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 🙂
I’ve just sent out my first lot of mail art this year.
This is a postcard I sent locally to my friends Emma and Martin as a little surprise.
These postcards were in response to the last Ihanna postcard swap I did for people who put their addresses on the postcards they sent to me, thanks Theresa, Libby and Gloria in USA and also to Melita in Germany.
This card is to Andrew in Cheltenham, England who I met on our road trip in November. He wanted to know what mail art was, so as it’s the first day of this years ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’, I’ve sent my first days mail to him.
A good start to February I 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 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!
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 🙂
