Art Stamps

Standard

Many of you I expect have seen that I make art stamps (faux postage stamps) I made some more the other day that I’m particularly pleased with! What do you think? 🙂

Outgoing mail

Standard

It’s a pleasure to be able to slow down and take a thought for family you don’t see often and also write some letters.

Birthday cards made today for a lovely Auntie and Uncle

and letters to InCoWriMo friends

 

Unusual and Gorgeous mail

Standard

I had two lovely things put in my mailbox recently.

These beautiful wings from a sadly diseased bird, which I’ve been given to use for an art project

and this beautiful handmade wedding invitation.

I haven’t been invited to a wedding for a for ages, so what to wear 🙂

Outgoing Postcrossing Cards

Standard

Oooh, I didn’t realise how long it has been since I shared some mail with you. I was doing some art ready for an art exhibition which was taking up a lot of time. O have still been sending and receiving mail though so have lots to show you! 🙂

These postcards have gone to Min Cheng in Taiwan and Ingred in Netherlands,

W Chang Australia and Heleena Finland

and Zong He in China and Marina in France.

What a super thing it is to be able to touch peoples lives across the world without using social media. Handwriting a note is always special! 🙂

Very Warm Postcrossings

Standard

Wow, we’re having a bit of a heatwave here in the UK and I’m having trouble keeping up with things. I’m writing my postcards but not managing to share them.

These are very recent arrivals in my mailbox.

These first two are from China and Russia.

These are from the UK and Belarus and unbelievably the first one is a sand sculpture, Wow!

This last one is from Tina in Taiwan and she has send me this lovely handmade card. I especially love handmade! 🙂

Now I’m going to have a very cold drink 🙂

Sending Letters

Standard

I have been enjoying using some stationary I’ve bought.  I usually make my own but, taking part in the letter writing month in February encouraged me to buy some stationary and it’s made a nice change to use something different 🙂

All of these were bought from Paperchase.
