Is it just a thing our studio's blog has had problems with, or does the IUOMA badge tend to drag a bit about the place where it's tucked? I tried numerous times to moderate the thing's position, but…Continue

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
My Website (without http://):
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I love handmade cards, letters, snail mail in general, plus trading art via mail. The immediacy of art in hand makes our virtual world pale by comparison. I believe in handmade as a rule, even when I like using PSE for generating more fun online. (Okay, so some of what I do here came digitally. I like to add touches anyhow) And I've been meaning to check into this type of group for a long time. Happily, I saw the link over at Little Cricket Art Shack!
My Mail-Adress (snail and/or E-mail)
We are in the process of reassessing our positions as team here.
Please forgive the radio silence.
And to anyone who previously sent mail-art in my direction after first introducing yourselves, you have my thanks. I will do my utmost to send out your replies ASAP.

Take care, all.

PLEASE READ: To Ruud and all my friends at IUOMA

I hope this gets the attention it deserves.

I am not happy with how things are for me today here at IUOMA's ning.

For one thing, Val's mail ends up several times a day in MY inbox, not in his.

I can do nothing about this problem.

He says it all started when his email was hacked into. Since then, his private correspondence at IUOMA is being changed against his will. I am in the process of changing every password and preparing to leave the IUOMA if this problem is…


6/1/11 Mail Call Day: Michalis Kotsaris

Posted on June 1, 2011 at 11:23pm 3 Comments

The one and only IUOMA piece found this week in our mail box is from one of our Greek affiliates, Michalis Kotsaris.

It is uniquely flavored with his own brand of humor and of pathos.

The philatelic haul on the envelope is tremendously gratifying. 

Come to think of it, he's my first ever Greek mail-art compatriot!


And here's the best part:

THE ART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



New mail-Art: Mail call Day 5/18/11

Posted on May 19, 2011 at 2:49am 3 Comments

Hello everybody.

I am just wowed every time I find more IUOMA mail-art in our Studio's PO Box come Mail Call Day. This is truly a fascinating group of people.

This time out, there are several artists from our ranks whose works it is my pleasure to post here, and who certainly deserve a round of applause. One of these is Valentine Mark Herman, whose latest work came to the Studio mailbox during a flurry of activity, and thus had to wait. Today's bright grouping fits well with…


Just a quick Thank You for Val

VMH himself! ANd this is good stuff.

I have to confess, nobody I had ever heard about has ever before been the fortunate recipient of such a fun, frolicsome bit of flotsam.


Dig this: It's a MENU. So fun and interesting, and artful all the way around.


Thank You, Val, for this lovely, inspiring and surprising extra. I really needed this little…

Ah! a bear's hug! very good sorry to be so dim.

i can open iuoma now but cannnot upload to my websites, 'an engineer is looking into it' I am told.

Thanks for the tip so no point in changing server as they all are the same. May be is the Internet itself, overloaded perhaps.

I have seen 'it's a bear's jog' that is why i am asking as I never heard the expression before.
'We' refers to my husband and me, although Giles is included as always.
At the moment I am fed up with technology. I could not open IUOMA for several days and now I cannot update my website. The server has gone crazy. Lots of wasted time. And it rains and despite the bad weather I got hay fever. BOO HOOOO!

What is a bear's jog?

yes it would be nice to meet some day. We are also young at heart only but have managed to keep fit so far.

oops! the website for the Spa is:

but it is in german, better to google 'Blumau Hundertwasser' to get it in english. 

At 5:58am on June 5, 2011, Mail Art Martha said…

i want to do some work Hundertwasser inspired since last year when we also went to his place in Austria and still haven't found the time! may be ATC?

Go to 

Fancy a trip to Europe?  

At 9:08am on June 4, 2011, Mail Art Martha said…
yes I atc too

our trip to Austria was fantastic, great weather and lots of Friedenreich Hundertwasser art in the hotel. Do you know him? i love him, seems superficial but he was very concerned with the environment when nobody thought about those things yet.

Thanks for asking after Giles health, nothing is wrong with him just he is very fat and lazy and so I take Canigou the dog who keeps himself fit. Here he is:

Well he is not, the photo will not load. this is an improvement as for three days I could not even get to the IUOMA sites, will send it later

Morning Rose, thanks for the add--what is your address?

Hello :-) - I hope the discussions have made things clearer??? IF not - I am working on the pieces - copies worked into - each one by hand. I started off with some sort of uniformity but I am altering each work individually??? I prefer the hand of the artist - so thats what I give. Please send me your address??? Let me know if you have any other questions???? You know that you have to make 15 copies PLUS your original. the group size has become 16. There were 2 important artists who were omitted.  The foibles of too many discussion threads...
