Outgoing mail

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

Unusual and Gorgeous mail

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 🙂

Latest InCoWriMo Letters

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!

International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

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 🙂

February #2 – International correspondence Letter Writing Month

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 🙂
