Here a couple of letters I sent out a little while ago written on some of my favourite stationery, I just love it!
The first to Iryna in Belarus
and the second to Renee in USA.
I also sent off my postcards to Kat at Liberate Your Art, The deadline is not until march, but I missed it last year!
More Letters for my Every day commitment. I’m finding it a challenge to think of someone every day but I’m still keeping up! I thought it might be more interesting to tell you who I sent to and why.
#6 Josephine in the Netherlands because she hasn’t been well & #7 Chloe a friend for just being lovely.
#8 Dennis & Pat (church friends) for just being lovely.
#9 Emily my cousins daughter at Uni, for encouragement & #10 My Auntie Glenda, just to say hello.
#11 Heather a friend locally who has been extremely poorly recently.
#12 Jeanne in the UK, the minister at our first church after we were married because of happy memories.
#13 Lisa who lives local, a friend who has ME, to make her smile, as I took this photo from the top of the church tower and the arrow points to where my house is!
And #14 Sarah, someone new in the US who is doing the same letter writing challenge as me.
I’m half way through the challenge now so keep watching 🙂
As it says in my header, February is ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’. To take part in this you commit to sending a letter, card or note to someone every day during the month. It’s not as expensive as it sounds, you can write local and hand deliver if you want. What a lovely challenge. I’m doing good so far!
1st & 2nd Feb.
and 5th 🙂
It’s nice to think of someone who won’t be expecting it! 🙂
Here’s another thing I got through the post for Christmas, from my friend Susanne in Germany. This beautifully decorated story box with Christmas goodies inside.
The story was written on the outside and as I opened the box it continued on the inside.
What a charming thing to receive by mail, hard to photograph, but I did my best 🙂 Thanks Susanne!
Here are some cards I received from my lovely Mailmaker friends from far and wide. Some handmade and some carefully chosen 🙂 Thanks Susanne, Iryna, Antoni, Josephene, Nelleke, Yuka and Deborah 🙂
In my mail box this week 🙂
A lovely holiday postcard from my mail friend Antoni, thanks Antoni for this lovely card, the Guggenheim is a fabulous building!
Postcrossing cards from Dasha in Belarus and Tugce in Turkey,
Moni in Germany and Igor in Russia.
I especially love the stamps from Russia!
I regularly go to our local collectors market which is held once a week here in Fakenham. Last week I found this vintage stamp.
It had loose letters spelling this.
I decided I wanted to make an anagram and use all the letters and spell something to do with my mail. I managed to use all but about four and came up with this! 🙂
