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!

1st & 2nd Feb.

4th

and 5th ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s nice to think of someone who won’t be expecting it! ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Susanne, Iryna, Antoni, Josephene, Nelleke, Yuka and Deborah ๐Ÿ™‚

Stitched Textile Postcards

Standard

These are some textile cards I sent out recently, I made them using stitching and stamping on painted fabric.

I sent out two to Postcrossers, Jamie in USA and Richarda in Germany, both said they enjoyed recieving handmade cards.

I sent another to a penfriend in Netherlands

and included one in an art swap to my friend Nancy in America.

They all seem to have gone down quite well, so I think I’m going to make some more! ๐Ÿ™‚
