Mail Art Call For A Good Cause

A few weeks ago, I got a message from mail artist and IUOMA member Merak Wysoczynski about a mail art project he was doing:

Dear Louise
can you maybe join our "smile" project for children hospitals?That means can you draw a smile for our project and ask your friends to join as well?
I hope you can.
World Smile Archive

Of course we can (and have), but then I thought I know there would probably be a few ZKK fans and mail artists out there who would join in on the fun.
You can send your "smiles" to:

Zombie Mini Kawaii! More From Finland!

Zombie Mini Kawaii sure loves fish and Finland certainly has its share of it! Commentary and photos from our Finnish Correspondent, Carina:

"There is not so much going on now but we took a bicycle trip in the evening, looked up some summer cottages. I told ZMK that this cottage has probably been a fisherman's home long time ago.."

Zombie Kitty Kawaii!: Modelling Those Fashionable Olympic Tees!

I never thought that Zombie Kitty Kawaii! (Mark 2) was such fashionista, but I guess having Parisian data in her genome would create a very fashionable zombie Kat:

"Martha is really living in the clouds, she never even heard of Patrick Stewart. It was a woman running with the torch. Anyhow, the important person there was ME, here modelling the Olympic Tee for my fans. That is London, Retailia, by the way."

"I got also a patriotic Canadian Tee of course. Well, soon I will be on my way to sunny Greece, oh joy! to spend some time with Katerina. Isn't she lucky?"

She is really lucky, Kitty Kawaii! (Mark 2). And, I have to say how much I love your Canadian Olympic Tee. It is indeed very fetching on you. Anyway, I know we all look forward to your re-visit to the birthplace of the Olympics and the amazing adventures you will have with Katerina.

ZKK 1 and PhatKat: Brand New Sighting!

Received this in my postbox yesterday afternoon. Hmmmm...

Zombie Mini Kawaii! Arrives In Finland...

...and I have to say that I am impressed with the speed that the postal service has delivered her all the way from the U.S.A to Finland. So, without further adieu, I introduce to you our latest commentator and host, from Finland, Carina Granlund:

"Zombie Mini Kawaii has arrived after a long journey from Alabama, the final stretch was not even paved, but here she is now in the Petsmo woods, Finland!"

"What does a little sufferer from jetlag.. when there is fresh nature such as birches, ants and lingonberries on your doorstep..  or?!"
 Well, Carina, I know that I am relieved that she has made it safely to you.  And, It looks as if she has less flies following her now. Wishing you both a lot of fun times and looking forward to hearing about your next adventures.

Zombie Kitty Kawaii! Joins The Olympic Torch Run!!

Finally, the day we've all been waiting for has arrived; Zombie Kitty Kawaii! is now one of the lucky few who have gotten the honor of being part of the Olympic Torch Run. She has now joined the ranks of Doctor Who (aka Matt Smith) and Sir Patrick Stewart in this illustrious event. Make it so!

"Today was the grand event in Beckenham, we went to the High Street to watch the Olympic torch pass by but it was a bit of a flop, Martha is too short and there were a lot of people and John taking photos from the opposite side of the pavement, well, he did what he could."

 "That's me in the circle. The flame was taking a long time to arrive so 
I took matters in my own paws."

 "Nobody looked at me, would you believe it? only a few kiddies noticed, I was wearing my London Olympics t-shirt. It matches my hat and I cut a beautiful figure, if I say it myself. I did very well; it is not easy to run on three legs, when you are used to four."

 "There she goes, but I was more interested in the policeman. Apparently, they are all called Bobby. Oh! I think there are a few bits falling off my face, time for a rest."
Love from London

An Update from Retailia...

 A few days ago, I had received this update from Retailia sent by Martha I. I was so broken up by the sentiment that I just couldn't manage to blog it until today. This Kat-astrophe has sent shock waves through the Queendom of Retailia:

"Thank you for the messages of sympathy on the demise of the SGT. This happened once before but it came back. This time it will not be possible. It totally burnt out and I scattered the ashes to the four corners; what was left on the pavement was licked up by my neighbour’s cat, Charlie. I haven’t seen Charlie since then.
Today Zombie Kitty Kawaii! laid a flower on the site of the catastrophe."

"There is nothing else to do now. We must move on.
I will retire to my woodland cabin in the depths of Cloudcuckooland, which as any schoolchild knows  is part of the United Queendom of Retailia, where after a suitable period of mourning, five minutes or so, I shall return to making Mail Art ."

"By the way, the Royal Wax Museum, in Snailmail-on-Sea, will soon have a realistic effigy of the Shopping Trolley Gallery on display. And if any of you wishes to have a Shopping Trolley Gallery of your own, under license of course, I will gladly send the plans and instructions for its construction.
Thank you again for your support in this dark hour."

And, with that, Martha, I will leave you to your period of mourning. I am certainly glad that Kitty Kawaii! was with you at a time you needed her most.

Zombie Mini Kawaii! More Adventures In Florida...

...and a Big Scaly Monster...
Well, nobody can say that Zombie Mini Kawaii!'s adventures are anything less then exciting! Our Alabamian Correspondent, Stephanie B., reports that Mini Kawaii! has been making friends wherever she goes:

"On our last leg of the journey in St. Augustine, Florida, ZMK and I came across this alligator.  She just had to pose with her new found friend.  Admittedly, I was nervous but ZMK assured me all is well.  Uh... how many lives does this kitty have left anyway?!"

"Hmm... maybe since she is already a Zombie, she has endless lives???  ZMK seems a bit touchy on this subject, so I didn't press her. "

Probably not a bad idea to leave sleeping zombie KATS lie on that matter, Stephanie. Even though she's the "little Zombie Kat" with no fear or no wits (your choice how you want to answer this one), she is a tad on the sensitive side about her life expectancy. Not that that has stopped her from doing things like...uh...making friends with an alligator.

Anyway, wishing you both a safe back to Alabama and looking forward to hearing about some more excellent  roadtripping adventures!

Zombie Kitty Kawaii! A Relaxing Day In Retailia!

Meanwhile...back in Retailia, Zombie Kitty Kawaii! and Martha I, spend time relaxing Retailian style."Tranquil" is not a word I would use to describe Zombie Kitty Kawaii!'s adventures, but there's always a first time:
"Here are some photos of ZKK at home. The weather has been awful so we have not gone out much but she seems to enjoy herself anyway, bless her!"

 "Love from Kitty and I."

Oooh, what a grand way to spend some down time. It's good to see that Julian Kat and ZKK are getting along so famously. Retailian lifestyle really seems to suit  Kitty Kawaii! Just don't let her pinch your crown when your not looking. Until then I wish you both many more tranquil summer days!

Zombie Mini Kawaii! Mail Art...

...this time from our former  Campinas - SP - Brazilian correspondent, Lilian Mariutti:

Don't you just love the Zombie Mini Kawaii! stamps?! I certainly do! I think that ZMK should have her own postal stamp. Maybe I should get the Republic of Togo to issue them...hmmmm....

Even Lilian's dog has her own stamp. How very cool.
Zombie Mini Kawaii! memories of her adventures in Brazil. How truly fantastic! Thank you Lilian for such an awesome and fun piece of mail art.

Life's A Beach With Zombie Mini Kawaii!

As we know, Zombie Mini Kawaii! is no stranger to beach life. Just check out her previous adventures in Brazil and Australia and you will see what I mean. This time, she has the opportunity to take a road trip through the southern U.S. to visit Florida. Photos and commentary by our Alabamian correspondent, Stephanie!

So here we are on the interstate leaving Huntsville, Alabama 
on our way to St. Augustine, Florida...

And here we are visiting Ana from IUOMA as we vacation in St. Augustine.  
It was great to meet up Ana!!
( I have to say, those "KATS" are so incredibly lucky to be able to meet up with so many cool mail artists. I think, as my next project, I may try an mail myself around the world. It could work. It could.

And here we are on the Beach. 

And here ZMK went splat on the surfboard. 
 I guess surfing isn't her thing.

The other issue with Mini Kawaii! surfing, I guess, would be that her "tummy worms" might attract sharks or some other  really nasty fish. Not a good thing for her or everyone else on the beach. I see that she has wised up and has worn her sunscreen though.

As always, we look forward to more of Zombie Mini Kawaii!'s adventures with you, Stephanie! We know they will be the stuff of legends!
