ATC's received from Mr. No Idea

A great haul of varied ATC's arrived in recent weeks.  Thanks so much Mr. No Idea.  My ATC book filled half a page with these beauties.

Bonnie Bonzine mini 'zine arrived!

A bonanza of Bonnie-ness arrived with a mini journal of information about Bonnie's practice.... who knew about the days of clowning and making suggestive X rated balloon hats for adults?

I might be crazy but . . .

I just bought and brought back to running condition this 1901-1905 vintage No. 27 Singer Treadle machine with the Sphinx decals in fair shape and look forward to using it in mixed media and fabric art creations.…

Bits from the Art Desk of Robin Jeree received in Toronto!

A postcard of interesting random scraps from the art table of Robin Jeree.  It's a bit like archaeology thinking about the projects that led to these bits and pieces.

Stained "glass" postcard received from Heide Monster

Well I'll be darned, a translucent postcard!  This beauty came in the mail last week with a note from Heide.  Many thanks for this creative use of a piece of acrylic sheeting!

Have to look out something special to send back.

Sewn recyclables from Ruth Giles

Last month I received a lovely and colourful sewn beauty from Ruth Giles.  The universe is tempting me to unfold my sewing machine (if only I removed all the boxes of art supplies on top of it.) But this sort of project makes me want to sew things!  Thank you so much, Ruth! …

Beautiful Butterflies from Greece

Thank you so much Katerina.   I LOVE Butterflys!

In other news, I am trying to turn over a new leaf today and catch up with my lagging documentation!  I could try blaming my husband who keeps moving my piles but then 'tis I leaving things in piles ;-)…

Received Zine No. 5 from Bonniediva

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…

Received from Triboulet

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.…

Knocked out by Norma's fabric ATC and mixed media card

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! …

Jules S. Gone Crazy

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. …

Massive Mail Art Package from Mindaugas.

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.…

Jayne B. Lyons Vintage Johnny Card

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. …

Bonniediva March Bonanza

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.
