasy wonderful delicious tacos. Thanks Katlynn!…

Aine Holder's packet of wonders

Aine sent me the cutest envelope I ever saw. She returned a Buddy Jam card I'd sent her and I love her adds--they look totally organic to the card. Especially love the green dots! And she sent a B&W postcard she says I am free to use in whatever way I wish (I'll most likely just put it on my bulletin board and look at it)--and a whole bunch of little butterflies and hearts etc, all very delicately made! Thanks Aine for all the beauty!…

FinnBadger's Erasure Project

FinnBadger sent me an erasure he had done of a little Bill Bryson piece from a tear-off calendar page, and then a pre-paid postcard with a full page of text. He invited me to make my "adjustments" to this text and return it to him, just my favorite thing to do! Thanks, FinnBadger!…

Chris Wells -- stunning visual poetry

Here are two from Chris Wells, whose work continues to simply stun me. The images, the poem, the layers and layers, both physical and metaphorical -- amazing stuff. On the digital print, notice how the word "children" appears to be being eaten by something. Wow!…

RAK? sends mystery mail

No identification on this so I'm assuming it's a RAK! Any, whoever you are, I love it and thank you! I'm sure you knew I would not be able to obey your command "Do Not Open" --but it was a challenge removing all those staples! The whole thing is just incredibly charming and I love the photos of the people inside.…

Linda French's ATC's

I received a beautiful envelope with two Linda French ATC's. The one on the left is called "Landscapes Seascapes Dreamscapes" and the one on the right is "Martha and I Were Never Really That Close" because it's made out of a bit of packaging from a Martha Stewart scoring board. The second photo is an ATC that I started with Linda's adds, the woman's face and the handwriting beginning "I am" and the third is a new Trio Jam start!…

Sheri Rice loverly PC

Sheri sends a PC with the images of stained glass windows and an enigmatic framed birdie -- many layers of paint and paper and punctuation! The reverse side is pretty marvelous also, and includes a baggage claim ticket which might come in handy. I love the design on the back of the PC--looks African.…
