Sending Out Mail Art

I’ve just sent out my first lot of mail art this year.

This is a postcard I sent locally to my friends Emma and Martin as a little surprise.

These postcards were in response to the last Ihanna postcard swap I did for people who put their addresses on the postcards they sent to me, thanks Theresa, Libby and Gloria in USA and also to Melita in Germany.

This card is to Andrew in Cheltenham, England who I met on our road trip in November. He wanted to know what mail art was, so as it’s the first day of this years ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’, I’ve sent my first days mail to him.

A good start to February I think! 🙂

New Year Postcrossings

I’m excited to start my Postcrossings for 2020. I don’t know who I’m going to meet or what countries I’m going to send to or receive from. I’ve been a member of this project for Nine years and have sent 637 postcards around the planet and I’ve also received 637 postcards. That is totally spectacular, who’d have thought it possible. 🙂

My first postcards for this new year are to

Chen in Taiwan, Irina in Russia,

Cynthia in China,  Melanie in Germany

Mazli in Malaysia and Alena in Slovakia

Six different countries straight away, a very good start!

I’m happy to have sent out these replies to a couple of letters I got recently, off to the US and to Italy. What a lovely way to make friends. You connect with your heart, not being limited with visual obstacles of what each other look like, but an opportunity of real friendship, which is so nice. 🙂
