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.

First Outgoing Mail of 2021

I’m giving myself variety by making round cornered postcards this year and looking out for some new images to share.

Two postcrossing cards off to Monika in Germany who likes unusual buildings and Demaris in USA who likes landscapes. Also a letter to my pen pal Natalie who lives in England.

I’m really looking forward to sharing mail with people across the world in 2021

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 🙂
