Trash Bubbles are gaining momentum!
Last spring, Awesome Pittsburgh honored me with their 69th grant! Check it out here: https://awesomepgh.com/2017/12/07/award-69-trash-bubbles/
The grant was specifically to curate an exhibit of my own Trash Bubbles alongside those of other eco-conservatives…Continue

My first thought, upon seeing this package leaning against my doorjamb was, "Geez! Probably the art supplies I've been waiting for!" I envisioned a battle to claim damages and get the supplies replaced.
Never before, had I seen…Continue
Haven't answered a mail art call in quite a while, despite all the mail art I've been creating.
The SEE mail art call appealed to me. As is usually the case with me, my piece is a literal translation of the theme.
Went with a variation on the children's book 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear What…Continue

Just wanted to give a shout out to Dean Marks, Mim Scalin and Angie Cope for the recent mail art found in my box. Not a lot of time these days to post blogs here, so I'm providing a link to my main blog:…Continue
Folks, I am happy to announce that Trash Bubbles are making a splash in the world!
When I first began creating these self-contained ecospheres of trash for my…Continue
Many of you are aware that Life, as it is wont to do, really knocked me for a loop in recent months!
In order to scale back commitments and maintain what little sanity I had left, I am sad to say that I let my communications here at IUOMA wane.
It seems as though LIFE as I know it is returning to normal (just before the Holidays threaten to consume!) With that in mind, I am taking this opportunity to return virtual correspondence and send many thanks out to all who took the…Continue
This afternoon, my postal carrier pulled into the driveway, honking wildly! I was certain she brought the package from Germany for which I'd been waiting. I took the stairs two at a time... Imagine my confusion when she waved an envelope at me! Ah... Not to worry! This piece came from our favorite…Continue
Found this in an auction lot. Thought it would make a great piece of mail art, but alas, I do not know anyone who would appreciate such a gem. I you would like it, be the first to let me know in a comment below complete with your address. See you in the…
Ten days have passed since BANANA DAY! And the mail continues to trickle in!
It was great fun making up pieces to send, but as usual, I am more amused by the mail I am receiving!…Continue
"Ooops! I did it again!"
Let life catch me up, did not thank my friends!
The world as I know it, has been oh so kind!
My friends have been patient, they really don't mind...…Continue

Suus In Mokum had the unfortunate duty of reminding me that I had let summer take over my life, neglecting to blog or even say, "Thank you!" for some of the wonderful mail that has been gracing my humble box these days. Embarassed, but glad to have been put back on track, I am here now to shout out to all of you amazingly wonderful folks!
Erni is fast becoming one of my favorite people here at IUOMA. Not only is he talented, intuitive and wise... He is most GENEROUS!
We've recently been learning more about one another. In one exchange, I told him simply that I loved a piece of his work, "Straight Red Tango." Imagine my surprise when a package arrived from Erni, containing said piece of art!…Continue
The first TrashPo Bubbles posted on Friday, prompting the question, "What is a TrashPo Bubble, anyway?"
A little back story is needed here: The first piece of…Continue
Inspired by DK's recent trashpo videos and the discussion which broke out on my previous blog post, Oh! For the Love of Trash! (which can be found here: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/oh-for-the-love-of-trash?xg_source=activity) Moo and I set out to see what we could discover of the remains of an old trash pit out…Continue
Sometimes, living on a 7 acre plot, where it was routine to dig holes and bury trash in bygone years, has it's advantages. DK wanders the streets of Elgin, eyes wide open for bits of this and that. Me, I tend to hunt in my own backyard: Piney Creek Acres.
Last week, I was walking the dog and the sun glinted off something shiny and black! I couldn't…Continue
There's this piece of vintage packaging that has been pulling at me for months, but I didn't know quite what I wanted to do with it. The colors are so vibrant and patriotic... This weekend, it hit me! It would make a great set of ListPo pieces! I found an old grocery list and got to work.…Continue

It all began with a walk in the woods last fall. That particular trip yielded quite the booty! My loot contained a dark orange POSTED sign I'd found on the forest floor. The sign was destined to be cut into postcard sized pieces of mail…Continue
