"Happy new little one, though I'm not sure when it arrived. Maybe not so new. In any case, take your time getting mail out, to state the obvious, as little ones take up a lot of one's time. But someday, you'll have wee hands helping…"

Call them circles, call them dots, use a hole punch, use a template, draw them, scribble them, paint them, collage them. This is all about circles and how we make use of them.See More

The Mail Art Experiment

I just unearthed a stack of fantastic pages of handwritten experiments.  Inspired by my love of ledger art and the many talented artist who participated in the Philpott Lake Project (philpottlakeproject.tumblr.com), I am sending out a new mail art call!So, here is the deal; I will send you a sheet of “the experiment” to alter and send back to me.  I will then scan the pieces and post them to…See More

If you are in the Philadelphia, PA area on Monday, 4 June, 2012 - stop by between 10 and 4 to celebrate Skull Appreciation Day. I'll be there until about 3 P.M. It'd be fun to have a mini-meet-up of sorts. The Mail Art received will be on display.

Wishing all a good holiday season and wishing for all of us, around the world, a year ahead that is better than we can, at this moment, imagine. And, as always, the ever elusive PEACE. At the very least, we can attempt to find it in our own…


Excited about what my kids do! A shameless post!

My creative offspring have done a book together. It'll be out in the spring of 2017 (but can be pre-ordered on Amazon!)

This is a result of the successful Creative Sprint project, which you can be a part of, if you'd like. I'd recommend it highly. I've participated and it's great fun. It's free. You…


Returned Mail Art - comments appreciated.

So I want to run this by my mail art cohorts and get your input on it.

Our kids asked a number of long time friends to send them photos of them and us, to put into an album they were making us for our BIG birthday celebration this past weekend.

And people did, and it was fun to see us and our long time…


Playing around with temporary-ness and email art.

Posted on June 6, 2016 at 7:00pm 10 Comments

I had a couple "conversations" with Keith Bates that got me thinking about the validity of email art. And I'm thinking that making temporary mail art, that only exists via a scanned image then sent through the interweb, makes people's electronic mail boxes just as happy as their physical mail boxes getting…

My daughter's friend has a three year old who is in hospital undergoing invasive procedures. Cards would cheer her and her parents.
She is a super tough 3 year old who loves Peppa Pig and watching whale, dolphin and octopus videos on YouTube!

Hey Mim,

I love the postcard! Thanks so much! The Midwest is a cold, gloomy place right now. But, I'll be traveling to New Orleans in a few weeks, where live is warm and sunny, and the Mardi Gras season is in full swing!

Mim, thank you for the mail art.  I love these collage pieces you've been doing with the eyes, lips, and hands.  I'm trying my hand at one (no pun intended) and sending it your way.
