* More Mail ...

More mail art .. ready to fly out the door.  I stuffed two more envelopes last night.  Had fun decorating them.  Monday is the day ....   The envelopes are stuffed with hand painted bark bookmarks, paper cuts, a small nicho, a brightly painted tin ornament, day of the dead ephemera, some loteria cards, and various other small delights.  I had so much fun putting them together.  Oh ... also wrote a short letter to each participant.  I love getting a little note with my mail art.  It allows us to get to know a little about each other.

  1. Oh my, what lovelies to receive...the colours are vibrant, the art stunning and the idea is wonderful.

    I have to admit, I hate getting mail cause it's always bills, but this would be a great way of opening the mailbox and finding something I would actually like.

    BTW, I love the quote by Maya...so true...so very true.
    Glad you are feeling better.

  2. WHAT FUN plus and inspiration as well. The ladies will love their envelopes; they are terrific and exciting looking. Even the postal clerks will be talking about them.

    I noticed, one you received was postmarked Dec 30th; did you just now receive it?

    You will enjoy your interaction with both groups and the friendships you make will be life treasures.


  3. Hi Salma ... sorry I haven't e-mailed you back ... thanks so much for checking on me. I am feeling better, thanks. Just have to get my strength back. How's 'my' baby!?

  4. Hi Carolyn - yes, I just received the Dec. 30th postmark. That is really quick for here. I'm still waiting for some things which I know were mailed well before Christmas. It's the 'luck of the draw'. Yes, I think this is just what I need .. a little fun. Always did enjoy mail swaps.

  5. What a lovely idea. Mail art, huh! The postcards are great, really delightful. The notes are a nice idea too.
