It was time for the Autumn ‘IHanna DIY postcard swap’ this month. All participants send out 10 handmade postcards; these are the ones that I sent out
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 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 did some marbling with a friend and was inspired to make these mail art postcards. The marbling reminded me of a wall and so I made some graffitti-ish postcards with stenciling. I sent these to Nancy and Renee’ both live in USA.
I really liked them and so was inspired to make some art stamps to match! This mail art was sent to Iryna in Belarus. 🙂
Well, I’ve received some splendid mail art recently, some totally unexpected!
This gorgeous envelope is from Iryna in Belarus, I was pleased it contained two ATC cards 🙂
This lovely little book is from Jade who lives in the north of England.
This is from Leanne, another from the north of England!
I’m eager to reply to these lovely people! 🙂
OOOh, I do love paper swaps.
I’m so rubbish at remembering to photograph the ones I send out before I package them up. But here are some lovely ones I’ve received lately!
