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! 🙂
Here’s another thing I got through the post for Christmas, from my friend Susanne in Germany. This beautifully decorated story box with Christmas goodies inside.
The story was written on the outside and as I opened the box it continued on the inside.
What a charming thing to receive by mail, hard to photograph, but I did my best 🙂 Thanks Susanne!
Here are some cards I received from my lovely Mailmaker friends from far and wide. Some handmade and some carefully chosen 🙂 Thanks Susanne, Iryna, Antoni, Josephene, Nelleke, Yuka and Deborah 🙂
I regularly go to our local collectors market which is held once a week here in Fakenham. Last week I found this vintage stamp.
It had loose letters spelling this.
I decided I wanted to make an anagram and use all the letters and spell something to do with my mail. I managed to use all but about four and came up with this! 🙂
These are a couple of beautiful surprises that came through the post for me.
A mini kite 🙂
and some beautiful stencils with some other arty stuff
both from USA.
I love mail, is there anyone else want to join in! 🙂
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 of the gorgeous mail I’ve received recently.
A lovely envelope from Iryna in Belarus,
Josephine in Netherlands,
Roxanna in USA,
and a lovely birthday gift from Suzanne in Germany.
All very lovely and I can’t wait to send them something in return 🙂
