Here are some lovely postcrossing cards that have landed in my mail box recently.
Great to receive a card from Gozde in Turkey as not many cards arrive from there, and Birgit and Bianca in Germany.
These too from John in USA and Vitaly in Russia (that food looks yummy!)
These last two are from Nikki in USA and Cecilia in Italy. Doesn’t that card make you want to visit Italy?!
You may have noticed I am a bit obsessed with making my own art stamps. I have been looking to get some ready perforated paper for a few years and now I’ve found some! So here is my first official sheet of stamps with my new paper 🙂
Here a couple of letters I sent out a little while ago written on some of my favourite stationery, I just love it!
The first to Iryna in Belarus
and the second to Renee in USA.
I also sent off my postcards to Kat at Liberate Your Art, The deadline is not until march, but I missed it last year!
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! 🙂
Here’s another thing I got through the post for Christmas, from my friend Susanne in Germany. This beautifully decorated story box with Christmas goodies inside.
The story was written on the outside and as I opened the box it continued on the inside.
What a charming thing to receive by mail, hard to photograph, but I did my best 🙂 Thanks Susanne!
Here are some cards I received from my lovely Mailmaker friends from far and wide. Some handmade and some carefully chosen 🙂 Thanks Susanne, Iryna, Antoni, Josephene, Nelleke, Yuka and Deborah 🙂
