Rachel is doing the mailart 365 challenge and these were blogged as number 233. I liked them then when I saw them online and I like them even more now they are on my desk. Great stuff. Thank you Rachel.

rec'd from Kait Moyers - January 2016

I received the above items from poet/artist Kait Moyers, who goes by "mothpuppies" on Tumblr. To my knowledge, Kait is not (yet) an IUOMA member. We met on Tumblr, where she expressed interest in some of my poetry, so we decided to do an exchange. As you can see, the work above would be welcomed by many other mail artists, and I am sure if she so chose, she could…

suus's stictchery

This is perfectly executed - so neat and even, and the colours not in an obvious pattern but balanced. I could stare at this for quite some time. Very satisfying. And Suus has re-gifted a shadowbox to me, which I like very, very much too. It's hanging from my desk-light, so thank you to someone who made this and thank you Suus!…

Part 2 of Cuan Miles' post -- I absolutely love the cut-up poem!

After computer locking up, here's the rest of the blog post from Cuan's package of mail art (I hope).…

Cuan Miles of South Africa sends me some "random art"

What a fascinating package of art from Cuan. First, the envelope is made from a print I think I've seen before -- it almost looks like a book cover. Then a really strange collage that is torn and deliberately blurred--I don't know much about how this is done, maybe a transfer? People in extremely weird costumes and the word "inclusive" below them. Plus, two altered playing cards and, if that weren't enough, a wonderful cut-up poem, on the back of which is his really cool round label "Cuan's…

Valentine's Package from Gail Anderson!

Look at this lovely envelope from Gail. The back is even prettier than the front. Plus, a collage with cut-up and an old-fashioned valentine! I haven't received a valentine like this in, well, ever. Thanks Gail!…
