I’ve tried wet food and dry, but the kitten just sits by the bowl and grins!  Suggestions?

He came through the mail so nicely and hasn’t dematerialized at all. What kind of glue do you use? Knowing would be good for my mailart as well as me—I might be less inclined to fall apart myself on heavy stress days!

Woo-hoo, Mike thank you for the "Angels" poetry book! I love the idea of passing along things like that and I will make good use of it! You may see some of the poems flying back to you! And thanks for the Serendipitous Hood River card! It's really not that far from Eugene, probably 2 or 3 hours drive. But with my most hated and feared insect? the earwig? Gahhhh! Really, thank you for you mail art friendship!

Uh-oh, I forgot to take a pic of the posrcard I sent yesterday. Its #339 of my MAILART 365 project. I'm hoping you can either email a pic or post one on IUOMA. I have all the other photos! Thanks.

Si ti invio una mia mail art ... ma per favore scrivimi qui non sulla lettera ! Non so l'inglese e devo usare il traduttore se mi scrivi qui è  più facile . Ti abbraccio.  B

Hey, Mike, I love your latest endeavor, your "Art Not Art" Amalgam Mixture! There are a lot of people here in IUOMA who make Vispo (Visual Poetry) or other forms of mail art that involve both words and visual art. Yes, I'm a poet but I have't been writing much lately--too involved in Mail Art! Michael is indeed Iowa born architect (ret.) Good to hear from you again!

Mike thank you for the cartoon/mandala/demon! Highly energetic--I'm trying to figure out if it's a stamp or a free-hand drawing! Either way I love it! And thanks for all the ephemera, too. I'm glad to see you're a Minions fan!

I love the extension of my original idea, Mike. Thank  you so much :)

Hi Mike, thanks for the great dual card (drawing on one side, "Toni inspired soul collage" on the other! AND the fabulous envelope full of really nice ephemera. You can be sure I'll use it -- some of it might even find its way back to you!

Did you say IUOMA friends?  That´s real  quote celestial unquote.

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly, it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. I´d love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 461

I look forward to seeing a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a Celestial Promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.

Not everyone signs their work. Some of the signatures are pretty cryptic. All part of the mystery of mail art!
