Mailart From Mike Parsons

This was cool! I wondered why he put his post card inside a sleeve, until I pulled it out and it unfolded.

Front, middle, and back…

Also enclosed were an add & pass she’s just launching and another that she’s worked on and is passing.…

Katerina’s here with tea and cookies!

You, Katerina, are my hero! Nobody else sends me tea and cookies...not even virtual ones. There’s a wide variety. How about a pot of green tea, a box of Goody Homemade Stories, And three add and passes to work on? After that, I’ll shovel my stuff off the table, wash my sweater by hand, and go to bed! …

Gobsmacked!

So, This arrived yesterday, but I didn’t have time to post about it till now. It was slit open along the top, but filled with so much mailart! Really, really top drawer stuff, but I can’t show you all of it because along the line between opening and posting I was adding & passing, cutting and pasting , and generally shuffling stuff across the table.

I’m dazzled.

I’ve already put some in the mailbox to move on tomorrow but I have been able to gather this much together to…

Dear friends,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am meting out parts of my life in small portions, I’m trying to do tiny bits of things whenever I can snatch some time. For instance, I’m a little behind in posting about mailart received, I’m sending out little bits as I can, and generally dealing with other obligations the same way.

We just had a bit of a disaster at our house yesterday afternoon. We had our furnace ducts cleaned for the first time since the house was built in 1901. The ducts are…

I See You, Uta Richter!

well, now I know what Uta looks like!  That’s Uta on the bottom  right. I think it’s fun to be able to connect a face with the mailart, so thank you!

As you can see, Uta also sent postcards featuring her art and galleries. Isn’t the one with the plants beautiful? I always wanted to live in the atrium at the National Gallery of Art, but the guard told me they make all the visitors vacate at closing time. But, but I wouldn’t be “visiting” if I moved in would I? That’s when he started…

Carlyle Baker (AKA Acme) Sent This toMe!

Golly!  That’s a lot of mailart in one envelope, and it is all noteworthy. Seeing this makes me really wish my book about copier art hadn’t disappeared. Also makes Acme would relocate in Colorado and let me be his apprentice!…

Judith Dagan Is IN The House!

Woohoo! My first mailart from Judith, my first mailart from Israel! She says that they played Jackson Pollack for a day. Sounds good to me. I got a gorgeous card, an unidentifiable happy-making critter and a bonanza of colorful paper scraps out of the deal!  My greedy heart rejoices! I will use them in outgoing mailart.…

Julie Dennehy—All That And a Notebook Paper Hole Reinforcer!

Guess which part made me happiest! I really, really needed the NPHR. In fact I was just asking a friend if these had gone extinct. Julie, you’re a lifesaver(probably butterscotch). You just saved a very important piece of paper.

And mailart goodies after my own heart! Behold the back of the envelope—most impressive—as was the contents. Thanks, Julie!…

Variety From Gerda Osteneck

Wow! Gerda sent some of everything this time.

There’s an Add&Pass with scanner images, a Canadian Tire 10 cent cash bonus, and two Asian playing cards in the first picture 

A fascinating sewn music page envelope that’s been watercolored, and with pretty stamps that the post office made sure to almost obliterate with cancellations. I’m…

First mail from Kathieh (KHM)

I think I have a new best friend! KHM likes black Sharpie lines on brownish colored paper, dots, and mailart that puts you in a zen space while you make it and I do too!  She sent me an envelope featuring several of these. And as a gift, an envelope that is really, really giving me ideas, as well as a label ready to use on outgoing mail. How kind!…
