Loving sending out my mail for InCoWriMo
So far this week I’ve sent to Lisa in Norfolk UK,
my Dad in Northamptonshire, UK,
Tanya in Leicester, UK,
and to my sister in Northamptonshire, UK.
It’s lovely choosing different things for different people 🙂
The postman arrived early this morning and bought very happy mail. A lovely letter from Nancy in Iowa USA and some washi tape I ordered from Sweet Supplies Store on Etsy (from Japan) . I love buying from there because she’s very efficient and packages so beautifully!
I can’t wait to use my washi tape 🙂
I have received a little bit extra from my postcrossings this week. Nadia from Russia sent me these lovely stamps along with her card and also obviously I got the stamps on the envelope. 🙂
Then I got this lovely first day cover from Sutan in Indonesia along with her card and an information leaflet telling me about the stamp as well.
Very happy 🙂
Happy Mailing New Year to all of you who love making and receiving mail. I’m Excited to be starting a new year of making mail and to come up with some new Ideas and new ways I can cheer people up with mail. I’m also looking forward to making new faux postage stamps as well.
I have a new friend who lives in Norway who is not very well, so sending a nice letter is the least I can do.
Is there anyone you could cheer up with a letter or postcard? 🙂
Even though I have the annual Christmas cold, I’ve been enjoying sending out my Christmas mail. I’ve had one of my paintings made into our Christmas card this year, sent with my art stamps attached. I’ve included some other bits and pieces to my regular mail pals 🙂
I loved getting this birthday Mail Art ready to send off to my friend in Hertford UK. I made it with acrylic paint and collage and a Gelli plate printed recycled envelope.
I like to help people feel special! 🙂
If you send all sorts of mail, you get all sorts of mail in return 🙂
Here are some of my recently received letters from the USA and Italy, lovely words from Elisa, Debbie and Deborah. If you begin to write to some one new, the chances are that you begin a friendship that lasts many years, getting to know them by who they are not what they look like, treasuring the things they tell you about themselves. Why don’t you try it? It doesn’t have to be a long letter, it’s the thought that counts!
I’m happy to have sent out these replies to a couple of letters I got recently, off to the US and to Italy. What a lovely way to make friends. You connect with your heart, not being limited with visual obstacles of what each other look like, but an opportunity of real friendship, which is so nice. 🙂
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 🙂
