Werewolf Bonanza this week from Erni Bar!

I have been so lucky over the past week to receive all these haptic pieces from the most enlightened Werewolf I know.  Ernie always uses such intriguing images for his trashpo and I laughed so hard when he sent a piece of the box I sent him back to me, along with a piece of pink duct tape I used on the same box I love the concept of morphing mail art taking on a life of its' own.… Continue

Haptic Werewolf goes Metallic

Got this haptic card from Erni. It doesn't show in the picture, but it is silver. I think Lucky Lucy is the actual Rocket, but I'm not sure. Thank you Ernie!

Text Collage from KDJ

I love this collage with the muted colors and so many different layers of text. She sent me "happy hints for a safe and enjoyable summer" such as what to do in case you are in a stampede of bulls and what to do if you come across a bee hive. Thank you KDJ!

Trashpo direct from Helen Amye's Studio

The pic doesn't do it justice, but amazingly this postcard made of handmade paper, arrived completely in tact. As she said, if it had gotten banged up it would only have enhanced it as it is trashpo. There are asemics in here and a little bit of everything. Everything on top looks like what you would use to make handmade paper. Thank you…

Greatest Ever Foodpo MA from Angie

Yes, today this very squishy FoodPo came from Angie. I can't even believe they let her mail this, but she tells the story of searching for trash for trashpo and continually seeing this pristine piece of American Cheese IN the wrapper no less on the sidewalk/street. It called to her many times as she walked past it. She finally listened to her inner voice and trashpo instincts… Continue

Evidence of a trashpo convert

I told Angie she was far too humble when she called this her 'attempt' at trashpo. I think it is very great and philosophical really made me think. I am definately keeping this as Proof of my existence, which I often question.  She confessed to digging through the trash which proves to me that she is now hooked. Trashpo not only lives, it is contagious!! What a glorious day this… Continue

Paper or Plastic Haptic from Erni Bar

This definately looks like an article from the Haptic Newspaper. Print says "Off Scene Academie" which seems appropriate.  I imagine the headline to be "Will the plasticization of America be our legacy?" Thanks Erni-not sure what Tartex is, but it sounds interesting

Marcela Queen of Sandpo

Resident Sandpo saint spreading the gospel of sand. The envelop came with all sort of wonderful things-Angie has posted many of the items. A beautiful white out sandpo piece was included but didn't photograph well. Thank you so much Marcella!
