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...)

Julian lives in concrete.  I feel so blessed to have this piece.  Thank You.… Continue

Mail-Art from China Arrived

The first Mail-Art from China arrived without any problems. The sending itself was a small problem as I read. The postcard that was sent had to be enclosed in an envelope for the postal office to accept it. They are strict about the formal rules.… Continue

Check this Tag out!

Jen Staggs sent this tag, weaved then sewn around the outside edge.  The weaving looks like a lot of work, I would have no Idea how to do that, but it's amazing!

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. I am enjoying it as well as puzzling over it, and it seems to fit in with all these mail-art language experiments going on…
