Lots of Postcrossing Cards

Standard

Here are some lovely postcrossing cards that have landed in my mail box recently.

Great to receive a card from Gozde in Turkey as not many cards arrive from there, and Birgit and Bianca in Germany.

These too from John in USA and Vitaly in Russia (that food looks yummy!)

These last two are from Nikki in USA and Cecilia in Italy. Doesn’t that card make you want to visit Italy?!

February #2 – International correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

More Letters for my Every day commitment. I’m finding it a challenge to think of someone every day but I’m still keeping up! I thought it might be more interesting to tell you who I sent to and why.

#6 Josephine in the Netherlands because she hasn’t been well & #7 Chloe a friend for just being lovely.

#8 Dennis & Pat (church friends) for just being lovely.

#9 Emily my cousins daughter at Uni, for encouragement & #10 My Auntie Glenda, just to say hello.

#11 Heather a friend locally who has been extremely poorly recently.

#12 Jeanne in the UK, the minister at our first church after we were married because of happy memories.

#13 Lisa who lives local, a friend who has ME, to make her smile, as I took this photo from the top of the church tower and the arrow points to where my house is!

And #14 Sarah, someone new in the US who is doing the same letter writing challenge as me.

I’m half way through the challenge now so keep watching 🙂

February – International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

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! 🙂

In my mail box this week 🙂

A lovely holiday postcard from my mail friend Antoni, thanks Antoni for this lovely card, the Guggenheim is a fabulous building!

Postcrossing cards from Dasha in Belarus and Tugce in Turkey,

Moni in Germany and Igor in Russia.

I especially love the stamps from Russia!

Stitched Textile Postcards

Standard

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! 🙂
