As part of catch-up I confess and seek absolution for the late reporting of the safe arrival of Bonnie's 'Zine No. 5 along with a just stunning ATC (love it, Bonnie!) an oval collaged card and a nice poem. In all, a generous fat package. I'm so out of synch that I don't know if I've sent something back so I'll put it on my "to send" list. Better send twice than not at all is my motto. I replace my phone last month and it has taken me awhile to get the new phone set up and before that my…Continue

Altered photos in a fold-out Dada-esque format from Triboulet. This bum here is catching up on documenting some mail art received over the past few weeks as I have gotten behind again. I owe you mail, Triboulet (I think, my records are also shite) so I will get something out to you in my next mailing.…Continue

In the mail today, two terrific mail art pieces from Norma Soulet!
I love the colour palette in both of these. Blues, violets and yellows have always called to me. The fabric and stitchery ATC is just a mavel. It was also one of those moments when you look at a piece and think "I would totally put these elements together in EXACTLY the same way". . . Norma, you speak my language! Thank you so much! …Continue

Received a card from Jules S. about 1-2 weeks ago with a humorous message of temporary insanity. I have sent something back Jules, but I have no memory of what or when. If you don't receive anything I have obviously totally hallucinated the whole thing. I wrote it in my log without the details. …Continue

I am speechless as in not actually able to describe everything in the fat envelope from Mindaugas. A postcard, some Fluxus bucks (I really need to circulate some of these back to the network) a page of arti-stamps, some small art bits and a nice collection of trashpo in the form of beer labels, old lottery cards and coupons.…Continue

The song urges "Johnny Get Your Hair Cut" in this circa 1940's or '50's pop song music sheet. Nice find, Jayne, and a belated thanks for your lovely card.
My cellphone seems to be at death's door and so I have been having issues getting snaps done and posted in a timely manner. Only the need to clean up some heaps before I get totally confused (some would say "too late" about that) has spurred me into action. …Continue
Received with thanks from Bonniediva about a week ago, a package containing a signature vintage card, an ATC and assorted happy mail items that I have sorted into two potential collage piles now, but not sure I will not re-sort again.

Two lovely decos arrived via Norma Soulet. Norma's pages are so gorgeous that I haven't figured out what to add yet.

I received a couple of weeks ago (catching up on documentation here) a really interesting Jester card from Triboulet.
I took him up on his challenge to send a Jester back and although I've never drawn a Jester before, I came up with this character, but not liking my background, I cut her out and put her on a painted sheet I had lying…Continue
This week I received a generous package of intriguing digital art cards from Fike (great composition!) and the best envelope ever from Richard Baudet with a super hand-painted watercolour card inside.

Last week I received a lovely package containing a postcard and a holiday snapshot from Italy from that most tireless of Mail Artists, Bonniediva.

Over the holidays as mail started to flow again in Canada, I received a collage card and small booklet from Claudia as well as a few bits of valuable ephemera.

Received over the holidays with thanks to Bonniediva, a fascinating 'zine and a decoration for our tree.
I really appreciated the holiday card from Mail Art Martha. What a great labour of love to select one work from each sender and make it work over 2 collages of images.
Lovely golden leaves and some Fluxxus bucks arrived from Katerina in the local break in the rotating postal strike.
Thank you, Katerina, I will send something back at the earliest opportunity. Mail here is a bit unpredictable due to the strike. …Continue
Wonderful tiny art from Mindaugas in Lithuania match the beauty of the art stamps on the envelope, and some more in his series of silk screens on factory bills of lading. I just stared and stared at the tiny art. …Continue

Bejewelled feather, old writing and a smudged photo reminds me of the box of photos on my own shelf of "unknown people" awaiting identification still. Thank you, Bonnie, this is lovely and gave me a nudge to sort and scan some more of my treasure trove of photos dating back more than a hundred years.…Continue

I am just surfacing after a job change that required me to basically be working two jobs which also training my replacement. Crazy busy and stressy!
And there's a mail strike here! Nevertheless between rotating strikes a couple of things have arrived including a lovely Triptych from Introverted Post. Formidable guard on the front. …Continue
