September 25, 2010 - Like a number of other IUOMA friends, I'm working through and taking time to appreciate just a phenomenal wave of mail-art arriving. I received my first envelope from Sherri Ayers. In addition, to her art she included a very nice hand-written message and an invitation to participate in a mail-art poetry show. Sherri sends paint swatches. You compose poems based on the colors of the swatches, attach, and return. Seems like a neat idea. Sherri also sent a collection of old stamps (shown above), which she suggested I might want to use in my own mail-art. They will definitely be used. Below is what I consider the centerpiece of this wonderful package she sent:
I'm very glad we're friends, Sherri. I look forward to trading more mail-art in the future.
