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 🙂
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 🙂
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! 🙂
