Little Owl Mail Art

I’ve had this little Owl block for quite a while and was inspired this week to make some mail art with it. I made postcards, ATC’s and faux postage stamps. Sometimes I really struggle for inspiration for mail art, so I was glad to create this array of work.

These are all ready to go, one could be dropping through your mail box very soon πŸ™‚

Mail Going Out Today

Thursday is generally my mail day, so here is my outgoing mail.

A letter to Hanna in Sweden

and mail art for Richard in France.

Also I usually send two postcrossings per week and these are to Laura in Germany and Penny in the US, both cards I designed for our Active Fakenham Group.

Today’s Mail

Wow, I come back from my socially distanced shopping and this is what was in my mail box! I haven’t had so much mail in one day before, apart from maybe on my birthday. Three from IHanna DIY postcard swap 2020, one from a mail art group I belong to and one letter. Thanks everyone for my happy mail day πŸ™‚

Send Shutdown Mail

Thank you to everyone who has sent me mail at this strange time of shutdown and quarantine. I have be trying to send out more mail to make people smile and you’ve certainly done that for me.
here are some of the postcrossing cards I have received recently from UK Germany, Costa Rica, Indonesia and Finland. I am sure I have missed photographing some as I’ve been sending my own.
Do carry on sending if you can and bring a smile to some ones face πŸ™‚

Sending Out Mail Art

I’ve just sent out my first lot of mail art this year.

This is a postcard I sent locally to my friends Emma and Martin as a little surprise.

These postcards were in response to the last Ihanna postcard swap I did for people who put their addresses on the postcards they sent to me, thanks Theresa, Libby and Gloria in USA and also to Melita in Germany.

This card is to Andrew in Cheltenham, England who I met on our road trip in November. He wanted to know what mail art was, so as it’s the first day of this years ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’, I’ve sent my first days mail to him.

A good start to February I think! πŸ™‚

Happy Mail Day

The postman arrived early this morning and bought very happy mail. A lovely letter from Nancy in Iowa USA and some washi tape I ordered from Sweet Supplies Store on Etsy (from Japan) . I love buying from there because she’s very efficient and packages so beautifully!

I can’t wait to use my washi tape πŸ™‚
