ATC with hand carved stamp of my Pekingese Daisy Hand carved stamp of my Corgi

I love that mailart has exposed me to many different styles, many different artists, many different perspectives.

I like exchanging naked postcards and I usually do 5 x 7 inches in size. I find that size offers enough space to experiment while still being affordable to mail to someone. I like the postcards naked so the address, postage stamps and other postal markings are part of the piece.

I also make a lot of ATCs. I meet with a local group to exchange ATCs monthly.




I like ...

  • Dogs (I have a Pembroke Corgi and 2 Pekingese)
  • Clowns
  • Zebras
  • Favorite color - orange
  • ATCs made by YOU (I love them)
  • Bus passes (used)
  • Tickets (new or used)
  • Ephemera

* Life Aquatic with Steve zissou - all of it but especially Claus, the submarine thingy, the ship profile, Eleanor
* Star Trek - DS9 (Kira, Captain Sisko), NG - Enterprise D
* Survivor - Tikis, immunity necklaces and Jeff Probst
* Jason Bourne - Matt Damon as Bourne
* Firefly - Mel, Inara, Jayne, the ship, all of it
* Princes Bride - the movie
* Vanity Faire with Reese Witherspoon
* Spaced - British Television series * Dawn of the Dead (2004), Shaun of the Dead, World War Z, Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, 28 Days later, 28 weeks later, and most things zombies
* Joseph Cornell assemblages --
* Paul Klee -
* Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger
* Scion xB - 2nd generation, my car is black
* Bjork - Favorite song is Dull flame of desire that she sings with Anohni Hegarty.
* I enjoy getting hand made pieces. I will love anything you make yourself.

If you look at my Flickr photos or my Flickr favorites you'll get an idea of my eclectic tastes. I'm not easily offended but please don't try (to offend me). I just mean that I'm pretty open minded.

Comment: I don't know about her Mom, but your featured woman looks like a no- nonsense gal who puts no stock in superstitions at all! Her hat reminds me of the Che Guevara beret I got in Cuba! Thank you for a great card and for hosting the swap, Angie. PS: your rooster stamp is way better than the USPS version!
Comment: Thank you for your very fast and lovely giraffes! And also thanks for introducing layout templates.

Comment: Love it! Thanks
Comment: Thanks for the great package of papers, Angie! I'm going to rip them all up and glue them into my sketch book tonight, I like having a bunch of randomly collaged pages ready for playing with whenever the urge comes. That braille paper though... You're my only source for that!

Comment: Angie, thank you so much for all of the great security envelope papers! I love all of them and there are some that I haven't ever seen before. A special thanks for the zebra atc! I'm so happy to get him! I wish I could give you more hearts!
Watsonc7 rated for CC: Image transfer technique USA on Feb 17, 2017
Comment: Awww Angie, I actually really like your postcard!! It's like a llama ghost, so awesome that you sent me a llama! The collage is awesome too, seriously. I had a pretty hard time with finding a good technique too but I ended up printing on wax paper and rubbing it onto my postcard...I had to carefully seal it and hope it didn't run. I hope you do actually host it again lol, we will all have an understanding of how tricky it is and that something freakish might come out of our attempts...sweet!
Response: Thank you for the kind rating. I've tried this technique so many times and watched videos and read instructionals - it's just not my thing I guess. LOL. Yours (on flickr) turned out great!
AmookIslandCreations rated for MA: Drawing Practice on Feb 15, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the doggy postcard. Are these your fur babies? Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

stephiedee rated for MPU: February Happy Mail on Feb 13, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the happy mail and note, Angie. I love all the stampings on the outer envelope...and the Valentine's card and ATC are cute. (Can't tell what February thing inspired the ATC, but it's cool all the same.) Thanks.
Response: Hi Steph. Thanks for the kind rating. The notecard is Valentine's themed - with the hearts and what not.
Comment: Always one of my fav swaps - thanks for the fun ATC. Cheers!
Response: I like this swap too and I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the kind rating!
Comment: Thanks for the great ATC! I love the elephant stamp. Where is it from?
Response: I was afraid you were going to ask that. I tracked it down - it's a French company called Katzelkraft. http://www.katzelkraft.fr Thanks for the nice rating.
Comment: Thanks for the elegant zebra dude ATC with such cool ephemera! Your envie arrived in pieces in a body bag from the USPS. I had to patch together your note, but the ATC itself was unscathed. Appreciate the artistamps on the envie too, even though the postal machinery took a toll on them.

Comment: Awesome rooster artistamp!
oblivionspin rated for mpu: draw a thing (PC) on Jan 27, 2017
Comment: I actually really like the effect of the pencil drawing on the back, it looks like one of those fancy postcards that prints the image from the front ever so lightly on the back. Your drawing turned out well! I can tell what everything is, even your tiny easel and bottle of glue. :D thanks for joining in the fun!
Response: Hee hee! THanks so much for the kind words. Did you find my not-a-pet mouse? He's sort of not to scale ...
