"at least they didn't cancel the stamp...i always thought this was a bigger problem with mail within the US, but i'm not sure why i think that. maybe because that was the first incidence of mail being nixied i'd heard about?"

"Disheartening+shocking. We know this has become a USPS issue with some international mailings, certainly bad enough, but now within the US?!? You have to wonder if the USPS is so under-staffed and under-machined in recent years (ahem) that workers…"

"NIXIE,NIXIE,NIXIE! How frustrating...and loss of postage money, too :-( I had several returned from USPS, maybe because of too many rubber stampings, and the "machines" didn't read the address , how sad!"

"is it possible some postal centers need the zipcode on its own line?   if this is true, it is not a universally known fact!  just a guess, of course!   i put the zip on its own line, only because my handwriting is spread out."

"The main difference is that a Deco book has a theme that the originator sets. For example, I recently worked on a Deco that had a Frida Kahlo theme."

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
My Website (without http://):
http://see my YouTube channel, Bonniediva
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 56 with the mind of a 16 year old and the heart of a lion...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 letter, 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!
