I’m finally recovering from the lurgy that’s held me hostage since New Year’s Eve, and am back in the driving seat. I won’t go on about making New Year Resolutions and promising to blog more this year… that’d just be setting myself up for a fall, and I don’t want blogging to become a chore. I should blog more often, but then I should be doing a lot of things that I never seem to have the time or energy to implement. So, I’ll just say that I hope to blog more in 2013 – and to do some blog-worthy stuff! I don’t think you’d really want to hear about my ‘The Inbetweeners’ marathon on Netflix, or how I managed to hurt myself 3 times this morning just walking into the office. Or would you?
Anyhoo, this week I have only one outgoing Mail Art package to show, but thankfully a handful of creative and colourful incoming pieces to share with you…

It’s been a while since my last Mail Art Monday post, and I’ve had a lot of catching up to do! Work commitments have left me with no time to blog, but I did steal some minutes to post out some Mail Art over the past month, and together with the masses of wonderful mail I’ve received I have LOTS to show you! Please forgive me for not writing much about some of these – they are all VERY appreciated, and I have enjoyed receiving and studying them all. But, y’know, it’s Christmas Eve, and there’s a lot to get through. So [...]

I’m still catching up with owed mailart, and my list is shrinking! After a much needed sortout (and supply cull) in my studio this weekend, I’ve managed to get a fair few cards in the post.
Here’s a roundup of the Mail Art that’s reached new homes this week…

Here’s a roundup of the Mail Art that’s been coming and going this week.

Well, after last week’s bumper edition of Mail Art, this bank holiday I don’t have a whole lot to show you! Not in quantity, anyway, but the quality of the stuff I’ve received make up for it, and will hopefully brighten your day as they did mine (even if the heavens have opened upon the UK ‘summer… again). I’ll start off, as always, with the Outgoing mail that arrived at new homes this past week… OUTGOING Jon Foster received this card, which I simply titled ‘Shout’. Tarah – Miss Thundercat (Canada) received an envelope made from newspaper, filled with Mail Art materials. I also [...]

Regular readers might have noticed that there was no Mail Art Monday post last week. That’s because time ran away with me, work got hectic, and I just didn’t get the chance… sorry about that! There is a silver lining though… this week’s post is a bumper edition! OUTGOING Katerina Nikoltsou (Greece) received some of her beloved blue, this time in the form of a Trashpo colour study. Suus in Mokum (Amsterdam), glen e. lizardi f. (Chile) and Terrie Purkey (USA) received slices of this collage… … while Nadine Wendell-Mojica , Vizma Bruns (Australia), James Chester and Thom Courcelle (USA) each received a quarter of this trashpo collage. Good friend [...]

Things are finally starting to get back to normal after the wonderfully long bank holiday, a two day working week and a beer festival. So, I start off my long, 5 days of work with a rather awesome collection of art that’s been whizzing around the globe this past week. OUTGOING First off, 3 postcards made from a large collage found their way to Suus in Mokum (Netherlands), Laura Daniels and Stripygoose (both in the UK). Valentine Mark Herman received a set of 4 game themed Arty Slides for display in his upcoming exhibition in Sigean, France. Pen-pal Christa Sagmoe in the US received my [...]

The Easter Bank Holiday weekend has left my mailbox a little emptier than last week, but postie has still been rather busy… OUTGOING A bit of a random one to start. Cadbury’s Chocolate are holding an Olympics themed competition, providing postcards with a blank area to ‘Write your message of support [...] to keep Team GB pumped!’ Not sure this is exactly what they had in mind, but I couldn’t resist taking advantage of the pre-paid postage! My reply to Michalis Kotsaris finally arrived. I made this postcard out a photograph from a magazine and a headline from another to [...]

It’s been another busy week for the postal service around the world, and I’ve had many ‘Good Mail Days’. OUTGOING I started the week off with a big MIAOW for Erni Bär, made from an old ad. It got a bit battered on its way over to Germany… maybe someone dared to try and put the cat back in the bag and a claw fight to the death ensued. You never know. A reply went out to Jim SantAmour in the US, who sent a photograph postcard to me a couple of weeks ago. I made this postcard out of the same ad as the [...]
