Oooh, I didn’t realise how long it has been since I shared some mail with you. I was doing some art ready for an art exhibition which was taking up a lot of time. O have still been sending and receiving mail though so have lots to show you! 🙂
These postcards have gone to Min Cheng in Taiwan and Ingred in Netherlands,
W Chang Australia and Heleena Finland
and Zong He in China and Marina in France.
What a super thing it is to be able to touch peoples lives across the world without using social media. Handwriting a note is always special! 🙂
More Letters for my Every day commitment. I’m finding it a challenge to think of someone every day but I’m still keeping up! I thought it might be more interesting to tell you who I sent to and why.
#6 Josephine in the Netherlands because she hasn’t been well & #7 Chloe a friend for just being lovely.
#8 Dennis & Pat (church friends) for just being lovely.
#9 Emily my cousins daughter at Uni, for encouragement & #10 My Auntie Glenda, just to say hello.
#11 Heather a friend locally who has been extremely poorly recently.
#12 Jeanne in the UK, the minister at our first church after we were married because of happy memories.
#13 Lisa who lives local, a friend who has ME, to make her smile, as I took this photo from the top of the church tower and the arrow points to where my house is!
And #14 Sarah, someone new in the US who is doing the same letter writing challenge as me.
I’m half way through the challenge now so keep watching 🙂
As it says in my header, February is ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’. To take part in this you commit to sending a letter, card or note to someone every day during the month. It’s not as expensive as it sounds, you can write local and hand deliver if you want. What a lovely challenge. I’m doing good so far!
1st & 2nd Feb.
and 5th 🙂
It’s nice to think of someone who won’t be expecting it! 🙂
These are some textile cards I sent out recently, I made them using stitching and stamping on painted fabric.
I sent out two to Postcrossers, Jamie in USA and Richarda in Germany, both said they enjoyed recieving handmade cards.
I sent another to a penfriend in Netherlands
and included one in an art swap to my friend Nancy in America.
They all seem to have gone down quite well, so I think I’m going to make some more! 🙂
Here is lots of mail art going out to some lovely people.
Hare mail going to Iryna in Belarus, with ATC and art stamps.,
Yellow postcards using print, collage and Perle pens to Anastasiya in Russia and Susanne in Germany,
To Josephine in the Netherlands a postcard made from abstract painting and collage
also for Renee in USA
and to Nancy in the USA a hand made book with secret pockets, a postcard and some stickers.
I’m so glad to have sent all these! 🙂
I have just very much enjoyed getting this mail ready to send. A birthday parcel for my cousin and a letter to a friend! 🙂
