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™‚

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 andย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Incoming postcrossing cards

Standard

Here are some lovely postcrossing cards that have come in recently.

Lots of lovely pattern from Eva in Germany and Carlos in Spain

A good railway card from Morgan in USA and a hint towards Van Gogh from Herman in Germany

Happy Mail day to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

New storage system

Standard

Over the holidays I decided I wanted to sort my Postcrossing cardsย into countries and also make a bigger box for them.

postcrossing-box-1

I re-used a shoe box that had already been re-used once to wrap one of my Christmas presents.

postcrossing-box-2

I made dividers from coloured card and labeled them with the postcrossing codes for each country.

postcrossing-box-3

Here’s my finished box with plenty of room to add more cards ๐Ÿ™‚

postcrossing-box-4

I don’t normally have time for such projects, so really enjoyed doing it!

Pen pal Exchange

Standard

Here’s another mail swap with Antoni in Spain.

He sent me this postcard for Osborne brandy because my sir name is Osborn. ๐Ÿ™‚
