  1. NOTE: Sometimes viewers post a comment on an archived swap that is so far back, I doubt anyone will see it. Perhaps this confuses things, but I have started posting them second-handedly here, on the Comments page. Also, to help keep the Informal Swap page uncluttered, I am posting people's comments here instead of there. Honi

  3. Of interest: Beau has just pointed out that, if you want to review your mail art history over the past five years (or less), or if you want to see all of your favorite mail artist's work on this site, you can go to the SEARCH box about 3/4 of the way down on the right side of the Home page (It's just below the MMSA square logo.) and type in a name (usually just a first name), or an art topic, etc. At the bottom of each page, click on the "Next Page" prompt to continue. Have fun wandering down memory lane! Honi

  4. Thank you Inta, for your wonderful altered Rolodex card. I love the array of postage stamps. I think we have discussed once before how much we both love using them on our cards. I am so happy to have this card. Be well and happy swapping.

  6. ATTENTION: Some of the Just Paint post cards will be received with the sender's return address covered with a white label. My postmistress informed me that the automated machines "read" the mail from the bottom up (That's why we keep the bottom 1/4" clear), and then they sort accordingly. If return addresses are placed at the bottom left of our art, we may very well receive our own art back. The correct placement of return addresses is in the UPPER left hand corner. Just so everyone knows :) Honi

  13. It was recently brought to my attention that there may be some interest in finding out what other mail artists are doing. I was wondering if any of the MMSA participants would like to have their blogsite link or other links made available on some sort of list we could put together here on the site. Please send me your thoughts, comments and suggestions regarding whether a list of links would be useful. I hope all are enjoying the transition of the seasons. Honi

  18. I have a "Just Paint" card from Yayoi, with no email address on it, so I can't email to let her know I have it. It's a great card, orange and brownish, with dark burgundy dots down one side...or across the bottom, depending on how you hold it, lol.

  32. GAUDY Swap mail art pieces have entered the postal system. I enclosed some in cellophane wrappers, affixing "non-machinable" postage in hopes that they would receive special handling and not have to go through any bending/sorting/processing machines. Thanks to all who participated. Honi
