Some Mail Art - in and out

I received some Circle Mail Art from Sil in Belgium and sent a piece out to her same day. I've been lax about sending. I'm trying to be better about it and sending as I receive, BUT what to do about the pile up on my studio table - all wonderful gifts of incoming from Mail Artists around the world. Any ideas would be appreciated!

A Memorial Poem

NAMES It's that time of year - the holy time - when we formally - communally - remember - and say the names aloud - of those - no longer with us - I'm thinking - this year - of the names - how long it would take - to read them aloud - so many people gone - everywhere - in the newspaper - I say the names aloud - of people I don't know - and yet - feel the need to say their names - aloud - Ida - Earl - Alfreda - Marvin - Robert - Shirley - Cornelius - Verlina - and Casey - Aloud - Giving momentary substance. -in memory- 09.15.2021

Alterations to Vintage Cards

I cut out a bunch of shoes from a 1970's Sears catalog not knowing what I'd do with them.


Of course -  giant shoes in landscapes. What else?

I didn't keep a copy of what I wrote on the reverse for most of these before I sent them off. You can think up your own stories, if you'd like.

A giant shoe on the lawn of the United Daughters of the Confederacy building. Can you imagine how perturbed the ladies were to find this on their lawn?






 I have the story for this one - Who decided on a shoe ornament for the garden was never discovered. The gardeners disliked it immensely. It filled with water when it rained and was hard to drain.

I amuse myself, make myself laugh.

Write a few stories yourself and let me know if you do.

Random poetry in space!


I acquired a lot of "space" postcards and have been adding text to them. It's been quite satisfying.

Where'd the time go?!?

Some recent pieces of Mail Art with circles.









 Circles are so satisfying. How do you feel about circles?

Some Circles and Squares

 I made a few postcards for my groups on IUOMA  I originated two groups - one for Circles and one for Squares. The Circle one has a very active following but the squares, not so much.  I used the " let them fall" method of placement, then glued the bits wherever they fell. Then I gave them titles.

Direction, Congestion, & Gravity

                                                                 Direction & Gravity

They'll be sent off to in the mail this coming week. It feels good to spend a wintry morning making Mail Art. You should try it. Really.
