Bonniediva replied to Mark Johnson's discussion Do's and don'ts of keeping postage costs down? in the group Ask Anything
"I use a simple digital food scale I bought on Amazon. I always weight my mail and put the exact postage. Too much postage adds up. Also, I keep my mail light weight. I'm amazed when people send me a big heavy add/pass book and expect me to pay…"

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2000
My Website (without http://):
http://https://sites.google.com/view/bonniediva-shorr/home
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I'm a former actress and singer, now teacher and lover of life! I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
Irony and depravity are key, as I find humor in almost every aspect of life. I'm originally from New Orleans, but now live near Chicago. I've been creating and sending MAIL ART all over the world since 2000. I'm an artist, teacher and writer. I special in trashpo and vintage collage. I also produce comic ZINES.

I don't like perfection... I like raw soulful art that does not shock for shock value.
I love pen pal letters, tacky postcards, and whatever you want to send me.
VINTAGE is my thing, and I love thrift stores, antique malls and Ebay (aka "the devil"). LOL!
SEND ME SOMETHING SOON AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED!

Thank you for minizine 7! It reminds me of the good and the bad of no AC. And that I will always miss my grandmothers.

Thank you so much for the next zine and poetry Bonnie. I will send something in return! Just note, it will take some time for my response this time around.  Hope you're enjoying the warm sunshine today.

Thank you for the ATC and for passing these decos along, Bonnie! For the one that just says "add & pass," do you want it to go back to you? Or who? Apologies for taking a bit to comment back. I'm behind!

Awww thank you Bonnie! I am glad you enjoy everything. Don't worry, Lion's Tooth will be waiting for you when you are ready. (Check them out on IG too @lionstoothmke).  And your kind words are amazing. Thank you!

I saw your post on FeMailArt and I am sending you some beads. I have so much stuff in my art room...it is good to get rid of them. I expect nothing in return but more mail art down the road.
