A question for the faithful

I have just woken myself up from a bad dream.  I don't know quite what time it is but it's still dark out so I guess 'early' will do.  I suffer from dreams a lot. yhis was a dandy and I have been left wondering just how many people, out there in the Eternal Network, really find mail art sustaining to the spirit and an encouragement?  Or is it all just a distraction, putting off the inevitable??I was wondering which, if you came across a Genie who could move mountains and make anything possible,…See More

Hi Mary Anne. Thank you for the welcome! Although I've only been making mail art for the last couple years, I've been interested in collage for decades. Hannah H is a BIG inspiration.

Hi Mary Anne, meanwhile I tell you that I am moved by the image you have chosen as the cover.

I almost never use collages, if anything I use it digitally, but I liked to pay homage to a brave artist like Hannah, and not yet fully understood what I have to do in the group to her

Ciao Mary Anne, intanto ti dico che mi commuove l'immagine che hai scelto come copertina.

Io non uso quasi mai il collages, semmai lo uso digitale, ma mi piaceva omaggiare una artista coraggiosa come Hannah, e non ancora capito bene cosa devo fare nel gruppo a lei

Dear Mary Ann, Thank you so much for preparing a documentation and for having everything in mind! For me it is okay with name and address or with name and country.

Merry, merry Christmas and I wish you a nice fat filled stocking!

Charlotte

Hi there Mary Anne

I'm getting back into mail art after a break and would love to exchange mail with you. I'll be sending you some mail soon!

Best regards

Hi MAry Ann, thanks for writing so witty and nicely! ( my adjectives are not so many!) When your envelope arrived I was quite absorbed by your wonderful creation of the blue-white-black lettering, so now I hurried and took a straight look and discovered Monty Python! I am really a fan of the ministry of silly walks and the sketch with the parrot and... and..

You are right: I feel like a very happy bunny! (even when our heating is gone and a new one is not to be seen. we live in an apartment in an old high house; the water is only handwarm, but the temperatures outside are rather cold! But I still can have a hot water bottle!)

With fat warm hugs

Charlotte

thank you dear Mary Anne !!!  ( received  on  last  September 14 - )

Hi Mary Ann, your idea of making a booklet out of the envelopes is real convincing ! I had thought of something like that, but my box turns out to be rather big, so that there is a lot of space also for the envelopes, otherwise it would look a bit deserted. 

Fat hugs Charlotte

Thanks Mary Anne, i like stickers of all kind and i use them on Add/Pass, too.

Just in case you want to consider "what next?", come by the "Bananas" group (yes, there is a group for going bananas) and we can start an exchange for November 18...International Banana Appreciation Day :-)

Hi Mary Anne.

I think I have misunderstood what the “birthday box” is.  I wanted to send only one item for the box, not create/send one to each person who is also participating.  Can you help me understand the project better?  I normally do 1:1 exchanges, so it’s very likely I’m not quite with the program.  Thanks, and remind me again what the deadline is.

Another reason I’m confused is I saw Maria in Athens say she was receiving some pieces, then I saw Kat was too - then I got a list from Cascadia Artpost of participants so far - with addresses.  I don’t do multiples using a printer at the moment, so not set up for that.......

Can you please explain?  Sorry to be such a Neanderthal.  Debra

It is Autumn and England is grey and damp.  That's part of its charm, I suppose, but it can be a little wearing after a while; so when the postie struggles to deliver a great slab of Italian mail art he is the most popular person in my world.  This week he delivered a monster.  i don't think I have ever had such an envelope arrive unannounced on my doorstep and it is going to take a week or two to digest its contents.

This week I received a parcel from Roberto Formigoni.

mystery arrival

Posted on November 12, 2019 at 12:20pm 6 Comments

This oddity arrived a week or so ago.  I nothing of it other than, giving the recent posts about the presence of money in the mail art universe, I thought it might be of some interest.  All the 'artwork' is copies; for example the 'hello Mary' collage has my name written on a label stuck over the original.  The 'dedication' at the top of that sheet is also a label stuck over another name.  None of it inspires me to take advantage of the offer and send money for the book but I give the…

Blog number 15 - art critisism for beginers . . .

Last night I saw a picture pinned up near someone's desk. 

It was a marvel.  A4. There was a great spray of oil gushing up over a desert landscape.  An ecological comment?  Energy. The violence of a new discovery perhaps and also the excitement.  How had the effect been achieved?  Black ink sprayed over a semi abstract landscape?  Perfect composition.  The hand of an undiscovered master?  I went closer - took a better look . . .

A rather poor colour photocopy of a photograph -…
