Outgoing Postcrossing Cards

Standard

Oooh, I didn’t realise how long it has been since I shared some mail with you. I was doing some art ready for an art exhibition which was taking up a lot of time. O have still been sending and receiving mail though so have lots to show you! ๐Ÿ™‚

These postcards have gone to Min Cheng in Taiwan and Ingred in Netherlands,

W Chang Australia and Heleena Finland

and Zong He in China and Marina in France.

What a super thing it is to be able to touch peoples lives across the world without using social media. Handwriting a note is always special! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sending Letters

Standard

I have been enjoying using some stationary I’ve bought.ย  I usually make my own but, taking part in the letter writing month in February encouraged me to buy some stationary and it’s made a nice change to use something different ๐Ÿ™‚

All of these were bought from Paperchase.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚
