Went to visit the post office and for the first time argued with the ladies there. They took exception to my card to Samantha Price, said it wasn't bendy enough. Well duh, that's why I put the extra postage on it for non machinable. But, I couldn't send it as is. Does this call for a disguise and trying again with a different clerk? should I give in and wrap it as a package and send it that way? Don't worry Sam! I haven't forgotten you. I'd preview It for you but that would be…Continue

The other day at work I found a few dozen envelopes in the trash and rescued them (well, duh!) They are all sorts of pastel colors, Probably from greeting cards.

Yesterday amongst the boring junk there arrived a new (to me) name in MA, James Chester. At first glance, I thought it might be envelope art, nothing inside. But it was folded and taped with washi, intriguing! So I unfolded it.
Inside was a painted map. ( It didn't fit in my flat bed scanner, sorry I chopped off one end). This is how an…
I received mail from Judi and Judy,(Dagan and Staroscik) which makes me think there is something to this Saturday the 13th business...Both do collages, and while both do careful craftsmanship, they definitely have their own styles. …Continue
