Part of Gail's last mail art piece was a little sticker that read, "Do not rework'. So I sent her back that motto in big (hand-made wood block) letters, printed on a list of measurement conversions....also with holes punched in, and laced up irregularly with string...all components that are reminiscent of Gail's way of artmaking.

In response to Kim's newest mailing, which employed a perforated paper label sheet, I used a sheet of sticky address labels with similar dimensions. I folded it in half; remove the stickers; cut out the "Avery" logos; double-sewed around the edges of the cut-outs & the outer edges. Here is this piece of Mail Art, A) hung against my studio window, allowing the light to come through the double-sided cut-outs & B) rolled up, as I stuffed it into the envelope.

Ha....I automatically thought I should "open"this one...that it was an "envelope"...until I had second thoughts while opening the little clamp; and then realizing, while photographing it, just how much it looks like Gail's paintings...homogeneous, done.
