I received this collage postcard from Jay Block.

Rare sighting of Marcela after a long absence, good to see her art work!
And from Samuel sends an envelope full of goodies:…Continue
Stan sent me this collage which put me in mind of exotic passport stamps, sour La Rana notwithstanding. He also sent me some great postcards (He has excellent taste in ephemera). This one has a charming message.…Continue
Rachel is doing the mailart 365 challenge and these were blogged as number 233. I liked them then when I saw them online and I like them even more now they are on my desk. Great stuff. Thank you Rachel.
Yes, the elastic wraparound is pants for each day of the week. Please draw your own conclusions.

I received the above items from poet/artist Kait Moyers, who goes by "mothpuppies" on Tumblr. To my knowledge, Kait is not (yet) an IUOMA member.

This is perfectly executed - so neat and even, and the colours not in an obvious pattern but balanced. I could stare at this for quite some time. Very satisfying.

Then a really strange collage that is torn and deliberately blurred--I don't know much about how this is done, maybe a transfer? People in extremely weird costumes and the word "inclusive" below them. Plus, two altered playing cards and, if that weren't enough, a wonderful cut-up poem, on the back of which is his really cool round label "Cuan's…Continue

Look at this lovely envelope from Gail. The back is even prettier than the front. Plus, a collage with cut-up and an old-fashioned valentine! I haven't received a valentine like this in, well, ever. Thanks Gail!…Continue
