Hello dear IUOMA colleagues,
I want to let you know that I appreciate all my incoming mail, add and pass, ATCs, and more. I've been slow to respond, absent from responding on-line, etc. because I've been obsessed with writing postcards to voters, to get out the vote, here in the USA. I'm obsessed by this. I'm getting aches in my thumb joints, and wrists, and maybe even writers elbow (instead of tennis elbow, a game…Continue
I think I've learned how I need to save photos in order to post them here. Fingers crossed I did indeed learn it.
I'm so happy I could post this postcard. I've been havimg problems posting from my chrome book, all google based, still learning how to make things happen. I'm resurrecting my series of Landscape beautification postcards. Alltering old landscape postcards with the addition of art work. I love doing this. Does this make you smile? It does me!…

My husband and I took the train up to Washington, DC, for a day trip last week, specifially to see the Mail Art exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery. It's part of the Smithsonian Institution. An amazing museum …Continue
I've been sending mail art postcards out into the world for a long time. And I think Mail and Mail Art is VERY important to improving the world.
And now I've another purpose for sending out postcards. I've become a member of a group sending out postcards to voters.…Continue
I'm so happy! I finally did it - I purchased our tickets for a visit to Paris. We haven't been back since 2012, so my Français is rusty, but I've pulled out my books to review. We'll be there from the 18 October to the 31 October. If anyone is going to be there or nearby, maybe we can do a Mail-Art meet up. Dean? We'll stay in the city, other than a day trip or two. Am I…Continue

I'm on a learning curve with my Chrome Book. I can't always FIND the photos that I take and download. Whew. I managed to find these recent arrivals. I, also, received good mail from Kat in Greece. hugs for all the…
I'm so excited! I contacted the Special Collections librarian at the university library where I used to teach. I invited her to come to our home and look at my Mail Art archive. I spent days and days sorting and organizing. I couldn't believe how tired I would get and how long it was taking. I loved seeing all the mail again. Old memories, remembering when I got pieces. My…Continue
Wishing all a good holiday season and wishing for all of us, around the world, a year ahead that is better than we can, at this moment, imagine. And, as always, the ever elusive PEACE. At the very least, we can attempt to find it in our own hearts.
This is a result of the successful Creative Sprint project, which you can be a part of, if you'd like. I'd recommend it highly. I've participated and it's great fun. It's free. You just have to sign-up for the daily prompts. It starts in October of this…Continue
Our kids asked a number of long time friends to send them photos of them and us, to put into an album they were making us for our BIG birthday celebration this past weekend.
And people did, and it was fun to see us and our long time friends together. Nice memories. Many of these people are in…Continue
I had a couple "conversations" with Keith Bates that got me thinking about the validity of email art. And I'm thinking that making temporary mail art, that only exists via a scanned image then sent through the interweb, makes people's electronic mail boxes just as happy as their physical mail boxes getting mail art. Oh that's convoluted, but you get what I'm getting at. SO I've…Continue
Join me in this really fun, free, creative project. I did it last year and it was excellent. You'll receive a prompt every day for 30 days. It's not as big a commitment as a 365 day project, that's for sure. I was able to use Mail Art during the Sprint. Sign up at #…Continue

I was looking at the stack of mail in my "to be responded to" box and became paralyzed for a moment - how had I gotten so behind in this? Oh, yes, of course. I've got to just tackle that box. I feel so badly that people haven't heard from me in awhile, so what is…Continue
