I have been involved in mail art through varied swaps - first through Utne Cafe/Newcafe and the last one through RAW-art. Through the years, I have participated in many swaps. Not too much lately, but I would like to do more! I like getting fun mail and connecting with people.

Ellen, in reviewing my mail I found the IUOMA message saying that now you are on board. I welcome every newcomer, but can´t remember sending a message to your name. Please accept this late welcome. I wolud like to be the other end when you decide to start trading mail art. If that´s the case, your envelope should read as folows.

II look forward to see your piece on my mailbox. Yes!, I will do my homework after receiving yours. That’s a celestial promise. I´m Patricio, The Celestial Scribe.
Thanks Ellen - what goes around comes around! :D I will send you some mail art this week. BTW, I was looking at what Camel wrote to you about what mail art can be and just wanted to add that those postcards you make are perfect examples of mail art so you're off to a good start already. One thing that I love about mail art calls with themes, which is another way mail art happens, is that I am often challenged to do something I wouldn't have done otherwise. For example, I don't drink coffee but someone here at IUOMA hosted a sort of 'what goes with a cup of coffee' call and I had to really stretch to think what to do. In the end, I did something I really loved and am proud of because I had to really think about it. Anyway, anything that goes through the mail counts! ;)
P.S. Please consider doing some rabbit art to send to my year-long Golden Rabbit call - you can read more about it and see some of what people have been sending at: Year of the Golden Rabbit Mail Art Call Results . It's a way for me to both celebrate and distract myself from turning 60 in a few weeks. ;)
