New storage system

Standard

Over the holidays I decided I wanted to sort my Postcrossing cards into countries and also make a bigger box for them.

postcrossing-box-1

I re-used a shoe box that had already been re-used once to wrap one of my Christmas presents.

postcrossing-box-2

I made dividers from coloured card and labeled them with the postcrossing codes for each country.

postcrossing-box-3

Here’s my finished box with plenty of room to add more cards 🙂

postcrossing-box-4

I don’t normally have time for such projects, so really enjoyed doing it!

Here’s another mail swap with Antoni in Spain.

From a Friend

Standard

I have so many mail exchanges to show you,I can’t believe how slow I’ve been!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!

susanne-1 susanne-2

She loves portraits and she did one of me and sent it through the mail 🙂

Sending Love

Standard

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. 🙂

Outgoing Postcrossing cards

Standard

I often forget to record my outgoing Postcrossing cards, when I write them, I want to quickly get them stamped and posted. So here’s some I sent recently.

To Antji in Germany and Susan in USA I sent a postcard with a photo I took on the beach this summer where lots of people were having a lovely time!
