February – International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

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!

Christmas Surprise

Standard

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 πŸ™‚ Thanks Susanne!

Happy New Year!

Here are some cards I received from my lovely Mailmaker friends from far and wide. Some handmade and some carefully chosen πŸ™‚ Thanks Susanne, Iryna, Antoni, Josephene, Nelleke, Yuka and Deborah πŸ™‚

A lovely holiday postcard from my mail friend Antoni, thanks Antoni for this lovely card, the Guggenheim is a fabulous building!

Postcrossing cards from Dasha in Belarus and Tugce in Turkey,

Mail Friends Are nice & fun

Standard

I regularly go to our local collectors market which is held once a week here in Fakenham. Last week I found this vintage stamp.

It had loose letters spelling this.

I decided I wanted to make an anagram andΒ use all the letters and spell something to do with my mail. I managed to use all but about four and came up with this! πŸ™‚

Extra Care with Outgoing Cards

Standard

I am taking more and more care when I send my postcrossing cards. If the potential recipient of a card from me has subjects they really like or specific hobbies, I do try and relate in some way with the card I send.

These are some of my recent cards I’ve sent. Natalia Germany loves tea, Michelle in USA loves outside art and Anastasia from Ukraine likes old buildings.

Sirpia in Finland Likes to receive cards of significant building and Daia in Russia likes the sea.

Natalia in Belarus likes to receive cat cards, Marco in Germany writes fairy stories so I thought this card might inspire him andΒ  Eugenia in Russia likes drawing and I thought this was a fun drawing.
They are posted off with a blessing too! πŸ™‚
