Even though it makes sense that we can look on each others profiles, you may want to add your address here and any blogs or other accounts you want highlighted. This way it's in a closed environment and we all get to share.

What's your default?

Because my friend Matt asked me this the other night, I had to think about it. His is painting a blue sky and some clouds, then he waits to see if anything more comes. His skull for Skull Appreciation Day was just the blue sky & clouds cause…Continue

Who will you send  your first piece of mail to? I've been thinking about this a lot. Will it be someone in this group? Will it be one of the many mail artists I've exchanged MA with over the years? Will it be one of my letter writing friends, or my…Continue

Significant dates for the diary (some might say...)

McFloozy mentioned Quack Day in February and I had a message from Valentine Mark Hermann telling me of an anniversary in February. I figured that it would be best to put all the dates in one discussion, so anyone could contribute and we could all…Continue

Genius that I am, I figured out how to send you my address. Also, I LOVE the idea of mailing 365 postcards on December 1, 2011; but I won't manage to wait that long. But if anybody does, we're going to need some photos!

Yes,Andy, I'm still ripping my book to shreds and playing with fabric. I've been a little off my feed for a few months but am returning to life again now. You know that blog was one piece of mail art a day originally, but then one thing and another came up. So I'm glad to begin again. I've chopped up all my cereal boxes for that very reason! And I'll send you my address as soon as I figure out how. Boo

I was inspired by David Berube's Face a Day project to do this for the last two years. And I must admit, it is really nice having a 'mail art bank' of work to keep ahead of correspondence and shows and projects. I have learned to keep some material half finished so I can adapt it to themed shows.

Woah. What an idea. One day in late 2011, 365 people are made very happy! I wouldn't be able to resist editing them though. At lesat you'd be able to make sure you didn't duplicate though.

There were over 1000 people on IUOMA last time I looked though, so easily enough for 3 years worth adnd you'd never run out of addresses

I plan to send mine off into the world.

I envisaged that you would make the mailart and send it as it was made as usual. I guess people could keep them and send them all as one big bunch at the end if they wanted, but the cost of postage will have gone up, and who can resist sending that many cards for that long!

Up to you how you do it I think

This just in from Valentine Mark Herman

There's at least one other question: what do you do with 365 different pieces when you have got them at the end of the year?
I'm lucky in that I'm going to exhibit my Envelopes.
But I need lots of space to do this properly. Arranged end-to-end (and with just a little space between them) the Envelopes will form a continuos line of 66 meters. They will be arranged on grill-type racks in the local mediatheque -- hopefully one rack/month.
I've just bought 400 little wooden clothes pegs so that i can hang the Envelopes up.
I am temporarily storing them in a box 50x25x25 cms (it will hold all 365 of them), but they are all squashed up face to face, and all you cans ee is a box load of coloured envelopes, but no details of any of them.
So, display is or can be as much of a problem as creation.
Regards, Val

Hi Jennifer - Never got this Queensland Giant Pineapple - I'm gutted! When did you send it?

You wouldn't need to start a blog, you'd be added to the bloggers list at, it's completely pain-free!

Hi Andy. I had a look at the site and it says join the blog roll. I suppose I need to start a blog if I join right? So far, I've resisited keeping a blog but I'd really like to take this challenge. PS, did my giant Queensland pineapple postcard ever make it to you?

Excellent Boo really glad to have you on board. It's been ages since I sent you some post! Are you still making it's only a book?
