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! 🙂
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! 🙂
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! 🙂
I’ve received some beautiful mail recently in my mail box.
This lovely sea themed package from Jeanne in South Africa who is someone new to write to.
This beautiful water themed handmade book is from Mira who is also a new mail swap pal, she lives in USA
and this mail from Iryna who lives in Belarus with an ATC card to add to my collection.
Well, I’ve received some splendid mail art recently, some totally unexpected!
This gorgeous envelope is from Iryna in Belarus, I was pleased it contained two ATC cards 🙂
This lovely little book is from Jade who lives in the north of England.
This is from Leanne, another from the north of England!
I’m eager to reply to these lovely people! 🙂
I so enjoyed being part of the iHannah DIY Postcard swap and overwhelmed by the beautiful cards I received in return of mine! Here are all ten of them, it’s the first swap I’ve done with 100% return, thanks to all involved! 🙂
I’m looking forward to the next swap already!
NB: To all of my mail pals that are waiting for mail from me, please be patient, I haven’t forgotten you! Business has been good over the summer and I’ve been busy, but I would never forget any of you x x
