Outgoing Mail


I love sending out Postcrossing cards, trying to send something people will like. Most people list there favourite things on their profile, so I can hunt through my stash and find something they will like. Otherwise I make a new postcard.

The first card was to Nina in Belgium who likes old film stills and the second to Sallie in the USA who loves the ocean.


The first one here is to Michael in Germany who likes pictures where people live and the second is to Aileen in Ukraine who likes cows. It’s good to think you might be able to make someone happy with a postcard.

This next letter is to Wendy in Canada who was a paper swap partner and we decided to try and keep in touch and share about what art projects we are doing with each other.


Another paper swap


I got this amazing package arrive the other day, a return paper swap from Wendy in Canada.

Outgoing Mail


These are a couple of yummy’s I sent out recently.

The first to my lovely cousin Vicky in Gloucestershire, UK, who wanted to know about our new chickens. I’ve made chicken zine No. 3 and I sent her that with a letter and pretty envelope ๐Ÿ™‚ (I very rarely send plain envelopes now).

This package is a paper swap for Brandi in the USA. ย Brandi 2
