Blue Blogjam from Superhero, Amy irwin, and Ekaterina!!!

It just so happened that all the mail I received in one day was blue. Maybe Kat's love of sea blue is seeping into the collective unconscious. I received a wonderful envelope from Amy Irwen with these ATCs in it. The ATC holder was made by Angie. The Blue Trashpo is from Kat and I'm loving how she is including bits of trash stapled on the back for use in making trashpo. I…

Amazing Bus Stop Find from Tallie

She found this near a city bus stop and captions it "oh what a tangled web" *trash--not dishonesty"

From what I can make out it says

"Lack of Honesty

THAT would make me betray them and lose all trust

My family would stop talking to…

Rusty Key Impressions from Pedro Bericat

This most interesting piece arrived from Pedro. I love anything laminated and these impressions of keys appear to be made with some kind of glue. He has left only the impressions of the keys and not the keys themselves. I need to figure out how to record a sound byte for his sound project         Thank you…

Ode to Rudyard Kipling by Carina

Carina's combo of vintage sheet music and this priceless photo of the woman with 3D glasses is amazing. Her red stitching makes me think of Marie and writing the poem to go with the music seems to be a whole new genre in itself--altered sheet music! Thank  you…

Romantic Greeting from Switzerland

Received this  inviting piece from Janine! It is made with tissue paper, paint, and some other transparent textured overlay. It is warm like her and very Fall-ish. Maybe it is Fall in Switzerland?

My husbands response when he saw this card was, "So does she think you're a crazy cat lady?" I said No, she knows I am. I'm impressed Snooky allowed her to create this collage homage montage to felidae. he must be very secure in his doghood. thank you Angie! This brightened my…

Art from Svenja--sealed with a bunny (and tape)

Received this signature piece from the wonderful, rabbit loving, Svenja! Not sure if the female figures are transparencies, tape transfers or what, but I love the combo with the German text. the back has her rabbit stamp and a kind stamped note to the postbot "Please deliver to my IOUMA friend" that simple phrase really warmed my heart. Always a pleasure to receive mail from…

Oh so Elegant Card from Angie

I do not know what language this is, but love the combo of imagery Angie has used here. This looks similar to the style of Bifidus Jones and at first that is who I thought this was from. Angie thanks me for keeping her multi-positions at DKult open and based on…
