Laurence offered some tea, and a really nice package with tea & art arrived. At first I will show you the envelope cut open.
Unfortunately my French is very, very rusty, and I have not decyphered the text fully, but I do like the image of the painting very much. A kitchen window, an open book, some autumn birds - it sets the scene for a homely cup of…Continue

More of Art Tower's sweet characters - robots and ladies. And tangerines! My favourite is the girl with the big heart on the envelope! I love the fountain pen hand writing. Thank you Mr. Art Tower…Continue

I sent Torma Cauli an altered postcard from Vienna, and was surprised to find it blogged on his website already a few days later. Oh well, after all Budapest is only a few hours distance from Vienna. But then, really quickly, I also received a postal response: a fascinating haptic collage mounted on a card from the Goethe Institute. Wonderful! Thank you, Torma!…Continue

A double surprise in my mailbox - on two days in a row - came from Moan Lisa. I got what I understand to be a lovely personal message on this postcard. And I got a large recycled envelope with some cool stamps from Russia. I take the medals as an award for my outstanding work at the Moan Lisa Art Academy! Inside the envelope there was a family collaboration piece of mail art. It features a little rat or mouse painting and reminds me of a favourite - the classic picture book Frederick by Leo…Continue
Sometimes mail art provides real challenges, or puzzles to solve. It took me a while to put this one together, possibly because I got Card No. 2 before Card No. 1. Only today I realized, hang on, two cards from Texas, there may be a connection and now it makes all sense. …Continue

I like Susan, she always leaves it to me to come up with a title for her art work. It's like being a consultant, but without the high salary. Then again, Mail Art like this is well worth the effort.
My hunch is that Susan knows what she is doing, and has a trained background in drawing.
Thank you Susan, you're amazing, and love your…Continue

This is one that went missing for a while, but now it is back and has been added to my Katerina Nikoltsou National Library Collection.
Over time we have discovered that some barcodes disappear over time. Hence the question; "Are Barcodes are Human even if they disappear?" and which came first, products or barcodes?
Some food for thought this weekend.…Continue
From Stephanie, a thick beautifully composed card, playing with an artist's vision!

Such a fun piece from Carina! My daughter was back from Uni to have a Thanksgiving meal with us (she's half American) and as I just told Katerina in the arty slides domain, she was a big Disney fan in her youth. She is also a lover of everything French and of…Continue
I love getting a smorgasbord of mailart pieces and Nancy's 'hardly noticeable' mail art was a delight to slip from the side of the envelope. The envelope, so beautifully crafted and topically appropriate... I hated to cut into it, but then I noticed that it was already opened (I don't think anything was taken, I hope not) but the pre-slitted slit helped me feel OK…Continue
Jeanne....you rock...thank you so much for my very first artie slide...it is wonderful!Continue
Thanks Dustin! …Continue
Archiving mail art sent and received is quite time consuming. I got two bits of mailart in the post today and decided it was time to do some catching up with blogging all the wonderful art I've received from some very decent IUOMA members.
Here's s a postcard from Claudia McGill I love the colours:…Continue
