Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
It's been too many a year since I painted properly, my wife recently joined and got inspired so I thought I'd give it a go and see if I can recapture the bug!

My first day at IUOMA

Posted on June 6, 2013 at 2:28am 4 Comments

Well, it's been almost 24 hours since I joined this site and already it's got me picking up a brush!

My wife first came across this site and dug out the paints within a day turning our lounge into something utterly chaotic but ultimately more enjoyable and now the fever has spread. I haven't painted since I left school (some 14 odd years ago) and although I…

Chris, this is the last but probably 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 05 June 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.

Dear Chris,

Welcome to IUOMA!

It's a great bunch of folks and I hope that you enjoy exchanging Mail Art with us. I'm your Mentor, and if I can help to ease you into IUOMA in any way, then please don't hesitate to ask and I'll try to explain what's going on and how IUOMA works.

If you haven't already done so, I suggest you take a look at the 'New to IOUMA' page (4th from the left at the top of the IUOMA home page) where you'll find a 10-point Introductory Guide that should give you an insight as to what is going on.

Would you like to exchange some Mail Art with me? If so, send me something to 1 Rue de la Vieille Fontaine, F-11130 Sigean, France, and I PROMISE to send you something back.

Hoping you enjoy your IUOMA days.

Regards, Val Herman

PS. Thanks for reminding me that I was This Month's Mentor -- I'd completely forgotten. And, yes, let's be Friends. And yes, let's exchange some Mail Art. Why don't you start the ball rolling.
