Lovely Letters

If you send all sorts of mail, you get all sorts of mail in return πŸ™‚

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!

Latest InCoWriMo Letters

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, πŸ™‚ 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!

Sending Love

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. πŸ™‚
