Mail Going Out Today

Thursday is generally my mail day, so here is my outgoing mail.

A letter to Hanna in Sweden

and mail art for Richard in France.

Also I usually send two postcrossings per week and these are to Laura in Germany and Penny in the US, both cards I designed for our Active Fakenham Group.

Today’s Mail

Wow, I come back from my socially distanced shopping and this is what was in my mail box! I haven’t had so much mail in one day before, apart from maybe on my birthday. Three from IHanna DIY postcard swap 2020, one from a mail art group I belong to and one letter. Thanks everyone for my happy mail day πŸ™‚

Happy Mail Day

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 πŸ™‚

New Year Mail

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? πŸ™‚

Lovely Letters

If you send all sorts of mail, you get all sorts of mail in return πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚
