Outgoing mail

It’s a pleasure to be able to slow down and take a thought for family you don’t see often and also write some letters.

Birthday cards made today for a lovely Auntie and Uncle

and letters to InCoWriMo friends

Latest InCoWriMo Letters

Standard

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 have been enjoying using some stationary I’ve bought.  I usually make my own but, taking part in the letter writing month in February encouraged me to buy some stationary and it’s made a nice change to use something different 🙂

All of these were bought from Paperchase.

Happy New Year!

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. 🙂
