iHanna Postcard Swap 2019

This is such a great thing to be part of.

Hand make 10 postcards and send them out to 10 beautiful people whose addresses you’ve been given.

And then what happens? You get 10 beautiful handmade cards in return. It’s win win. 🙂

Can’t wait till next time!

Mail a Smile

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 🙂

February – International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

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! 🙂

Stitched Textile Postcards

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! 🙂
