J.A.D.'s 'Istanbul'--mysterious, lovely, seems to belong with Jan's soft beautiful circles card. The small dots are raised, and I love the almost readable text background. Great colors in both pieces. Thanks!

WOW! Great envelope and stickers from, who else, the Sticker Dude! Thanks a million, Joel!!!! Being of a darkish frame of mind and heart, I especially love the Banksy piece. So true! And the "Bard to Death" atop this Mary Oliver poem!…Continue

This is really nice work -- old cardboard, covered with lovely mauvish images -- look at the wing-like structure top right -- and the same bottom left -- just beautiful. The reverse is equally cool! Thanks Debra!…Continue

OMGosh Aine Holder's Mail Art just makes me happy, like her little "incher" above says! Isn't that a beautiful Salmon ATC -- very subtle colors, lovely textures. The purple ATC is the finish of a Buddy Jam started by Gaby Muller, not on the IUOMA site but an avid jammer. Thanks Aine -- you totally…Continue

It's a good Mail Art Day when a new poem from Richard hits your mailbox--enigmatic as always, here are "notations from September 17, 2016."

I can't figure out who you are, Linda! please respond if you see this and let me know--I feel really stupid for not knowing! Anyway, I LOVE THIS FLAG!!!! I love how tattered it is, and the sparkles, and of course the message! Thank you so much, whoever you are!…Continue
Believe it or not, this is the back of the envelope Live Ed sent me! You can run your hand over it and feel every one of these terrific heavy black lines. I hope Dylan has seen this -- he would LOVE it!Continue

How fabulous are these!!!!???? They are highly textured (paint, cloth, thread, postage stamps, text) highly layered, intricately thought out and crafted but still with an explosion of freedom. Amy, you were one of my very first inspirations in the Mail Art World and I'm so grateful for your…Continue

Here's a really nice sort-of czarist looking jewel collage from Irina. I like the irregularity and assymetry of it very much. And of course I can't begin to read the text but I like looking at it! Thanks, Irina.
This is the "front" side of David's PC -- for some reason the other side wouldn't upload to this site. I really love the ghostly flag/face images on the left side, superimposed over the "dark satanic mills" industrial picture on the right. Really nice work.

MAM says she'll be "back on the saddle after any holidays next week." I'm so glad! Meanwhile, she sends this marvelous bit of the Bayeaux Tapestry showing "King Harold pushing his Shopping Trolley Gallery, possibly carrying the royal sandwiches" -- vintage Mail Art Martha indeed. The blue piece is a "sun print" and then there are lovely artistamps from Cascadia Artpost!…Continue

I've said it before, I'm sure--Cuan Miles is a freakin' genius. Spend some time looking at these, the faces, especially. I know I'm pretty effusive in praise sometimes, but my lord, these just blow me away. The top right one is called "Across a Crowded Room."…Continue
