The artist Jean-Francois Aillet invites you to collect your sample of sand from a moraine, from next to a waterfall or beside a river, along the shore of a lake or a stream, in a desert or on the border of an ocean. One should not, however, send him sand from a construction site. You are asked to document your collection of the material with a photo, taken as you are pouring the sand into a container. For an example, kindly visit his home page at www.aillet.com . English : http://www.aillet.com/traductions/anglais.htm
See you to take part in this international project.

Spasiba, Thank you so much for the Mail Art. I like the textured background and the simplicity. I scratched on the little sweet roll on the address side to see if it was one of those "scratch and sniff" stickers. Silly me! But now I want a sweet roll!
Liza, this is the last but certainly not the least welcome message to IUOMA you receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA on April 25th I was unable to say welcome to you. At the time I was in a celestial trip far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to planet Earth I´d love to be the other end when you decide it’s the right time to start trading snail mail art. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:
The Celestial Scribe
The Celestial Republik van Patland

II look forward to see a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I will do my homework after receiving yours. This is a celestial promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Envelope Provider.
Wow, Liza, I received your wonderful letter with these beautiful tiny things! Thank you so much... How did you make these little stickers?? I've already used them on a few letters, very cool! I've sent something your way today! XX Svenja
