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 🙂
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 🙂
This is some of the gorgeous mail I’ve received recently.
A lovely envelope from Iryna in Belarus,
Josephine in Netherlands,
Roxanna in USA,
and a lovely birthday gift from Suzanne in Germany.
All very lovely and I can’t wait to send them something in return 🙂
I have just very much enjoyed getting this mail ready to send. A birthday parcel for my cousin and a letter to a friend! 🙂
These are two pieces of mail art I have received recently from Richard in France.
I look forward to receiving mail from Richard, I’m currently using an image of the top envelope as my wallpaper 🙂
