Awesome Pop-Up Trees from Denise Woodward

I don't know how she does this. It looks so clean and pretty. Pop-up books were my favorite things when I was a kid back in the Jurassic Period.…

Richard C's poems & my responses

When I started doing this mail-art thing a few months ago (!) I had the great good luck to become a correspondancer with Richard C. He has written a number of poems on plain white postcards and sent them to me. He said he wanted to exchange poems with me, so I, being completely ignorant of how illustrious Richard C is, decided I would turn his poems into collaborations. Since he keeps sending me poems, I have to believe he doesn't mind too much. Here's one I added to his "...a tearible…

But That's Not All: from Minneapolis Gnome

ALSO in the package with "Another Crappy Mini Zine" was this bizarre and wonderful boekie, hand-decorated, stamped, blued, painted, and even sewn, made from a little pocket doo-hickey originally intended by the well-meaning Minneapolis Metro Transit company to help riders use their buss passes. Little did they know....…

"Clock, Crow" from Heleen de Vaan

Heleen beautifully combined two mail art interests here. The beautiful hand painted card has hand lettered stamp perforations (the patience it takes to do that!) and a wonderful curious crow looking up at the clock, which has no hands. The flip side of the card has clocks (& chickens, one of whom may be a "Crow-ing" rooster?) and the envelope is covered with clocks. Love the thought that went into this piece.…

Constantly Amazed

Just have to say I am constantly amazed by the creativity and insane talent shown by so many IUOMA folks! Checking the recent blog posts with art from Meeah, Stripygoose, Marie, Carina. Wow. Just wow. And Fast Eyes and Grethe and Minneapolis Gnome. Amy Irwen. Now I'm in one of those Academy Award loops where if I forget to mention anyone they're going to be insulted. Well, don't be. I'm in awe of everyone of you! Richard C., that means you. You all are keeping the light burning in my little…
