This is Lesley's second chapter for the Windmills of My Mind collaborative book. She has produced two fantastic chapters filled with the most beautiful etches. Faces, profiles, eyes wide open or tired eyelids, each of them has his own windmills, his own little world of rolling thoughts. Thank you Lesley, I hope I can send you a chapter very soon, as soon as those…Continue
September 27, 2011 - During the past months, IUOMA members have been receiving and viewing Svenja Wahl's distinctive and beautifully made mail-art. She has an…Continue
Last week I received this wonderful card from Judith. If I got it right it's part of a bigger picture and a second card I received a few weeks ago belongs there too. So I'll start to collect and see if I'll get the big picture together. I love the colour and the special texture of Judith's cards very much (and look forward to her trifold pages...)
On the other…Continue
Lesley's lovely drawings are always a welcome sight. The added bone(?) collage is like a sculpture and the asemic writing adds mystery. I particularly like the figure's hand (must be the Haptic in me). It comes across as strong yet nurturing. A nice overall sense of self-love here. Lesley created fun negative space for the envelope:…Continue
Mail from Guido Vermeulen (Belgium) arrived last week. A beautiful painted envelope (large) in which he included some details of his work and also a photo of his working place where you can see how he makes his envelopes. Seems he like to use a lot of ink. Also a…Continue
ZALOP – it’s a performance right? Whoever says NO in a deadpan voice, devoid of tone or apposite energy - quiet and sadly whispered or in a loud exclamation? However it is said, NO is a complex word for sure. ZALOP - the Fluxus word as original score was sent by Ruud on 15th December 2010. I determined ZALOP to mean "ABSOLUTELY NO WAY DEFINITELY NOT NADA NIX. It is essential this word is said in an emphatic tone. Accents do not matter…Continue

This mail art cracks me up. I seem to be getting a lot of cereal boxes lately so cerealism is apparently a movement that is here to stay. She writes "I don't own a microwave anymore, so I eat my lazy ppl food at night in the library staff room. Delishious!"
Thanks Sandra, okay now looking at it closer I can't tell if it is cereal or…Continue
The way the colors flow on the piece is very soothing to the eyes - the eyes travel across and are intrigued wherever they rest...the pansy flower, from a distance, blends to resembles a MONKEY FACE...THANK YOU LEE..
Mail art friends, sorry to be slow responding to the interesting and creative work I've been getting. I work in education as a consultant and the beginning of the school year is always really busy until about Halloween. I have done a series of cards I'll send out this week with origami cranes inclosed in them.

I feel so lucky that Lesley had another of these books and sent it to me. The use of pattern layered with text and asemic writing etc. is just breathtaking-thank you Lesley!
September 26, 2011 - JF Chapelle's "No! I prefer Fluxus" has become an instant mail-art classic during the past few months. The above is no doubt familiar to most…Continue

ABOVE: The inside of Marie Wintzer's "I COULD NOT SEE" shows life and language held together by a small, winding thread. The unraveling cheese cloth and the picture negative suggest a sense or quality of being unfinished, of not quite having things together, of waiting for further developments. The outside of the booklet is brown, leatherlike, and seemingly…Continue
