Another envelope...this from Mim Golub Scalin with "mim'imal" inside!

Mim has done an amazing job of recycling MY envelope to her, so with the postage sticker from the USA, I still get those Greek stamps (which are new issue and which i did not have before) Thanks Mim!

And what about this "taped" card?

Who will find the "meaning" for "Beyond Don't"?

Don't go Beyond....or...what exists beyond "Don't"?…

A Japanese papers-n-print-overflowing envelope from Ms,Lovender in Japan!

Ms.Lovender, aka Heavenly angel, sent some beautiful textured Japanese papers, which I am not sure if I will be able to use...'may wish to keep them and not send them out as origami or collage. It will be difficult for me to part with such delicate papers. Also in the envelope were papers with fun images with bunnies and bears. These I have already in mind the creation of…

Most Days happen just like that. Most days are just Blanks and Fragments of Days, proportions variable. 

What happens in the Zalop Space inbetween? Is life happening in bursts of Time?

Who Inspires Your Art.

So I was thinking of who or what inspires your art.

Here is what I mean, I started dating,( 3 months ago ), this wonderful guy, he is kind and considerate and, ( ok enough with how I can go on about him, lol ) thoughtful. We were sitting on the balcony watching the sunset just over the house tops, and he says to me how much he loves sunsets, I too love them I replied. Which started me thinking as to how would I make or do sunsets in my art.


I took out my paint and…

Rare choco mail - from Katerina Nikoltsou

New developments in Haptic World. I am honored to get this rare piece of choco glam from Katerina, number 212 of her project 365. I think this greek chocolate is way too rare to be eaten :-)) and it looks great on the card, so I think I shouldn't be too greedy this time.

Pencil shavings, what a fab idea, Katerina. It must be hell to get them glued on the card though...…
