Well, Mama's (me) got an expensive visit to the post office tomorrow, but obviously, it's totally worth it!
I'm excited to get this stuff out there, and I thought I'd share some photos with you guys...
First off, some packages for some of you IUOMA members! These guys all have a copy of my zine and a holiday card (a little late, I know...)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Jen Staggs (Dallas, Texas, USA)
December 21, 2010 - On the heels of her "Alexander" chapter (and that is an intended pun), I received a card from Jen Staggs with the poem above. I'm calling it a poem.
