Dear Kathy, your Lady with the special hungry pot plant arrived! So delicate with all these open mouths! Your creations are a real miracle! At the moment I am experimenting with a new kind of monotype and so I will send you an example soon!

I hope you are quite well and healthy! Enjoy your garden and do not dig so much!

Hugs Charlotte

Hi Kathy, I had just put a card in the post office for Missouri, when I discovered a new envelope with 4 bathing beauties in my mail-box! Incredible wonderful! Immediately I had to think at the film with Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell where they wear these sexy bathing suits! Thanks so much! Your fantasy is so fascinating, I love it!!!

At the moment I am sewing face masks on end, but I will think about something for you! Stay healthy and creative! And 1000 Thanks (I am always thrilled like a school girl when I discover an envelope of yours in the mail-box) Fat hugs

Dear Kathy, today your magnificent fat little boy with his monkey friends arrived! Your movable mail art is always such fun and joy to me, these small monkeys and the unfriendly looking boy with his claws is such a fantastic combination! Thanks very very much! And you will not believe it, but my brother and I had just such a monkey, that you could pull up with a key and then it jumped to and fro and clapped his instrument. When I opened the envelope and took a look I remembered our old monkey for the first time after long years! So thank you again. I hope you are quite well. Here the weather is wonderful, but much too dry. We have a blue sky since 2-3 weeks and warm temperatures and you can look and see the trees blooming and growing. At monday my husband has to start teaching with half of the class and the the higher classes, that will pass an exam in the summer. It is all rather difficult to manage with this distance problems.

Take care of your self and have some fun! I will send something soon!

Best wishes and hugs

Hi Kathy, Thanks for your news! here in the middle of Germany is everything much quieter. We live near the city and there was always a lot of talking and singing from people coming home from the pubs. Now the nights are really silent and I can sleep very well! my husband war working with his pupils via internet but it was rather special for him because you cannot reach the boys and girls directly and you must have quite a lot of material to present. I am happy that I just not cope with these challenge anymore! But I had to cancel my painting course and so there is a hole in my bag.Stay safe and pay attention! Hugs and smiles

Dear Kathy, thanks so much for your magnificent dancing robot! I am really a fan of your interactive mailart! He will join the lady with the snake, that is hanging in front of my desk! And don't harm yourself in the garden! Sometimes I am quite sad, that we have only a small balcony that is the home for a dozen tomato plants, but when I am thinking about it, it is just enough! I have printed and experimented quite a lot the last days, so I will look for some thing nice to send to you! You are really one of the best! Stay creative and don't get sick! Many, many hugs

Dear Kathy, yesterday your wonderful artistic snake-lady arrived in a rather deranged envelope, that was held together by the post office , but I think everything arrived unharmed, even the sweet coloured lollipop! But I think it must have taken some time to come to me! Thanks sooo much the lady has found a pretty place at the wall in front of my working place; it is so inspiring to look at! 

I am always thrilled when I find an envelope of you in my post-office, always a great joy and surprise! Hope the New Year has started peacefully for you, dear Kathy!

Best wishes and a lot of warm hugs from a grey Germany , Charlotte

No solution to the mystery mail art from Atte Ourie,

no return address, no profile page, no website, ...so we just enjoy getting it.

(we know it comes from Helsinki, Norway...)

Kathy, the  Sticker Dude address is wrong. I suspect he does  not check his page.

Today I received an envelope from him and the return address is

70 West 36th St. %th floor New York NY 10018.

I will remind him when I write to him for Valentine's Day, my next post goes out around the end of January

can't remember if I acknowledged getting your wonderful umbrella envelope with the delightful mermaid with cat and umbrella inside--another  clever and fun movable image.  LOVE them!   So sorry for your loss of our father.  I know how that can then lead to so many other things to handle afterwards.  I am working on getting to making mail art to send back to ou and plan to use at least one of the fun old National Geographic images you sent me!   Should be fun to make and hopefully fun for you to eventually get.

A scuba diving cat and tiny octopi along with a note...? How do you do it...? Thank you for making me smile today Kathy and I wish you some peace in November when you can turn inward - take care you you too!

I'm so stoked to be the new caretaker of an articulated alligator! Thank you for sending him to me. I've named him Bert. Here he is sunning in the backyard...
