The more I exchange mail, the more I’m amazed at peoples generosity!
Paper swaps are always great, this one is from Lisa in Canada.
I was delighted to receive this handmade postcrossing mail from Elżbieta in Poland
What a gorgeous chicken!
And from my pen pal Lynn in USA, this fab package of rubber stamps, washi tape and a lovely long letter.
Must go, I have mail to post! 🙂
I love sending out Postcrossing cards, trying to send something people will like. Most people list there favourite things on their profile, so I can hunt through my stash and find something they will like. Otherwise I make a new postcard.
The first card was to Nina in Belgium who likes old film stills and the second to Sallie in the USA who loves the ocean.
The first one here is to Michael in Germany who likes pictures where people live and the second is to Aileen in Ukraine who likes cows. It’s good to think you might be able to make someone happy with a postcard.
This next letter is to Wendy in Canada who was a paper swap partner and we decided to try and keep in touch and share about what art projects we are doing with each other.
I got this amazing package arrive the other day, a return paper swap from Wendy in Canada.
There’s so many lovely papers, collected papers as well as papers that she has decorated herself.
I felt so spoiled, it felt like it was my birthday! I have started making things already with this lovely stuff 🙂
Oh my goodness, it’s been a while since I’ve spent time with you, I’ve been very busy. Here are some paper swaps to encourage you so stay with me.
The first is a mini swap from Valerie in the USA,
the second some exciting papers from Silvana in Brazil
and the third is from me to Wendy in Canada which I really enjoyed putting together and I hope she finds creative inspiration from them.
After such a busy time I am getting mixed up with what I’ve shown you and I think I’ve missed some. Never mind, take a look at these.
This is from my new penpal Josephine from the Netherlands, I just love this card, it’s definitely going on display somewhere.
This artists book was sent to wish me a happy spring, from Madeliene, also in the netherlands.
This mail art was sent to me from Amy who live in Canada. A lovely hand made book and a chicken containing lavender from Amy’s garden.
How lucky am I 🙂
I don’t know where these triangles came from, my creativity is obviously leaning that way! 🙂
This first triangle mail art was sent to my new mail art buddie, Amy in Canada.
The other triangles are being sent to Hannah in the UK and Jia in China
More triangles to come I expect! 🙂
Well the time had come, I posted my Elevated Envelopes today. To USA, UK, Canada, Austria and Israel!!!
A peak at the process, what an enjoyable task!
I wonder how many I shall get in return 🙂
