Hello, I have not a deadline to altered book pages project but I can say 2 months from now is ok to give time to everyone to send back their pages. If pages are  back to me earlier I will take some photos from the collaborative art book . Thank you for your participation.

oh my...it looks like i missed your post! but for some unknown reason it's a year notification from the groups i belong to in iuoma go on and off. so if now and then i don't do a little tour around to check what's new i miss events, blogs etc.. "my punishment" for not being so active here :-)) anyways thank you for the cool post!! i was waiting and hoping you got mine to connect it with yours http://tac-tictac.blogspot.de/2016/05/blog-post_29.html

i really got angry at the post system...as the employee was reluctant to accept it and i thought they ditched it afterwards. 

!!good to know they didn't!!

hi Heleen, so nice of you. thank you very much! i owe you mailart...since the last experiment gone wrong. i sent you a banana case anonimously like the one i received... ;-)

my side of the postal system seems to 'seriously' lack of sense of humour. sad.

Hi Heleen, glad to know the envelope made it's way to you and that you are enjoying the contents. No worries about getting anything back at me in any pressed time . . . next week, next month, next year [we're almost there], or the next blue moon . . . I've no expectations, so only if you have the time and desire. Peace out . . . K.
