Out Going Blessings

Letters and mail art and needed prayers have gone out to some lovely people in Belarus, France and here in England this time. My mail continues to encourage me, being able to connect with people when we are in complete lockdown. The mail that come in my letter box is definitely a blessing.

Little Owl Mail Art

I’ve had this little Owl block for quite a while and was inspired this week to make some mail art with it. I made postcards, ATC’s and faux postage stamps. Sometimes I really struggle for inspiration for mail art, so I was glad to create this array of work.

These are all ready to go, one could be dropping through your mail box very soon πŸ™‚

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™‚

Sending Out Mail Art

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! πŸ™‚

Christmas Mail

Even though I have the annual Christmas cold, I’ve been enjoying sending out my Christmas mail. I’ve had one of my paintings made into our Christmas card this year, sent with my art stamps attached. I’ve included some other bits and pieces to my regular mail pals πŸ™‚
