Mail a Smile

You may have noticed I am a bit obsessed with making my own art stamps. I have been looking to get some ready perforated paper for a few years and now I’ve found some!Β  So here is my first official sheet of stamps with my new paper πŸ™‚

Christmas Surprise

Standard

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 πŸ™‚ Thanks Susanne!

Mail Friends Are nice & fun

Standard

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 andΒ 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! πŸ™‚

From a Friend

Standard

I have so many mail exchanges to show you,I can’t believe how slow I’ve been!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!

Sending Love

Standard

I did some marbling with a friend and was inspired to make these mail art postcards. The marbling reminded me of a wall and so I made some graffitti-ish postcards with stenciling. I sent these to Nancy and Renee’ both live in USA.

I really liked them and so was inspired to make some art stamps to match! This mail art was sent to Iryna in Belarus. πŸ™‚
