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.…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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 #…Continue

The Mail Art that was submitted has been installed at Rostov's Coffee and Tea shop, on the street where there'll be lots of activity around the main race circuit.
The folks at the venue installed it in the window and inside the shop, and sent…Continue
I'm getting caught up on scanning the entries to the Bicycle Mail art call and exhibit. Still more to post and more arriving. YAY! I met with the folks at Rostov's Coffee and Tea where the work will be exhibited. We planned the display. It's all very exciting.
So this morning, I figured out how to get the important info - the what and how part - on the Bicycle blog. "duh" kids used to say! Finally. This came about because I was at my Spanish conversation group and someone wanted to…Continue
Look what I got from Ryosuke Cohen for the Bicycles exhibit. There must be a bicycle in there somewhere, or the concept of one, right? I'm delighted that he took the time to send me Brain Cell #915! Who wouldn't…Continue

Information on entering is at the scroll down end of the blog or here on IUOMA.…Continue
