I started my week off by cleaning and organizing my mail art. I made special folders containing letters, stickers, stamps, items to reuse (like paper & clippings) and items I'd like to put into a journal or frame. This gave me a fresh outlook on the packages I put together this week and more room to spread out and appreciate the goodies that arrived in my postbox.
The incredibly kind Kye Sangha sent my daughter her own little mail art package with a sweet bunny card, a vintage Hallowe'en tag, a butterfly necklace and a googley-eye love doodle.
The stamps are adorable and I've trimmed them and set them aside for her own little collection. This arrival is timed perfectly as her birthday is just around the corner and her grandmother gave her her very first jewelry box. Kye can expect a kid thank you doodle card in the mail in the coming weeks.
My first package from Carol Whitley arrived and literally blew me away. The package, adorned with ship stamps and an illustrated anchor was packed with an incredible amount of stickers, tags, cards, envelopes, pretty paper, postcards, original art, a feather, postcards, magnets and markers.
I think I will colour in the insects and post one in each of my daughter's rooms so they can share my incredible mail art spoiling.
The slow moving slug on Russelle Adams' envelope didn't slow it down and it arrived in excellent time. I tucked in some more horse images, a few galaxy clippings and a funny tag, stamps, fuzzy initials, four doodle pages and a frond silhouette.
I'm taking a small mail break from posting about mail art. Next post will likely be on October 17th (I still cannot believe September has come and gone).
