An apology, of sorts

Hello dear IUOMA colleagues, 

I want to let you know that I appreciate all my incoming mail, add and pass, ATCs, and more. I've been slow to respond, absent from responding on-line, etc. because I've been obsessed with writing postcards to voters, to get out the vote, here in the USA. I'm obsessed by this. I'm getting aches in my thumb joints, and wrists, and maybe even writers elbow (instead of tennis elbow, a game…

My newest Landscape Beautification Project

I think I've learned how I need to save photos in order to post them here. Fingers crossed I did indeed learn it.

And now I've another purpose for sending out postcards. I've become a member of a group sending out postcards to voters.…

We're on the move!

I'm so happy! I finally did it - I purchased our tickets for a visit to Paris. We haven't been back since 2012, so my Français is rusty, but I've pulled out my books to review. We'll be there from the 18 October to the 31 October. If anyone is going to be there or nearby, maybe we can do a Mail-Art meet up. Dean? We'll stay in the city, other than a day trip or two. Am I…

Mail Art Archive

I'm so excited! I contacted the Special Collections librarian at the university library where I used to teach. I invited her to come to our home and look at my Mail Art archive. I spent days and days sorting and organizing. I couldn't believe how tired I would get and how long it was taking. I loved seeing all the mail again. Old memories, remembering when I got pieces. My…

Happy and merry to all

Wishing all a good holiday season and wishing for all of us, around the world, a year ahead that is better than we can, at this moment, imagine. And, as always, the ever elusive PEACE. At the very least, we can attempt to find it in our own hearts.

Excited about what my kids do! A shameless post!

My creative offspring have done a book together. It'll be out in the spring of 2017 (but can be pre-ordered on Amazon!)

This is a result of the successful Creative Sprint project, which you can be a part of, if you'd like. I'd recommend it highly. I've participated and it's great fun. It's free. You just have to sign-up for the daily prompts. It starts in October of this…

Returned Mail Art - comments appreciated.

So I want to run this by my mail art cohorts and get your input on it.

Our kids asked a number of long time friends to send them photos of them and us, to put into an album they were making us for our BIG birthday celebration this past weekend.

And people did, and it was fun to see us and our long time friends together. Nice memories. Many of these people are in…

Playing around with temporary-ness and email art.

I had a couple "conversations" with Keith Bates that got me thinking about the validity of email art. And I'm thinking that making temporary mail art, that only exists via a scanned image then sent through the interweb, makes people's electronic mail boxes just as happy as their physical mail boxes getting mail art. Oh that's convoluted, but you get what I'm getting at. SO I've…

Creative Sprint

Join me in this really fun, free, creative project. I did it last year and it was excellent. You'll receive a prompt every day for 30 days. It's not as big a commitment as a 365 day project, that's for sure. I was able to use Mail Art during the Sprint. Sign up at #…

Catching up, I think.

I was looking at the stack of mail in my "to be responded to" box and became paralyzed for a moment - how had I gotten so behind in this? Oh, yes, of course. I've got to just tackle that box. I feel so badly that people haven't heard from me in awhile, so what is…
