From Stephanie and Laura -- they both used clear, see-thru handmade envelopes and
Hello stickers and both are really cool.....
I don't believe these two mail artists know each other -- perhaps I should introduce them.

When I see an envelope from Planet Susanna in my mailbox I get excited.
A wonderful collaborative artist book -- with a photo I took on the cover!
Here is a look inside!
Be sure to check out her blog -- it is very inspiring.
Not one -- but two envelopes with zines from Alice S...and a little something from Sally.
Christine H knows how much I like oddly flavored KitKats - these
are wasabi KitKats -- but I think she ate them all because I only got the wrappings...
From South Africa -- check out that stamp! Very fun -- at first I thought it said
International Snail Mail...I guess you sometimes see what you want to see..
Another beauty from Stephanie (IUOMA) arrived just today -- a handmade
pop-up book in another clear envelope.
This is so cool and just my type. Thanks Stephanie!
Something will go out to you soon.
From Carol W - a great Year of the Snake postcard. She printed this edition somehow...
lino print? I don't know but I am sure happy I got one.
Origami lanterns with calligraphy
I had to go over to the Flower Market and Street Fair in Chinatown on Saturday.
Lunar New Year is such a great time in SF.
Flowers, citrus, red and gold decorations, lion dancers, food, fun...

Oh yes--I do think a mail artist could find some good supplies inside this shop.
|Who could pass up these beautiful gift envelopes?|
Certainly not I.
Love the citrus too -- pomolos, Buddha's Hands, kumquats -- I bet I could stick a
mailing label on one of these babies and send it off!
Of course, there is always lunch, and on a cold day some hot and sour soup
really warms you up.....
