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? 🙂
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 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 🙂
Here are some New Year letters I’ve sent out, with my own homemade stamps.
All very pink and sent out with love 🙂
