The truth of the matter is that while letters have been faithfully going out and coming in, I haven't actually had much time to photo them. So here is the recent stack of outgoing that I photo'ed all ready and together (before some went out and some were delayed and some didn't get photo'ed at all).
|From top: Insurance information form (I'm just grateful to have any,|
so I won't complain!); clear envie with pink flowers going to Vanessa
in Germany; pretty calendar envie going to Snail Mail Fan in Canada;
glittery and beribboned pretty envie going to Svenja in Germany
(in a bigger envie, as I found out the PO sorters will snag on the ribbon. :(
Rather it get there safely than in ruins!);
SQUIRREL! to Laura in the UK. Read Laura's blog here.; small but
highly decorated blue envie to Su in Ireland. Wish you could
see more of it, but I don't show addresses unless the person lists theirs
on their website. See Su's beautiful blog here.; one of my beloved
peacock cards goes to Olivia who lives just about 30 minutes or so from me.
I found her blog link through the
Save the US Postal Service by Writing More Letters Facebook page.;
last but certainly not least, a cheeky little chickadee takes greetings
and news to one of my favorite pen pals and bloggers, Misty, The Pen Thief.
|2 wonderful publications: The Victorian Trading Co. catalogue, and the USA|
Philatelic catalogue from the USPS! :) Guess what some future posts will be on!
Also in my mailbox was a postcard about postcards from Kendall C. of Happy
Little Mailboxes; a wonderful, thick envie with pretty collage on it from a new
pen pal in MS; a reply letter from one I sent to France in October. She moves around
a lot for her job, so it takes a while for her to get mail and send a reply. But it was
worth the wait and I'll be writing her a long reply this week!; a pen pal in the UK
sent the cute puppy in the rain card; I got a lovely reply letter from pen pal Emily
in MI; pen pal Krista in CT sent me some Twinings tea (FAV!) and some tea stickers. :)
I had 2 calendars of backyard birds that I wanted to turn into envelopes. I decided to use these specifically for the challenge, because 12+12=24 and there are 24 days in the challenge! Perfect!
Here are all 24 made:
Here are my two favorites:
|A Blue Jay and a Cedar Waxwing. Love those!|
|Sent to 2 people I found on the challenge |
website and the red-headed guy in the middle
goes to Randi of My Happy Mailbox.
|To none other than Donovan B., the founder of the LWA. :)|
(PS- I took the library books back yesterday after the Post Office.) :)
