ejva and nsva sent me a most intriguing mail art package that came in my mail box today (along with ANOTHER do-it-yourself Haptic thiing from Germany!) Here is the Haptic packet from China...with instructions:
The green base is really a folded..."something"…Continue
Sometimes, when a package like this arrives, you almost don't want to hurry to open it. It is better to linger and spend time with the details of the envelope, the soft refineness of the wrapping...let anticipation built a bit, because you just know that itis going to be something special from Karen!
ART NATION is a give-away clue...guarded through the postal…Continue

"Woof!" what fun rubber stamps! And check out that little kitty on the far right, too!
And the HAPTIC card from Angie is super soft fleece! And super blue Lake Michigan.
Great art here...and as Adamandia says"

"The man with the red s...... is a most......." mysterious message, Jon,
will need help here. But the layers of images are fantastic, and it adds
to my collection of your "eye" art! 'Love it! Thank you!
Now, this is AMAZING (because it finally arrived). If I read the postal cancellation correctly, it is stamped December 9, 2010...read backwards, or right to left: 2010-12-09? Oh dear, South Africa and Greece have to wait once-a-month post, while Germany gets mail art before I can return from the post office! sigh...Such is life in our World/Town! Well, the wait is so well worth it! This is Cheryl at her best...wonderfully layers and elegant textures of "rice paper" and hand-made pulp…Continue

'Tis amazing how quickly we can communicate via "snail mail" between Germany and Greece. It shows how "very well organized" they are, and that they are "doing a very good job" at what they do (both postal services...plus the 5-10 daily flights direct to Thessaloniki helps, I am sure!) Well, on this the last day of the old year, it is so appropriate to receive this happy haptic package fro Herr Erni! Needs much study and reflections, and wondrous images appear and then too, many questions…Continue
Last year, at the end of 2009 going into 2010, Banana Man was very active here at IUOMA. And I do miss his photographic "portraits" and other "bananamania". So it was with happy surprise that this very "Haptic" card arrived on this very last day of 2010. Many elements have been recycled from other mail artists, and the entire piece is a rare collection and reminder of dear mail art friends. Thank you, Wolfgang!
(and see, the mail service is sooooo quick from (Dortmund) Germany, too!…Continue

Snooky Dog (ATC) came along for the ride and brought me this beauty from Angie
When open, it has that wonderful "SEE THROUGH" element that brings us to a "KOSMOS"
of twirling worlds and delicate threads.
The textured "cover" is…Continue
As of today, with the arival of No.12, I now have a collection of 4 "365"ers. Amazing is the fact that, without any set theme by the group, still these four cards are "butterflies" and flowers and blossoms, in cold WINTER! (Well, ok, I "added" the butterfly over Jennie Hinchcliff's "X", but butterflies abound!) Upper RIGHT is 2/365 from Rani, lower right is 3/365 from…Continue

Look carefully to spot the basis of this composition...yes there are the lips puckered, and yet another face or two. But look deeper...beautiful layered effect! And there emerges Henri Matisse's "La Danse"! Amazing things coming from Jon! Many…Continue
