Nancy Bell Scott commented on Ruud Janssen's group IUOMA membership Cards
"Is this membership card from Ruud in 2011, with the IUOMA stamp upside down, worth extra, like a U.S. postage stamp of the Jenny printed upside down a million years ago? Let me know where the auction is if you find out.   "

from Debra Mulnick -- beautiful, organic mail art

"The first word that occurs to me when mail art from Debra arrives is usually "geological," but then "organic" covers more of the experience and, in my imagination, the origin. How she works. I love this. "

Nancy, you just decided who will get the next piece of colored paper from Dave's Personal Collection of colored papers! I'm in California till June 3 or so but I look forward to getting the lettuce when I return. (sounds like we're talking in gangster code, just like the guvmintl guys).

Hey Nance! Would be thrilled if you pop in at the trashpo facebook group. Any IUOMA as well of course!  Facebook sucks, but I like to think Trashpo is still about the fun and has super nice trashfolks.  I have something to mail you...actually have had for at least a year. I'm very slow about sending these days, but the thought is there and I WILL send soon!!! xoxooxoxoxox

Hi Nancy,  Thanks so much for your fat envelope! I am quite thrilled by your amazing 3-scrappers ! And also by the ink minimal drawing ( it is on the beginning of a R. Kipling story that I really love, so that is  a special coincidence and wonderful). I beg your pardon that Ido not answer you immediately, bit  will send something to you when I return from a trip with my class to Greece, at the moment I cannot concentrate like I should. many many thanks again and habe a good time! 

best wishes for spring

Carina's boekie enchants me. All about color + shape, it is simplicity backed by a sophisticated artistic mind. I tried to stop scanning, but here's what happened:…
