2 great envelopes from Guido Vermeulen

The first painted  envelope with "Sweet Dream Buddie" arrived with a note saying that a larger one was on its way. Guido also has a very distinctive style, African yet South Oceanic symbolic work.

The second large envelope was rained on so a bit tattered at the edges with the paint smeared, but as Guido said it was a great collaboration with the Rain God..... Thanks for these Guido!…

As Free As A Thought from Karin Greenwood

Karen's distinctive characters with their naive quality never cease to please me. All her cards are painstakingly handdrawn, painted, or printed using so many different techniques, they are wonderful and I am always glad when her envelopes arrive in my postbox. Thanks my friend.…

A Sunset with Death - from David Stafford


I was rather puzzled by this card when I opened my mailbox and had to actually ask David if he was sick and dying :-))

I was relieved to hear that all was well for him. After reading his message I thought that he had indeed sent it to the right person. Some people think about death much more often than others do. About the constant threat that is lying…

17 - from Vaida Adiav

I only found out very recently about Vaida's work and she has such a refined, elegant style. This piece with a page from Othello, beautiful stitching and ink stamps is a real goodie (and my first mail from Lithuania!). Thank you Vaida!

Bones of Contention book by Cheryl Penn

I had a gentle reminder from She Who Must Be Obeyed that I had not blogged her beautiful book yet. As it is not strictly Mail Art I had not thought to show it to you all in IUOMA, but as we have had some other Bones of Contention works here it is. I am so so honoured that the book was made specially for me, using some images from a collaborative book that Cheryl and I had done in 2009. The pages are made from another of Cheryl's books that she took apart and remade the paper. Using her…
