Many of you I expect have seen that I make art stamps (faux postage stamps) I made some more the other day that I’m particularly pleased with! What do you think? 🙂
It’s a pleasure to be able to slow down and take a thought for family you don’t see often and also write some letters.
Birthday cards made today for a lovely Auntie and Uncle
and letters to InCoWriMo friends
I had two lovely things put in my mailbox recently.
These beautiful wings from a sadly diseased bird, which I’ve been given to use for an art project
and this beautiful handmade wedding invitation.
I haven’t been invited to a wedding for a for ages, so what to wear 🙂
I have managed to write and send 19 letters out of 28 so far for ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month‘ (and also a few postcards for ‘Postcrossing‘). Countries I’ve sent to include UK, USA, India, Canada, Iceland and Belarus, 🙂 So I’m happy with what I’ve achieved. I have received 5 letters so far and still have some letters to reply to.
I have really enjoyed taking part this year, it is a joy to send blessings through the post, mostly to people I don’t know!
Here are some more of the lovely postcards I’m very pleased to have received through postcrossing.
From Danielle in USA and Cate in Russia,
Francous in Germany and Asta in USA,
and Gustav in Czech. Republic, Daniela in Germany and Sylvia & Family in Germany.
I’m doing InCoWriMo again this year, and attempting to write a card or a letter every day of the month. I’ve started well. All in the UK so far but I have letters for further afield planned 🙂
First I wrote to Jan in Norfolk with her birthday card and Jeanne in Hertfordshire,
also to my friend Pat in Northants.
I received a my first letter from Emily in Sussex, such a lovely letter which included this beautiful handmade card and I wrote straight back.
The latest are to Jane in Norfolk and Natalie in Kent, both were on the InCoWriMo list.
It is difficult sometimes writing to strangers, but it becomes easier the more you do it 🙂
Here are some New Year letters I’ve sent out, with my own homemade stamps.
All very pink and sent out with love 🙂
