Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I'm still making my first mail art and haven't received any yet but it seems exciting to me to receive a beautiful or thought provoking handmade gift in the post made by someone in the world, from somewhere in the world, at any time.

 Hi there

I have sent you some mail art. Wouldn't it be ironic if your first piece come from me, just down the road! I hope we can become mail art friends.

Brent, this is the last but certainly not the least welcome message to IUOMA you receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA on June 13 I was unable to welcome you on board.  At the time I was in a celestial journey far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to planet Earth, I´d love to be the other end when you decide it’s the right time to start trading snail mail art. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe

Terrene Embassy

The Celestial Republik van Patland

Caixa Postal 24827




II look forward to see a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I will do my homework after receiving yours. This is a celestial promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland official envelope provider.

Hand made stamps

Posted on June 15, 2013 at 11:21am 7 Comments

Hello all.
Does anyone out there have any links they can forward of "how to make hand made stamps"?
The internet is full of offers selling stamping kits but I'd really like to make my own using various materials.
