It is always a sincere pleasure to receive a genuine "Happy Spring" mail packet from the wonderful Frips. She always manages to capture a peculiar sense of character to her Heebee Jeebee Mail Art that is sent here. Have to admire her roughly hewn envelopes - that are invariably sewn around the perimeter, adding an odd international traveling folksy aura to it. You can see her trademark 'stretchy cat' stamp adjacent to the real Belgian postage. I always smile when I see those cats.
A close up of the little Fluxist guerrilla soldier herself. .....she never looked back!
The interesting envelope contained a little 6" x 4" artist booklet of which, this is the cover. It is like the unique happy vibes of your own home. And down the hall..........
How are all those books staying on those shelves? Oh, the unique vibes of home!
Some of the other pages comprising the booklet. It really is a sort of personal stroll that I feel I'm being led through (by Frips' hand). Nice to convey that feeling.
Here, the artist becomes even more personal and intimate. Very cool!
It simply would not have been 'Fripsish' to not have added her sleepy felines somehow. More of the luxurious life of cats.
Happy Springtime to you too, my cheerful birdie friend. There are some things that I really truly love about mail art - Frips is one of them! See you in the mail! Frips Mail Art.
May - 2013: Nothing like Spring going full blast to bring that rejuvenating feeling of your own individualism and how we stand and function as one in a world crammed full of individuals. We all require uniqueness; which does not wall off from community - We also require community ; which sustains but does not suffocate the individual. That premise makes mail art the perfect venue for practicing your individuality and, at the same time, being part of a large, international postal art community. Every person is unique - let's show off our "One of a kind" personalities of art through the mail - Surely it is a grand thing for all to see (hopefully). Remember: Senders receive!

Welcome to Heebee Jeebeeland
When I was a kid, there was an old cartoon I saw many times on TV. While a child was sleeping, the unusual wallpaper all over his room came to life and began to dance back and forth, up and down in a rather fanciful symmetry accompanied by a sort of goofy graveyard mischief music. All manner of mayhem went on until the sun shone again at dawn and the dancing pranksters rushed back to their original spots and the wallpaper became still again. It is in the vicinity of that realm that Heebee Jeebeeland exists. Please send Mail Art that needs to live here and be shown on this blog. ********************************************
