International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

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 🙂

New Year Letters

Standard

Here are some New Year letters I’ve sent out, with my own homemade stamps.

All very pink and sent out with love 🙂

Sending Letters

Standard

I have been enjoying using some stationary I’ve bought.  I usually make my own but, taking part in the letter writing month in February encouraged me to buy some stationary and it’s made a nice change to use something different 🙂

All of these were bought from Paperchase.

From a Friend

Standard

I have so many mail exchanges to show you,I can’t believe how slow I’ve been!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!

She loves portraits and she did one of me and sent it through the mail 🙂

New post box

Standard

After getting a bit of a bash when the lawn was being mowed a few months ago, our mail box had never been the same. We finally decided we needed a new one, so I thought I’d show you all.
I am now the proud owner of a bright red mail box for all my yummy mail!Postbox 1 Postbox 2
I think the next step is to decorate it some how 🙂
