May Mail

I’ve been enjoying making patterns to make my own writing paper. So here are some assorted letters written on those, as well as using my lovely bought paper and sending some mail art and postcards. I am happy that they are all winging their way around the globe to bring a smile on peoples faces.

IHanna Spring 2022 Postcard Swap

It’s that time again and I’m loving it. I do enjoy the Ihanna swaps. This time I have based my art on a scripture from Micah, “Act Justly, love mercy, walk humbly”, anyone can use this as a guide to follow in life. It can act as an inspiration to anyone regardless of faith, so I thought I would share it through my art. A total of 10 postcards being sent out with lots of love 🙂

The Elevated Envelope

This spring, the Elevated Envelope Challenge started up again and I was eager to sign up and take part.

These are the beautiful envelopes I received, created on the topic of ‘Equinox’. I received art from USA, Israel and Ireland, I had a special treat of an extra one from a pen pal in USA.

This is the design I sent, an abstraction of the theme.

I can’t wait for the next one! 🙂

It’s International Correspondence Letter Writing Month again. Although I write letters all year round and may not take up the challenge of writing a letter every day. It’s an opportunity to meet new people through mail and possible top up on regular pen pals. So I’m including old and new in my letter writing this month.

Sherry in USA and Sarah, UK.

Natalie in the UK and Chantelle in Ireland.

Only four so far but they are filled will love and best wishes for the recipients!

Happy Mail

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.

All of these were sent with lot’s of love 🙂

Ihanna Postcard Swap

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.

New Postage Stamps

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.
