"Thank you for the welcome. Fancy that, a perforating machine! I'd love some sheets. I have been experimenting with sewing paper as faux perforations. Not ideal I grant you. See where forty years sewing experience gets you! Cheers T.A.W."

This is a new venture for me, but part of my journey into the art of calligraphy which began about 18 months ago.  I would like to exchange mail with someone on a regular basis as a way of exploring art, ideas and beautiful lettering.

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly, it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly uncharted corner of the faraway universe called “Republik van Patland”. I would love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist.  If that is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 461
Curitiba-PR
80011-970
Brazil

I look forward to seeing a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a celestial promise.  I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.

Oh, hey, a living person at the Australian Embassy! How exciting! I just joined that group...doesn't seem very lively does it? LOL Are you my Aussie Embassy swap buddy by default? Did zombies eat the others?

Welcome to IUOMA!
