On the Last-day-of-the-old-year-good-mail-art-day! No.3: from Cheryl Penn1

Now, this is AMAZING (because it finally arrived). If I read the postal cancellation correctly, it is stamped December 9, 2010...read backwards, or right to left: 2010-12-09? Oh dear, South Africa and Greece have to wait once-a-month post, while Germany gets mail art before I can return from the post office! sigh...Such is life in our World/Town! Well, the wait is so well worth it! This is Cheryl at her best...wonderfully layers and elegant textures of "rice paper" and hand-made pulp…

On the Last-day-of-the-old-year-good-mail-art-day! No.1 from Herr Erni!

'Tis amazing how quickly we can communicate via "snail mail" between Germany and Greece. It shows how "very well organized" they are, and that they are "doing a very good job" at what they do (both postal services...plus the 5-10 daily flights direct to Thessaloniki helps, I am sure!) Well, on this the last day of the old year, it is so appropriate to receive this happy haptic package fro Herr Erni! Needs much study and reflections, and wondrous images appear and then too, many questions…

On the Last-day-of-the-old-year-good-mail-art-day! No.2 from Dortmund! An Amazing surprise!

Last year, at the end of 2009 going into 2010, Banana Man was very active here at IUOMA. And I do miss his photographic "portraits" and other "bananamania". So it was with happy surprise that this very "Haptic" card arrived on this very last day of 2010. Many elements have been recycled from other mail artists, and the entire piece is a rare collection and reminder of dear mail art friends. Thank you, Wolfgang!

(and see, the mail service is sooooo quick from (Dortmund) Germany, too!…

Greek blue and white from Wisconsin and Lake Michigan to the Aegean Sea here! Thank you Angie!

Snooky Dog (ATC) came along for the ride and brought me this beauty from Angie

When open, it has that wonderful "SEE THROUGH" element that brings us to a "KOSMOS"

of twirling worlds and delicate threads.

The textured "cover"…

28 days into the project and 'have mail art from 4 great "365"ers! Nos.2 + 3 and 12 + 13...butterflies in winter!

As of today, with the arival of No.12, I now have a collection of 4 "365"ers. Amazing is the fact that, without any set theme by the group, still these four cards are "butterflies" and flowers and blossoms, in cold WINTER! (Well, ok, I "added" the butterfly over Jennie Hinchcliff's "X", but butterflies abound!) Upper RIGHT is 2/365 from Rani, lower right is 3/365 from…

Another beauty of a tape transfer from Jon Foster



Look carefully to spot the basis of this composition...yes there are the lips puckered, and yet another face or two. But look deeper...beautiful layered effect! And there emerges Henri Matisse's "La Danse"! Amazing things coming from Jon! Many…
