Received! 11302020 Josh Ronsen

Another exciting introduction 

via mail! Josh included a neat zine made up of 

completed A&P sheets, cut and pasted so that 

page of the zine is a detail of a larger work. Also

included, an invitation to download some noise/experimental music from Austin musicians!!

Absolutely fab!! Thanks Josh…

may she find someone to pass to

Sending this ATC to someone who returned some A&P's (her addition included) with an apology that she didn't have anyone to pass them along to :( 

I suggested she check out IUOMA for contacts, as well as included a couple address stickers a couple of you sent me to share. Hopefully she joins us on here and gains some collaborators!…

it's been a meditative beginning

I've been really enjoying the slow focus that carving stamps requires. This is my current collection of handmade stamps soon to continue growing! Preparing for a long correspondence art session I'm about to begin today, I wanted to lay out my stamps and supplies and reflect on my progress so far…
