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

"Yes, Edward, they are scrambler envelopes. I never heard them called that before. I like it. I saved them all for a long time. Had a huge envelope full, used them briefly, then recycled them. They are such good material! I may start up again."

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.

I'm so excited! I contacted the Special Collections librarian at the university library where I used to teach. I invited her to come to our home and look at my Mail Art archive. I spent days and days sorting and organizing. I couldn't believe how tired I would get and how long…

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…

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…

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.

Hi Mim, thank you for your recent mail art. It has been posted. I think that the card expressed the quote very well--I'm a fan of watercolor crayon, too. 

I enjoyed perusing your blog--and yes, your face series is special!

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!
