The Soccer Field AAP's

For some unknown reason I got a note-pad full of soccer field sheets. First I wanted to draw my favourite soccer team in it, but that appeared  too much work regarding the little time I have.

Fortunately some colleague mail artists are willing to help to complete the sheets.

"Did you get it?" I think, maybe

Sorry to take up blog space with this. I am always getting messages: "Did you get it?" (Did you receive the mail art?) That is an important question and one good reason why IUOMA-Ning is such a great resource. So here is a list from recent weeks:

Thanks for recent m-a received from (but not limited to): Robert Ridley-Shackleton, Monsenhor enVide neFelibata,…
