Carina from Finland- Feel like a million

Big envelope arrived today 27x18cm with a lovely artwork inside. My first one from Carina Granlund. She wrote that this piece is "an easy peasy technique in etching," and it was put in her graphic press. Nice one Carina. This has beautiful details, from stitching, drawing and kind of almost perforated dots.

She even wrote me a letter, and oh the stamps are gorgeous! World Design Capital, Helsinki 2012.

 If this is an easy peasy technique, Carina, I'd like you to try much harder on your next mail art for me HA HA! Thanks, I love it! TAK!

And I owe you a letter too! ;-))

OK, tack! Got it! Right word, wrong spelling!

 I have 'microbats' in my shed too, they are so tiny and they all huddle up and sleep together on the ceiling, dozens of them! They are about as big as the head of your bat artwork! They are so cute, but I'm told they bite! 

MMANW! ;-)

Thank you Vizma for you blogged my dear bat and TY for all the funny comments! We have inherent bats in our garage roof, they are such fascinating animals. TAK is not entirely correct, but very close. The correct word is "tack" but pronounced "takk or tacc". Mail Art slang lexicon is a great idea! GDTMMA!

LOL Cheryl (intentional use of trite internet slang) yes, the English language will soon be reduced to this. I think grunting might be more eloquent.

mail art internet slang (I made it up)

TIGMA  (this is great mail art); ICTA (I covet this art); TIPG (this is pure genius); GDTMMA (great day to make mail art); MPIL (my postperson is late); MMWP (my mailbox was packed); DMDA (Dean Marks Did It Again); MMANW (make mail art, not war). Okay, I'll stop now.
