Mim Golub Scalin commented on Ruud Janssen's group Ask Anything
"A nom-de-mail has been a thing for some people. I don't mind that, but the not posting ones address doesn't make sense. I never email anyone for a postal address, either. Make art, mail art."

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…


Happy and merry to all

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…

Hi Mim! I just got the great CD art postcard that you sent me! Thank you for the art! The post office seemed to have been flummoxed by the shape and put it into a regular old envelope.

And how old are we that we remember placing nails into WOODEN spools that mama

had finished the thread? And then we sat for many quiet hours "knitting" snakes and 

other fun things :-)

Ah, yes, Mim...I remember it well :-)

Have fun with grandgal!

( my wooden spool takes only thin string, hole is small...

Heleen sent a nice LARGE plastic thingie)

I had a little scrambler piece fall off of an envelope as I was cutting it open, and I thought, "Yes, now I have to use this!"

Also, I got your postcard today. Thank you! I didn't realize postcards could be so thick. I keep asking questions at the post office, and they're always so matter-of-fact, as though there are no restrictions. But every now and then they'll bust out a ruler or something. I'm learning as I go :D
