Loving sending out my mail for InCoWriMo
So far this week I’ve sent to Lisa in Norfolk UK,
my Dad in Northamptonshire, UK,
Tanya in Leicester, UK,
and to my sister in Northamptonshire, UK.
It’s lovely choosing different things for different people 🙂
I’ve just sent out my first lot of mail art this year.
This is a postcard I sent locally to my friends Emma and Martin as a little surprise.
These postcards were in response to the last Ihanna postcard swap I did for people who put their addresses on the postcards they sent to me, thanks Theresa, Libby and Gloria in USA and also to Melita in Germany.
This card is to Andrew in Cheltenham, England who I met on our road trip in November. He wanted to know what mail art was, so as it’s the first day of this years ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’, I’ve sent my first days mail to him.
A good start to February I think! 🙂
The postman arrived early this morning and bought very happy mail. A lovely letter from Nancy in Iowa USA and some washi tape I ordered from Sweet Supplies Store on Etsy (from Japan) . I love buying from there because she’s very efficient and packages so beautifully!
I can’t wait to use my washi tape 🙂
I have received a little bit extra from my postcrossings this week. Nadia from Russia sent me these lovely stamps along with her card and also obviously I got the stamps on the envelope. 🙂
Then I got this lovely first day cover from Sutan in Indonesia along with her card and an information leaflet telling me about the stamp as well.
Very happy 🙂
I’m excited to start my Postcrossings for 2020. I don’t know who I’m going to meet or what countries I’m going to send to or receive from. I’ve been a member of this project for Nine years and have sent 637 postcards around the planet and I’ve also received 637 postcards. That is totally spectacular, who’d have thought it possible. 🙂
My first postcards for this new year are to
Chen in Taiwan, Irina in Russia,
Cynthia in China, Melanie in Germany
Mazli in Malaysia and Alena in Slovakia
Six different countries straight away, a very good start!
Happy Mailing New Year to all of you who love making and receiving mail. I’m Excited to be starting a new year of making mail and to come up with some new Ideas and new ways I can cheer people up with mail. I’m also looking forward to making new faux postage stamps as well.
I have a new friend who lives in Norway who is not very well, so sending a nice letter is the least I can do.
Is there anyone you could cheer up with a letter or postcard? 🙂
Even though I have the annual Christmas cold, I’ve been enjoying sending out my Christmas mail. I’ve had one of my paintings made into our Christmas card this year, sent with my art stamps attached. I’ve included some other bits and pieces to my regular mail pals 🙂
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
and these are what I’ve received so far.
I do love taking part:-)
I loved getting this birthday Mail Art ready to send off to my friend in Hertford UK. I made it with acrylic paint and collage and a Gelli plate printed recycled envelope.
I like to help people feel special! 🙂
