Hi Michael, I can't seem to figure out how to invite people after the fact, but I would like to check out my mail art call. Please don't feel obligated to participate, I think it may interest you though :) I'm not soliciting anyone, just a friendly invite to my first attempt at a mail art call :)

I will make an effort to check in often here too. I have really scaled back, in general, with social media, but trying to make more art. I have started the year by making some collages in a small Moleskin. I also hope to do more with photography and video, but we shall see. I'm going to take my time this evening to look through all of your photos here.

I'm very happy to connect with you here!  I miss seeing your work too and commenting on your photos, so maybe this place will serve as a good replacement.  I'll be sending you something in the mail soon!  A big hug to you, Hazel and Archie.

Hi Micheal, I arrived home the other day to the mail art you sent me. Love the collages and the postcards. They are going to become a great part of my already vast postcard collection :) All the best, Molly

You know just after I sent you that message I was photocopying in uni and chose a page out of a mail art book and realised after I photocopied it that it was your work - again! So I must just really like the look of it! I'm sorry don't feel you have to send me anything! If you would like one of my collaged postcards inbox me your address, if not no worries and it was lovely to speak to you :)

Michael, I am a fine art uni student and was just going through my research to bind it and I see your work which I photocopied from a book earlier in the year.. I then see a IUOMA member sticker.. I'm recently a member here so didn't think anything of it before! I love your work so much, I am currently binding it into my research :) Anyway I would love to receive some mail art from you but no worries if not as I will send something to you anyway if you give me your address :) Thanks for inadvertently helping me with my degree! Molly
