Wow, time flies! I have been working hard to catch up on my mail after not being well and have been completely forgetting to update my blog. I’ve been sending letters and postcrossing cards to USA, UK, Netherlands, Slovakia, Belgium, Germany and Japan to name but a few. It has been great getting back in touch with everyone. I’ve made my own writing paper and also invested in some too.
I do like occasionally to use traditional airmail envelopes.
Below is a mail art postcard to a new mail artist, envelopes designed from art doodling and also some pearly paper.
Here’s an envelope made with a downloaded image and some of my new stationary I bought.
As always, I enjoyed being part of the Ihanna postcard swap this spring. Sending out my 10 postcards to bring some joy to the 10 different people taking part. As always the cards I made were very colourful. Once posted, I awaited my 10 postcards in return.
I received 8 of my 10 which is splendid as they usually come from across the globe!
They are always so diverse and amazing to land in your mail box. Thank you Ihanna for regularly organising this fun event.
I was not very happy when the postage prices went up a considerable amount, but, as it works out the new postage for me to send a postcard abroad amounts to two UK first class stamps. That is a great thing in it’s self as it allows for more choice and the opportunity to buy great stamps for the recipients. These are the ones I’ve just bought.
I’ve received so many Mail Art postcards now that I have started turning them into books. This one contains 36 postcards that I can pick up and look at whenever I please. Better that being stashed away in a box 🙂
Letters and mail art and needed prayers have gone out to some lovely people in Belarus, France and here in England this time. My mail continues to encourage me, being able to connect with people when we are in complete lockdown. The mail that come in my letter box is definitely a blessing.
I was pleasantly surprised this year that we had twelve handmade Christmas cards. I so love handmade cards and always appreciate the time that goes into making them. Look at this wonderful selection that arrived in our post box for Christmas 2020 🙂
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 🙂
