Hi, Mabb

The artist Jean-Francois Aillet invites you to collect your sample of sand from a moraine, from next to a waterfall or beside a river, along the shore of a lake or a stream, in a desert or on the border of an ocean. One should not, however, send him sand from a construction site. You are asked to document your collection of the material with a photo, taken as you are pouring the sand into a container. For an example, kindly visit his home page at . English :

See you to take part in this international project.

Received your wonderful CAT+!  I LOVE "St. Cattaldo" and the envelope is terrific as well.  Thanks so much.

Really glad it arrived. I've been meaning to send that out for a long time and I'm glad it's made it over safely. Will be collecting up more Romanian pieces in February I think, so you may see more Romanian artefacts soon

Good morning Mabb,    it took me a long time to find the friend request thing.  It's on the person's IUOMA page, on the upper left, under their picture & name.  If they're not "friended" yet it says "add as a a friend"."  You most likely already know that part. 

   When the next window opens to add them, in red letters it says "add a personal message."   The first time I saw this was yesteday when I did yours!

Hi neighbor, love your Seamus and hope you send more pictures.  I hope you all are untouched by the flooding rivers.    Elizabeth and L. in Troy

Youre sometime-but-uselss mentor asks: Why?

Why are you called 'Mabb'? First name? Last name? Nickname? Accronym?

Regards, JE Sweefoo

Well all of us here can go back to what we do best, which is nothing much these days -- well I'm waiting for some acrylic paint to dry. I DO understand English most of the time ...and French, and Dutch, and other languages too, and when I get stuck I have a Persian cat and a Siamese cat to help me with more exotic languages BUT I don't know nothing about computers and all the mysteries that they talk to each other. And I don't want to know nothing about them anyway.

Anyway this isn't really relevant as you (with the help of Angie & Snooky) have solved your problem. That's what mentors are for: getting other people to solve things.

Perhaps I should get a corgi too: any thoughts?

Blog on, baby!

Regards, JE Sweefoo

Bonjour Mabb!  June, July, doesn't really matter because all I am doing is sheltering from the heat and playing with the cats. What a busy life we French Mail Artists lead!

Now, I'm not sure that I can help you with your Blog problem for two reasons. The first is that I don't really understand what your problem is, and that could be because you haven't explained it very well (try again?), or, and more likely, because I am stupid and don't really understand this blog I have other things to do in life (like play with the cats).

Secondly, it could be a 'technical' problem linked to the way the IUOMA database (its called NING -- honest, it is) works, and I have no idea whatsoever how to NING or NONG or whatever. If it is a technical problem, you'll have to ask Ruud Janssen to sort out for you -- but in the meantime try and explain it to me again.

Sorry to be so useless (but that is one of my defining characteristics). Regards JE Sweefoo

Boy you were up early today! The clown lady had to go to you, I was glad I had not addressed to anyone when I posted it so she could be yours. I can't remember what I put on the inside but if they were stamps they were mail art stamps I made. I like making art stamp, I'll send you a few that I have made.

It's a pleasure Mary Alice. Hope you get it by Friday.

Yes the clown was me, I forgot to put my name on it! Go for it! That is what I love about this group, someones idea spurs your creativity. I have a long list of "I want to try that!" from this group.

I guess if someone were to ask me what mail-art is it would be receiving something so beautiful and quaint in the mail that you don't want to open it. I learned that today with your envelope. I have no idea exactly what this 'it' factor is but this envelope you sent me has it. I still haven't opened it. It's been in my possession for over an hour and I love the way it feels in my hands. I know I have to eventually open it to read what you wrote but not yet. Thank you very much. <3

Thank you, thank you!
