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 🙂
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!
It’s nice to think of someone who won’t be expecting it! 🙂
These are some textile cards I sent out recently, I made them using stitching and stamping on painted fabric.
They all seem to have gone down quite well, so I think I’m going to make some more! 🙂
This is some recent beautiful mail that arrived in my mail box.
This beautiful book, handmade by Nancy in USA,
A collaged postcard from Renee also in USA
and a super collection of self-reliant themed goodies (and a book) from lovely Leeanne here in the UK.
Lots of blessing in my mail box, only one of the reasons to send mail! 🙂
I recently received these lovely postcards from Graeme in scotland,
this beautiful piece of mail art from Stripy Goose in England which was part of a large mail out of 365 cards to commemorate bird migration,
and this beautiful envelope containing a letter from my friend Susanne in Germany.
My mail makes me very happy and I treasure all my mail contacts! 🙂
