Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I appreciate thoughtful and creative mail art and enjoy making and sending it. Please note, if you wish to include me in any add-n-pass projects, please make sure they are something with a theme and not simply an excuse to mail flotsam and jetsam around the world. I have receive too many add-n-passes that feel like old fashioned chain letters. When those arrive, I am no longer adding and/or passing.

Found a few very old aerogrammes that I used to send from Istanbul and from Greece,"back-in-the-days".

So a few on their way to you, perhaps they were the earliest form of my "mail art", as there were no greeting cards to be bought back then, so I had to decorate aerogrammes!:

Thanks for the memories :-)
